,,Deze mensen zijn dood doordat de overheid ervoor kiest ze op te sluiten in provisorische complexen,’’ zegt M. Collet van de Vereniging van
Asieladvocaten en Juristen Nederland.
,,De overheid heeft boter op het hoofd,’’ zegt AbvaKabo-bestuurder Dieten, die zich bezighoudt met het gevangeniswezen. ,,Eerst is er zwaar
bezuinigd op gevangenissen, daarna moesten er halsoverkop complexen voor bolletjesslikkers en vluchtelingen worden bijgebouwd.’’Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
