Gay refugees placed in separate accommodation after attacks
Five gay asylum seekers in Amsterdam have been moved to a new location after they were spat on and attacked by other people in their refugee centre, the Parool says on Friday.
The five – three from Syria, one from Iran and one from Iraq – have been moved to a house owned by housing corporation Rochdale. Junior justice minister Klaas Dijkhoff said earlier he did not support separate accommodation for gay refugees because it was 'stigmatising'.
A spokesman for the Salvation Army, which is in charge of refugee accommodation in the capital, said the men's safety could not be guaranteed in their former housing.
