Dutch back separate accommodation for gay and Christian asylum seekers
Gay and Christian asylum seekers may be given access to separate asylum centres, after Dutch politicians voted in favour of a motion today, according to the Telegraaf.
The Labour party lent its support to a vote on separate and safe accommodation for gay refugees, tipping the balance. The right-wing VVD was fiercely opposed.
The motion from the liberal democratic party D66, called for separate housing for gay, lesbian or transgender asylum seekers in acute need of it. It will also provide safe accommodation for Christian asylum seekers in need, winning the support of the ChristenUnie party.
