Netherlands to introduce stricter sentences for forced marriage
The Dutch government is considering introducing stricter sentences for those who force people to marry.
Justice Minister Ivo Opstelten wants to raise the maximum sentence from nine months to two years. People usually enter into a forced marriage as the result of strong psychological pressure or under threat of violence.
