Freedom Party shocked by integration report
Freedom Party MP Joram van Klaveren says the annual integration report from the Netherlands Institute for Social Research (SCP) paints a "shocking" picture of crime among non-Western ethnic minorities.
The SCP report is not due to be published until 8 February but, according to the anti-Islam Freedom Party, the figures show that Moroccans and Antilleans are more than five times as likely to be crime suspects as indigenous Dutch people.
"Apart from the most recent crime figures, the high levels of unemployment and the enormous dependence on state benefits are typical of the failure of integration. Non-Western minorities are almost three times as likely to be unemployed as the indigenous population, 12.6 percent compared with 4.5 percent."
