There will be temporary extra supervision at the asylum seekers’ center in Budel. State Secretary Van der Burg has announced that an extra team of supervisors will be deployed around the asylum seekers’ center in the coming ten months to prevent nuisance. It’s a test.

The team will consist of 4 people. A similar team has already started at the Ter Apel reception location.

Lately there has been regular nuisance around the asylum seekers’ center in Budel. Last month it was announced that no bus will stop at the center for the time being. Carrier Hermes decided to do so because bus drivers were attacked.

According to Hermes, there were daily incidents between bus drivers and asylum seekers. Drivers were spat on and threatened after conflicts about not paying for a ticket, Hermes told Omroep Brabant.

‘Abusing hospitality’

State Secretary Van der Burg (VVD) says he has no understanding whatsoever for “people who ask for our protection” but then “misuse our hospitality”. Van der Burg: “This group ruins it for the rest and undermines support for shelters for people fleeing war or persecution.”

Van der Burg acknowledges that the group of asylum seekers who cause nuisance is small, but says that the impact on those affected is enormous.

The supervisors will focus on “personal contact” and on preventing nuisance. Initially, this only happens on working days, but “if that is better” it can also be done on other days, according to the ministry.
