    Dutch Minister Resigns After Serious Migrant Crimes Hidden from Data

    The Dutch immigration minister has stepped down following outcry over a government migrant crime report which hid serious migrant crimes including rape and murder under the category of “other”.



    Resigning from his position on Tuesday, Mark Harbers stressed that no “deliberate concealment” of the figures had taken place, but said he took “full responsibility” for having “misinformed” the Dutch Parliament with regards to the report.

    The Ministry of Justice document, which recorded crimes in which asylum seekers were the suspects, listed the number of various misdemeanours, such as shoplifting and pickpocketing while failing to identify much more serious offences like murder, child abuse, and rape as these were simply lumped together under the heading “other”.

    According to the Telegraaf, which revealed the omissions last week, this category covered around 1,000 cases including 79 alleged sexual offences, 51 serious assaults, and 31 cases of attempted murder or manslaughter.

    The statistics showed asylum seekers from safe countries such as Morocco and Algeria were suspects in almost half of the 4,600 incidents recorded in the report, which was released in the name of “full transparency”, according to Harbers, who had said that “only by providing [such] insight can there be support for the reception of refugees”.

    Harbers’ departure came after there was serious criticism of the report in the press and from politicians including the populist Freedom Party leader, Geert Wilders, who described the Justice Ministry of having acted like “a mafia gang” in how they presented the figures.

    Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte posted on social media to express sadness over the resignation, tweeting: “Politics can be tough. Respect for State Secretary Harbers’ decision to resign… But it is incredibly unfortunate that the cabinet must say goodbye to such a talented and committed liberal.”

    The resignation was described in local media as a “heavy blow” to the ruling VVD party, which already this year faced a major setback when the Eurosceptic, anti-mass immigration Forum for Democracy party went from zero seats to becoming the largest force in the Dutch senate at provincial elections in March.

    He lied and misrepresented important and serious data! Why is this a sign of anyone you'd logically want in a position of importance?

    Is this the idea of a "committed liberal" to some of them? Someone who will fudge the data to uphold this ideal of political correctness while your own people are being assaulted, raped and killed. All these kinds of politicians in important positions are supposed to have the safeguarding of their population as the prime importance. If they can't understand that obligation, then they should be fired and never rehired in any level of power and obligation. And any politician who speaks out towards such a person with good remarks should be questioned regarding their devotion to their people as well.

    What are these idiots protecting but their misguided sense of political correctness brought on my learned guilt. They'd sacrifice the future safeguarding of their people for the sake of being politically correct. That's the real problem!

    The article has a minor error. He is not a minister, but more akin to an under-secretary. And of course they will praise him, he did not do anything wrong in there eyes. Except of course that it came out that he his department did some creative bookkeeping.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
