Newspapers fined for illegal delivery

The Netherlands’ daily papers have been given a joint fine of €2.1m by the Labour Inspectorate for using illegal immigrants to deliver newspapers. Random checks found 71 deliverers without proper papers, of whom 55 were in the country illegally. The newspapers are to appeal, saying they are not responsible for the personnel policy at delivery agents.
