Frisian wants to ditch Dutch nationality

Frisian nationalist and local councillor Sjoerd Groenhof is going to court in an attempt to ditch his Dutch nationality and become officially Frisian, the Volkskrant reports on Tuesday.

Groenhof says he is a Dutch citizen but a born and bred Frisian national and should be listed as such in official records.
Friesland is the northern province of the Netherlands.
