Deport criminal foreigners, say MPs

Foreigners who are found guilty of committing crimes in the Netherlands should be deported, right-wing opposition MPs and MPs from the ruling Christian Democrats have told junior justice minister Nebahat Albayrak.

The calls came during a parliamentary debate on the case of two Moroccan brothers who have been declared undesirable aliens because of their criminal records. But the courts have refused to sanction their deportation on technical grounds.
Albayrak is currently working on plans to deal with criminal foreigners and expects to present them to parliament in the autumn, the Telegraaf reports.
