Chief of Police: Terror attack unavoidable in the Netherlands
The outgoing commander of the Dutch national police, Gerard Bouman, said that he is convinced that there will be a terrorist attack in the Netherlands, noting that the country is one of the few in Europe which has not yet experienced such an attack.
He stated that there was far too much pressure on the police, saying “we no longer are dealing with separate incidents, but with a continuous current of incidents.” He named refugees and counter-terrorism as the two major police problems of today. Eighty-two terror-related investigations are currently underway. He also mentioned that the national police are running out of money.
