Mayor Peter Noordanus of Tilburg has complained to the police about suspected ill-treatment of children at two Koranschools in his town.
The suspicions are based on an investigation by the Municipal Health Service (GGD). Six children of ten and eleven year old have declared that they were witnesses of the ill-treatment. At a Moroccan school a teacher is accused of hitting children with his hands and threatening to whip them. The other complaints concern a Somalian school.
