Netherlands: Moroccan, Polish criminals speak each other's language
Via De Telegraaf:
Acting police chief in the Haaglanden district, Paul van Musscher, says that Moroccan youth speak with their criminal colleagues in Polish and vice versa.
Van Musscher says this shows there's a melting pot in the neighborhoods and that they have close contacts with each other as they enter the criminal world. "By speaking each other's language you create new trade relations. This is truly a 'VOC mentality' of which Balkenende will probably not be proud."
Former Dutch PM Balkenende used the term 'VOC mentality' (Dutch East India Company) to encourage Dutch entrepreneurship.
