Police will review the profiles of volunteers at festivalsThursday, 15 June 2017 20:37
Minister Jan Jambon sent a memorandum to the organisers of music festivals in the aftermath of the attacks in Paris and Brussels. Volunteers in charge of supervision had to be screened by the local police.
The Pukkelpop, the Graspop or the Werchter music festivals decided to do more. Their organisers sent the names of all volunteers to the local police in advance, including e.g. information on people behind beverage stands.
A spokesman said the decision to review all volunteers was made at the local level. "The memorandum did not require it, but if a risk analysis requires it, the police and the local administration are of course free to extend the screening to all the employees."
