Latest violence prompts discussion on Antwerp’s drug problem
Tuesday, 25 August 2020
As a result of the recent wave of grenade attacks and shootings, the Antwerp city council decided today to hold a thematic debate in September in the City Council’s Security Committee.
The various people in charge, such as the federal judicial police, will be invited, the cabinet of Mayor Bart De Wever (N-VA) said.
On Tuesday, the Green Party had come up with the proposal to convene a thematic session on the drugs approach of the city, the federal government and the judicial services. The party believes that the promised cooperation of the police services should be strengthened and made more efficient.
