Minister ‚totally‘ disagrees with court squatter ruling, awaits details

Justice minister Fred Teeven is considering what action to take after the appeal court in The Hague said the new anti-squatting law breaks European human rights agreements.

The court ruled that squatters who are faced with eviction must be allowed to take the matter to court, but Dutch law does not include this right.

Teeven is quoted by Nos tv as saying he ‚totally‘ disagrees with the court but is first waiting to read its written findings.

A number of evictions have been cancelled following the ruling. The anti-squatting law came into effect on October 1.
