Traders in stolen goods can no longer go through forced registration. Minister Grapperhaus (Justice and Security) sends a bill to the House of Representatives on Monday with which all second-hand items and persons they offer must be placed in a national register.
“ Earlier figures show that 80 percent of the items stolen from thefts and burglaries are resold,” says the CDA control man. “Seiders, fellers and buyers of this stuff will be more likely to run into the lamp if they start trading in this.”
Now the rules for registration vary by municipality, the bill should prevent thieves from resorting to municipalities where they have free play. “Crime must not pay off, and we want to remove the motivation to steal and break in,” says the minister.
