  • Description

    So heavy has become the flow of stowaways from Indonesia to Holland that the Dutch Government has issued a warning: any Indonesian who attempts to enter Holland illegally in future will be refused admission.

    Yesterday, 11th June, no less that 69 stowaways arrived on one ship, the Johan van Oldenbarneveldt, hidden among the complement of 1,200 passenger, mostly repatriates. This brings the total of recent stowaways to nearly 200. The majority cannot claim Dutch nationality and have no legal papers. They say that they "feel Dutch"and are lonely, now that their Dutch friends have returned to Holland.

    The 69 stowaways yesterday left their ship under police protection, but they may be the last to be allowed to set foot on Dutch soil, after the official warning.
