A civil servant in Rotterdam has provided information revealing that there are allegedly Turkish mosque-related boarding schools operating in the city. According to his information the Faith mosque has housed girls as a residence, against the fire regulations which would not allow for the mosque to have a housing license. The NRC Handelsblad reports that there are “boarding schools” of the sort in Arnhem, Utrecht, Breda and Amsterdam as well as Rotterdam.
The media attained the information about the mosque from the civil servant, who first gave the information to the city. The Rotterdam city council has sent a letter to the “whistle blower” stating that his job will be terminated with immediate effect because of his dereliction of duty in sharing information considered secret.
