Francken had announced this type of measure when he took office last October. "I think this is a good decision. People who think it's necessary to fight for the sharia, to push gay people off buildings, to decapitate people and to strongly suppress women... they can stay there, because they won't enter Europe again", Francken explained.
Francken added that the persons concerned are "heavy cases". The newspapers of De Persgroep group (De Morgen and Het Laatste Nieuws) claim they are 6 men and 1 woman: 2 Algerian, 3 French, a Russian and a Dutch citizen. Francken took the decision based on information supplied by Intelligence Services.
Francken said that there are more to come.
