MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Thirteen asylum seekers committed suicide in Dutch refugee centers in the first six months of 2014, while 80 others attempted to kill themselves, the Dutch Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (COA) said Friday.
The Volkskrant newspaper, citing sources in the COA, said there were a total of 2,741 reported incidents in 2014.
The full list of incidents includes 461 cases of “unacceptable behavior”, 47 physical attacks, 58 missing refugees and 23 hunger strikes.
The COA was called upon to monitor incidents taking place in Dutch detention centers after the death of Russian national Alexander Dolmatov, who killed himself in 2013 after he was told that his request for asylum was rejected.
The investigation into Dolmatov’s death, published by Dutch authorities in April 2013, revealed that he had attempted suicide previously and should not have been placed in a detention center. The report stated that Dolmatov did not have proper medical care in detention following his first unsuccessful suicide attempt.
