That insect is to ensure that an entire wing in the asielcentrum since last weekend is empty. Until, at the earliest, next week the asylum seekers to return.

The were some residents of the repatriëringscentrum in Steenokkerzeel that Friday the alarm went. They had various steekwondjes – similar to that of a mosquito and got therefore to the executive board of 127bis. It soon became clear that the wounds were coming from the bedwants. That red-brown to brown insectje of barely half a centimeter large lives from the blood of the human being and is located mainly in and around the bed. “The insects often occur in spaces where different people live,” said Dominique Ernould, spokeswoman for the Immigration Service. “How in the repatriëringscentrum ended up, is not clear. But some residents lived the past few months, not in the most hygienic conditions, so that may be a reason.”
