WSO board member finally gets permit
After an appeal, WSO board member Sijing Liu has received a residence permit from the immigration service IND.
In November 2007 Liu heard that the IND would not be renewing her residence permit. Her request was refused because her monthly budget was 1 euro and 24 cents below the amount required. From August 2007 until June 2008 she was unable to leave the country to visit her boyfriend abroad. ‘I appealed through the IND complaints line and the decision was eventually reversed. Of course, I’m very pleased with the outcome.’
