Amsterdam is to tighten its approach to illegal immigrants in the city, particularly those from central and eastern Europe. It is planning to improve its registration procedures, get tougher on illegal subletting of housing and crack down on crime.

In Amsterdam there are 12,000 officially registered immigrants from central and eastern European countries, less than in either Rotterdam or The Hague.

Drug addiction and psychological problems are the cause of many of the problems, the city says.
