Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte and his cabinet resign as a result of a child welfare fraud scandal.

The childcare benefits scandal is a political scandal in the Netherlands concerning false allegations of fraud made by the Tax and Customs Administration while attempting to police the distribution of childcare benefits. It is estimated that, between 2013 and 2019, the authorities wrongly accused 26,000 parents of making fraudulent claims to childcare benefit, requiring them to pay back the allowance they had received in its entirety. In many cases, this sum amounted to tens of thousands of euros, driving families into severe financial hardship and mass suicide. See more on Childcare benefits scandal
