On October 9, she will present an episode of Pointer that is entirely devoted to the ‘channel drama’ in Almelo. ‘About 400 residents of Twente were damaged after dredging a canal, and discovered that after that you have little say as a citizen. The province is responsible, but may determine per home whether someone will receive compensation and can settle objections independently. Even going to court is almost impossible. Independence is a long way off, according to public administration experts. Why is this allowed?’, according to the broadcaster. “I’m really looking forward to working for Pointer. It is an honor to strengthen Pointer’s rock-solid team and to contribute to exposing abuses and issues that are currently at play in society’, says Frank.
