DUTCH WOMAN DENIED PASSPORT BECAUSE APPARENTLY SHE IS TOO “ANNOYING”

Many people have been denied passports and visas based on unsatisfying verification by the authorities.

Many people have been denied passports and visas based on unsatisfying verification by the authorities.

But the reason why this 42-year-old Nancy Holten was denied a passport by the residents’ committee in Gipf-Oberfrick in the canton of Aargau, is too weird to be true.

Nancy was denied a Swiss passport on the grounds that her campaigning and scrutinising of local customs was annoying. Yeah, you read it right.

Mrs Holten was born in the Netherlands but moved to Switzerland at the tender age of eight before having two children – both of whom hold Swiss citizenship and passports.

Reportedly the bizarre that she has gained a bad reputation is the community because of her uncompromising stance on, of all things, COW BELLS!

She has spoken out over hunting, piglet racing, as well as the loudness of the municipality’s church bells! Honestly, she might not get a passport but the complain-freak that she seems like it would have been good to just give her a passport and let her leave the town and its people alone.

The President of the local branch that denied her application took to the media to assert that Holten had a “big mouth!” He continued to question why on Earth they should give her the “present” of citizenship when she “annoys us and doesn’t respect our traditions.”

In her defense, Mrs Holten said “Many people think that I am attacking their traditions. But that was not what it was about, it was never about that. What primarily motivated me about the cowbells was the animals’ welfare.”

Mrs Holten could still be granted Swiss citizenship, however, as her case was advanced on for consideration by the cantonal government in Aargau.
