Good morning! In the Algarve in Portugal, further investigations into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann are being conducted today, and the Senate continues to debate the pension system.
We’ll start with the weather. A north wind carries cooler air to our country, making the temperature a lot lower than previous days. It will be 14 to 17 degrees, but it feels cooler because of the cool air.

What can you expect today?
In the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in 2007, an area is being combed today near a dam in a river in the Algarve in Portugal. Today the Senate will continue the debate on the pension system. Under the new law, funds will have until January 1, 2027 to make the transition. In the new system, the Dutch pension assets of hundreds of billions will go from a collective pot to largely individual pots. VVV-Venlo and Willem II will face each other in the play-offs for promotion and relegation. MVV Maastricht plays against NAC Breda.
What did you miss?
Mayors will be given the legal power to close houses, for example if there is a risk of an attack or if weapons are found in the house. The House of Representatives today approved a bill that regulates when a mayor may temporarily evict residents.
Even now mayors can close buildings if there has been an explosion or shooting or if there is a great danger to residents or the neighborhood. For houses, this is done on the basis of an emergency order.
These closures do not always hold up in court, because there must be serious nuisance in the home itself. Mayors therefore wanted clearer rules when they can temporarily send residents away.

It is the largest private donation ever to the Rijksmuseum, which depends on partners, funds and private institutions for a third of its income. According to the museum, the donor finds it important that the gardens remain freely accessible. Earlier, the benefactor – reportedly a lover of nature – also donated about 700 drawings and watercolors of animals and plants.
