Some 14,000 Brussels police officers participated in a protest against the abolition of a special arrangement allowing them to retire in their fifties. Police unions have threatened a national strike if the plan to increase the pension age to 52 will be implemented. Spokespersons explained that police officers have always had an early retirement arrangement due to the hardship associated with the job.
