André Rieu Does Not Have to Pay a Fine For Child Labor

André Rieu Does Not Have to Pay a Fine For Child Labor
 
NU magazine: André Rieu does not have to pay the fine which the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment had imposed on him due to performance of minor pan-flute players.

This was determined on Monday by the administrative judge of the court of Limburg André Rieu does not have to pay the fine, which the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment had imposed on him for due to the performance  of minor pan-flute players.

The fine was imposed for violations resulting from a 2015 performance during Rieu's traditional summer concert on the Vrijthof in Maastricht, by Romanian pan-flute virtuoso Gheorghe Zamfir and his music and dance ensemble, who were guest performers. A group of young pan-flute players were also part of the ensemble.

Two of them were younger than sixteen and had performed for the public after 11 pm. However, the court finds the basis for the fine insufficient. ARP (André Rieu Productions), the company of Rieu, is not clearly identifiable as an employer of children.

Rieu at that time said that he thought it was childish that he was fined: "It was not until the last concert that someone from the Labor Inspector's office came up and cited us right away, which is very cowardly and absurd, but well - that's how this country is."
