Netherlands will not allow Muslim police officers to swear their allegiance to the force on the Holy Koran, home affairs minister Guusje ter Horst told parliament on Tuesday, Dutch News reported.

As is the case with civil servants, they will only be able to use a Christian or a neutral oath.

Members of the armed forces and civilians working for the defence ministry are allowed to to swear on the Holy Koran.
