Banks will reopen 40 cash deposit machines across the country for entrepreneurs on Monday.

The machines will be permanently monitored during opening hours for safety reasons and will be emptied every day.

This is to prevent them from becoming the target of explosive attacks.

The banks had recently decided to turn off all more than five hundred so-called sealbag machines.

A new form of explosive cracking allowed explosives to remain in the vending machines, posing risks for users and passers-by.

But closing the vending machines posed many problems for entrepreneurs.

With the new measure, the banks want to offer entrepreneurs a temporary extra option for depositing cash.

In the meantime, according to the Dutch Banking Association (NVB), work is being done on a more permanent solution, so that more seal bag machines can be used safely again in the long term.
