CTIVD: Minister Not Entitled to Authorize Taping of Journalist


The Commission of Supervision of the Intelligence and Security Services (CTIVD) has concluded that Minister of the Interior Guusje ter Horst (Labor) wrongly authorized the AIVD intelligence service to tape the telephone conversations of Jolande van der Graaf and Joost de Haas of the Telegraaf. Two courts had already decided that Ter Horst had acted wrongly.
