Former deputy minister: Criminals have led to my resignation

Former deputy minister of security and justice, Fred Teeven, says that he had to resign his position because criminals had given information to journalists.  The issue which brought him down was that when he was a prosecutor, Teeven had concluded a financial agreement with a criminal.  It turned out that the money involved was far more than his superior, minister Ivo Opstelten, had reported to Parliament. Opstelten also resigned as a result of this issue.  Teeven maintains that the deal he made with the criminal was a very good one for the government.
