Information from Dutch Intelligence Services Falls into Criminals’ Hands

Socialist Party parliamentarian Ronald van Raak says that information from the Dutch intelligence service, AIVD, has come into the hands of criminals after data was stolen from VDC, the intelligence service on the island of Curaçao.  Van Raak says that this is perhaps the largest theft of information from any intelligence service, ever.  A senior employee of the VDC told its ombudsman that he had to tell a number of Columbians about the security procedures of the VDC upon the orders of the prime minister of Curaçao.  A few weeks later, he was ordered to give over all the code words, and thereafter, all data could be copied, including those which had been exchanged between the AIVD and the American intelligence services.
