Prime Minister: Preventing Threats to the Netherlands Requires Additional Money

The Dutch cabinet has budgeted an additional 128.8 million euros to be spent over the next five years on structural improvements in the fight against terrorism and jihadi threats.  Almost 29 million euros will be used for the security of specific institutions, including parliament and Jewish institutions.  About 69 million euros will be spent on the intelligence services, and 14 million for rapid response teams. The analysis undertaken by the NCTV, the National Coordinator for the Fight against Terror, shows that the current level of threats will last for a long period to come.
