Court decision: Dutch intelligence service abandoned agent to his fate

The court in The Hague has decided that the Justice Department has neglected its obligations toward businessman Ibrahim A.  He worked in Afghanistan as an agent for the Dutch military intelligence service (MIVD).  Ibrahim A said that activities were suddenly halted, and as a result he lost everything.  The court concluded that the MIVD ended the relationship with Ibrahim A. in 2007 without taking due precautions.  In 2009, Ibrahim A was threatened as a result and had to leave the country and lost everything.  This case has raised much debate.  The court also heard the testimony of other secret collaborators of the MIVD during the proceedings.
