Court rejects claim against state over intelligence sharing

Wednesday 23 July 2014 | 14:38 CET | News
The Dutch intelligence services AIVD/MIVD may exchange information with the US NSA, according to a ruling by a court in The Hague. Through such an exchange with foreign intelligence agencies, the Dutch services may acquire information gathered abroad that they otherwise would not have the means to obtain. This does not mean that the acquisition and eventual use of such information violates international treaties or national law, the court found. The case was brought against the state by a number of individuals and associations, including Internet Society Nederland.
