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.

The case was brought against the state by a number of individuals and associations, including Internet Society Nederland.
