amsterdam - The Dutch police work closely with the Russian secret service FSB. That's what the Volkskrant writes Saturday, who has spoken confidentially with nine people involved. According to the newspaper, the meetings lead to concerns at the AIVD and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Since 2009, FSBs regularly come to the Netherlands for consultation with the US FBI and the police. The meetings are intended to tackle cybercriminals, but the Ministry and the AIVD do not sit well. Especially now the relations between the countries are tense since the annexation of the Crimea and the shooting of MH17.
The police must inform the AIVD if people come to the FSB and report on it afterwards, as agreed. Also, since MH17, meetings may no longer take place in Driebergen, where criminal investigation is conducted on the plane crashed. This should prevent FSB's from getting too close.
