Summary: 

On February 21, Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad  that confidential police information has regularly been leaked to a Moroccan-Dutch criminal organisation by a police service tasked with the security of Geert Wilders and members of the Royal Household. An experienced police officer from a Moroccan background, working with the so-called Service Safety and Security (DBB), is suspected of sending information derived from police investigations to members of a criminal organisation guilty of fencing and laundering criminal money.

According to a number of high-ranking police officers, the officer in question was tasked with so-called ‘area scans’. Hij reconnoitred locations that threatened people like Geert Wilders would visit. For his work, the officer had access to a database with highly confidential information. “For work of this nature, you need to be able to request almost all information that you think you need,” according to an investigating officer. The officer suspected of corruption has been apprehended last Monday on suspicion of violating professional secrecy and is suspended from duties.
