The 31-year-old The Hague-based policeman who was arrested last Tuesday for leaking classified information in exchange for money, was part of Geert Wilders’ personal security detail, the Dutch Public Prosecutor has revealed.
What the nature of the leaked information was, and whether it directly compromised Wilders’ safety is as of yet unknown.
According to the prosecutor:
The officer was in training. He was on a two-month internship at the Security Service (DBB) until February this year, and was involved in Wilders’ security.
The police officer made the news in 2012 when he shot and killed a 17-year-old suspect at a The Hague train station.
Last February, the DBB made headlines because one of their agents, Farris Kattat, who might have been involved in Wilders’ security, was also arrested for leaking classified information.
