Van Raak: “Curaçao’s gambling mafia bought Secret Service”

Ronald van RaakWILLEMSTAD, THE HAGUE - Information about the Dutch Secret Service (AIVD) and the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is probably in the hands of the wrong people. The gambling mafia in Curaçao managed to buy the Curaçao Secret Service (VDC).

This is according to the Dutch MP for the Socialist Party (SP), Ronald van Raak in his column on ThePostOnline. He based his findings on documents of the VDC, the secret service of Curacao, which he got hold of this week. According to Van Raak, these documents clearly state how the gambling mafia managed to buy the secret service.

In 2011, all the information from the VDC were copied, destroyed or seized, writes Van Raak. He calls this action “the biggest robbery ever in a secret service”. The immediate cause of the information robbery, according to Van Raak is the negative screening report of the VDC on a number of ministers.

Van Raak has reacted with dismay at the fact that the Dutch Minister of Kingdom Relations, Ronald Plasterk does not act against the bizarre corruption in Curaçao. He mentions Plasterk’s lack of action "shocking."

According to Van Raak, information from the AIVD and the CIA probably ended up in the wrong hands.
