Minister has already given permission for taps




and hacks in violation of the WIV
Ministers of the Interior or Defense have already illegally authorized the AIVD and MIVD several times on requests for special powers based on the WIV. That is the conclusion of the Review Committee Commitment Powers.

The Review Commitment Commitment sees, after consultation, some improvements in the way in which the intelligence services draw up their requests, but continues to focus attention. This is stated in a progress letter to the House of Representatives, in which the TIB reports on the findings and activities.

The arrival of the TIB was one of the safeguards at the entry into force of the Intelligence and Security Services Act, in July . The commission must monitor the legitimacy of the deployment of untargeted taps of the cable, telephony tapes and hacks of the intelligence services.

Opposite the NIS, TIB chairman Mariëtte Moussault reports that one in twenty requests for the use of special powers was unlawful: “Sometimes the intelligence services, for example, do not explain why a tap should be placed that also hits a non-target. In other cases we simply find that a hack or tap goes too far. ” The committee did not judge part of the requests because of a lack of information.

Before 1 May 2019, the Review Committee for Commitments will issue an annual report.
