Dutch government sued for NSA spying collaboration

This video is called Edward Snowden, A Truth Unveiled (Documentary).

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Government indicted for espionage by the USA

Update: Wednesday, 6 Nov 2013, 13:26

[Home Affairs] Minister Plasterk is sued by a group of citizens and organizations, including the Dutch Association of Journalists, the Association of Penal Law lawyers and cyber activist Rop Gonggrijp. This is because of the spying by the U.S. government.

Plasterk said last month that the [United States] NSA intercepted data of 1.8 million Dutch telephone conversations. The plaintiffs say that the data will end up with the [Dutch secret service] AIVD, because of the coöperation between the Netherlands and the U.S.

“By using NSA data Plasterk is laundering data obtained illegally,” say the plaintiffs.
