Germany: German Intelligence Chief under spotlight at NSA/BND spying inquiry

21 May 2015

Gerhard Schindler, the president of the German Federal Intelligence Services (BND), was accused of shirking responsibility for his role in the alleged cooperation between the US National Security Agency (NSA) and BND during the parliamentary commission [session] into the issue in Berlin, Thursday.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:

The Belgian prosecutor will begin an investigation into reports that the German secret service has spied for years on Belgian targets. An article about this in the Belgian business paper De Tijd has been confirmed by the federal prosecutor in Belgium.

The prosecutor decided last Friday to investigate this. The criminal investigation may have implications not only for those involved, but it can also put pressure on the diplomatic relations between Belgium and Germany.

Prime Minister Charles Michel will for the time being not react to this issue.

[Dutch ] Minister Plasterk announced last month that the [Dutch secret service] AIVD is investigating whether the German secret service also has spied upon Dutch targets.
