Publication of the review report of the CTIVD arising from the crash of flight MH17
On the request of the Minister of Interior and Kingdom Relations and the Minister of Defence, the Review Committee on the Intelligence and Security Services (the CTIVD) conducted an investigation into the role of the AIVD and the MIVD in the decision-making related to the security of flight routes. The Dutch Safety Board (the OVV) asked the ministers to submit this request to the CTIVD.
The report of the CTIVD focuses on answering to the following research questions:
• Do the AIVD and the MIVD have a legal duty related to the security of flight routes through foreign airspace?
• How is the formal consultation structure organized between the AIVD and the MIVD and the civil aviation parties with regard to security issues and what information exchange takes place in this respect?
• What information did the AIVD and the MIVD possess prior to the crash of flight MH17 regarding the security of civil airplanes above Eastern Ukraine and did they share this knowledge with external parties?
The CTIVD presented its report to the OVV on 10 April 2015. The report of the CTIVD in its entirety is included in an appendix to the report on the crash of flight MH17 that the OVV published today.
