THE HAGUE, 02/10/07 - A highly placed official at the Military 
Intelligence and Security Service (MIVD) has lost very secret 
information from the US National Security Agency (NSA). He has been 
sentenced behind closed doors for this, according to newspaper De 
Telegraaf.

As one of the leaders of the MIVD department of Interceptions, the 48 
year old man from Utrecht had access to the very secret data coming from 
the NSA. This US security services listens into the worldwide telecom 
and Internet traffic of terrorists and top criminals.

The MIVD official, described as L.K., was sentenced by the district 
court in The Hague in a closed session to 120 hours of community service 
for violating official secrecy, according to the newspaper. The matter 
apparently concerned losing a memory stick containing information about 
investigations by the NSA given the stamp of top secret.

The newspaper bases its report on "intelligence sources." The defence 
ministry refuses all comment on the affair, which is extremely sensitive 
in relations with the US.

According to the indictment, the man had been careless with the 
information between June 2005 and January 2006. He apparently reported 
the loss of the USB stick to the head of the MIVD himself at the 
beginning of 2006. He was suspended, after which the prosecution was 
launched which has now led to conviction.
