Militaire Inlichtingen- en Veiligheidsdienst (MIVD) is the Military Intelligence and security service of the Netherlands, the militaristic counterpart of the AIVD. It was formerly known as the Militaire Inlichtingendienst (MID) and was given its current name in 2002. MIVD is part of the Dutch MOD. The MiVD is different from the AIVD as it focuses on international threats, in particular military and "government-sponsored" cyberterrorism.
Drug trafficking connections
Willem Matser, an officer in Dutch Military Intelligence and adviser to NATO Secretary General was arrested in 2003 together with an Italian crime boss on a 9 digit money laundering charge. Sibel Edmonds has cited this incident as evidence of NATO's connections with the high-level international drug trade.
|"When you name 'Operation Gladio', alarm bells go off at high-positions, and they'll do their best to kill the case". (..) "Justice ministries in Belgium, Netherlands and in Amsterdam have covered-up arms smuggling. Multiple government institutions used liaisons to participate. They were incredibly involved."|
In 2007 investigative reporter Peter R. de Vries stunned the public with new revelations about Operation Gladio in a 4 year-long investigation. Linking numerous weapons-depots in Utrecht, Amsterdam and Roermond to Gladio. Several corrupt police officers were revealed to have turned a blind eye and even massively and actively participated in the distribution and hiding of weapons and munition to Belgian and "unknown foreign Gladio-criminals". At first, weapons ended in the hands of the Dutch main drug lords. The segment revealed incredible support for the "criminals" - according to the official narrative - running gladio. A possible link to the Brabant Massacres can be found on ISGP.
The weapons were traced back to be used in murders on police-agents, robberies on armored cash transport cars, assassinations and more in Denmark, France, Germany according to further investigation by Brandpunt. Most notable was the consistent occurrence of arms smuggling and suspects arrested but released and not prosecuted after the intervention of public prosecutors that derailed investigations until the statute of limitations kicked in. Even when a new owner of the munition-shop requested the shop to be cleared of any wrong-doing publicly, summary proceedings had been rejected two times. Arms dealers that were suspected of smuggling Gladio-weapons were never jailed but even given their license back while the case was under investigation. Meanwhile, weapons had been linked to "murders on communists", the MiVD was listed as the company to have covered-up the instances of massive thefts of the underground-depots in Dutch woods.
At least one known company indicted has admitted it's former owners were probably involved in Gladio. The whole investigation looked like a mafia movie as several retired owners only declared to the police that "they should stop searching" as "this goes much further", being released the next day. The Belgian journalist interviewed called it "ludicrous" that the Dutch did not instigate a parliamentary inquiry as it appeared all Gladio-groups just went rogue and "were full with Nazi's in every Gladio-country" implicating them in the Olaf Palme assassination.
An investigation by NRC revealed government intelligence agencies including the AIVD often seek out journalists to help them, in particular in the Middle East. Half of the 32 journalists and editors that NRC spoke with had been approached by an intelligence agency, with the AIVD admitting them to be a structural part of our network. Whistleblower site Publeaks alerted the NRC to investigate this after a "unknown source" leaked a file to Publeaks with a document naming 21 journalists in 2016.
Turkey Spy network
According to Turkish media in 2018, a man was arrested after transferring money Istanbul in the country to people who gave him information about Turkey's military operations. The official involved worked at the Dutch consulate general in Istanbul and was partly in charge of regional work, according to a ministry statement. The spy allegedly gathered military intelligence on the Turkish forces' operation against the Kurdish militia YPG.
According to TV channel A Haber, the spy was allegedly looking for relations between Turkish authorities and Islamic State extremists to blacken Turkey with propaganda, his nickname was the 'Afrin spy of the Netherlands'. The spy was alleged to be a top ranking official, with former spells in Afghanistan. The spy only known by initials "A.Z", asked informants for very detailed information including but not limited to; the number of troops of the Free Syrian Army group that cooperated with the Turkish army in the Afrin operation; what types of weapons they had; personal information of the pilots; the place of production of ammunition and the location of the headquarters of the Turkish drones. The spy was apperantly followed for some time, as he had been using strategic ways of trasport, including switching on public transportation, as is standard in solo spy missions. Upon arrest, the spy used his diplomatic passport and was set on a plane back to the Netherlands. The Dutch MOD refused to comment to newspaper [[AD].
|WION - Dutch military intelligence warned the American intelligence service, CIA, last year about an alleged Ukrainian plan to blow up the Nord Stream pipelines three months before they were hit, Dutch public broadcaster NOS reported on Tuesday without specifying a source.|
In June 2023, a Die Zeit, ARD and NOS report by current affairs program Nieuwsuur revealed the US Central Intelligence Agency warned Ukraine not to blow up the pipeline. The Americans did so after they had received an alarming report from the Dutch Military Intelligence and Security Service or MIVD. That agency had heard about Ukrainian plans for an upcoming attack from a source in Ukraine. The report mentioned that "The planned sabotage in June was cancelled three months before it did go through, but in September the pipeline was still blown up. The scenario was nearly identical to that exposed by the MIVD three months earlier." Dutch media reported that - according to insiders - the Dutch Minister Defence Kasja Ollogren, and Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Minister Wopke Hoekstra of Foreign Affairs, were informed by the MIVD and subsequent CIA briefings.

|Netherlands/Deep state||“The Dutch, according to secret documents, are an important partner of the NSA, together with Germany, France and Norway as 'Third Party Country'. This puts the Dutch only one step below the other 4 Anglo-Saxon countries the US directly trades info with in their Five eyes-program.”||Huub Modderkolk||2014|
|Netherlands/Deep state||“A year earlier, Dutch crime bosses, Klepper and Mieremet were arrested by police. In their car machine guns and hand-grenades were found. When the EOD discovered that none of the granades had serial- or production numbers, the MiVD was alerted. The MiVD suspected that the grenades were from a depot that was hidden in the forest of Scheveningen near The Hague, containing 40 metal boxes with pistols, machine guns, revolvers, hand-grenades and explosives. It was raided in the 1980s by thiefs. They replaced the boxes with fridges, causing the theft to be only noticed years later as metal detectors found nothing during the inspection. (...) Klepper and Mieremet were sentenced to 16 months in jail. Both were assassinated years later.”||Menno van Dongen||September 2007|
