According to the latest decision of the Dutch court, although the country’s government cannot spy on its citizens over the Internet, it still can use information stolen from them by the US spooks.
The local court has recently ruled that intelligence services re able to receive bulk information that might have been obtained by the American NSA via mass data interception programs, despite the fact that collecting information that way is against the Dutch law.
A civil case was launched by a coalition of defense lawyers, privacy advocates and journalists – all of them were trying to sue the Dutch government and asked for a court order to stop the agencies from obtaining information from foreign intelligence outfits that could not be obtained under the European and Dutch law.
The plaintiffs claim that the mass data collection programs of the National Security Agency of the Unites States violate human rights that are guaranteed to everyone by both international and European treaties including the European Convention on Human Rights.
Nevertheless, the court decided that under Dutch law, the local intelligence services can collaborate with the NSA, which in turn is bound by American law that doesn’t conflict with the human rights convention privacy requirements.
The court pointed out that given that raw information is shared in bulk, less stringent safeguards are required than would apply when the information is examined and used. In addition, the court believes that there would be a big difference between receiving information and using it for individual cases.
This court decision was delivered on general grounds, i.e. the actions of the state were assessed in general. The suggestions are that the result could be different when some individual lawsuits or complaints were filed. Of course, the lawyers who brought the case didn’t like the explanation. The called it “incomprehensible” and issued a statement saying that innocent citizens’ privacy rights should prevail over the interests of surveillance agencies. They also explain that since the information exchanged in bulk involves data on many innocent people, more stringent safeguards are required. The lawyers claimed that they would appeal the ruling.

|Regardless of what this Dutch court says, the N.S.A. is not effectively bound by American law. In fact, they seem to be above the law.|
|Far beyond being above the Law when they circumvent it almost daily,they were declined by Google when they requested that the company hand over its data and so the hacked it from Google servers outside of the USA which seems to legitimize the act in their books,yet when a hacker does the same thing it is misuse of the Internet and they are arrested and incarcerated,One law for them and one for Us,If a postman intercepted or withheld your mail he would be arrested but this is being done to our electronic mail daily,The great and good USA are the biggest lying,cheating,two faced corporate led law breakers in the world and as for Snowdens leaks which do the country no harm other than public embarrassment they should reflect upon what they themselves have done in regard the violation of the citizens rights.The Citizens rights which as Gitmo shows are another fallacy,just as Internet freedom,privacy and security.|

|Most would like freedom for online surfing and haven't any problem just within cable or ISP and Government to help us just in case some intruders could be fraud or crimes sometimes. Also, Dutch small country have very rich companies known if that can happen because many ones accused them of spy drone satellite around world like Russia; in short, jobs until far from them can be nice but unknowing and certainly new for all for ever...|
|As for the citizens of the US standing up to Big Brother and his modus operandi in collecting surveillance data, voting in Presidential & mid-term elections will have little impact in affecting the behavior of No Such Agency or Never Say Anything. All they need is a rubber stamp from a sympathetic judge.|

Al those NSDAP freaks are there anyway and not to mantion where the Bail out money realy goes you would be like W.T.F. but yeah USA creaps me totally out there like the bully on the playing veld always try controlling the game.Happly the will not manege against the rest of planet earth simply put||
