In a joint meeting of the Mayor, Public Prosecution Office, Chief Royal Military Police and the Police of the municipality of Haarlemmermeer (in consultation with the NCTV) it was decided to take additional security measures at and around Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
On the 11th and 12th of May, the exercise VITEX 2016 took place in Amersfoort, the Netherlands. Government bodies and Transport System Operators from a large number of EU member states engaged in discussion with each other, based on a cross border scenario concerning energy shortage. The exercise was organized by the National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism (NCTV) in the Netherlands, and financed from the Internal Security Fund (ISF) of the European Commission.
Dick Schoof is the National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism and Patricia Zorko is the Deputy National Coordinator Security and Counterterrorism.
There are, however, no specific indications that terrorist networks are actually preparing to carry out an attack in the Netherlands. The threat level will therefore be maintained at ‘substantial’, level 4 in the modified threat level system.
