Faris K., a former police officer who was part of the security team Geert Wilders, gets a seven-month information leak cell. He said about personal security policy, such as the type of car in which he was transported.
The court in The Hague has also banned a man from holding a public office for the next five years.
The former policeman, who was officially released earlier this year, also told several women about the visit of the then American President Barack Obama. One of those women was his girlfriend.
K. did not deny the charges, but mainly called his actions "stupid" and "clumsy". He said he had no bad intentions.
- Faris K. (37) gets a seven-month prison sentence
- They may also not hold a public office for five years
- The man escaped information to several women, including his girlfriend
- OM wanted five months in prison, but the punishment was higher because of the signal to other police officers
"Such behavior is unacceptable"
The prosecutor's office had previously demanded five months in prison for men and also thought that he should not hold a public office for five years.
The Court found that a stricter penalty was necessary "because of the nature and gravity of the leak of confidential and operational information".
"This punishment also serves as a signal to other police officers in similar positions to make it clear that such behavior is unacceptable."
K. joined the police in 2003
The man has been working for the police since 2003, and in 2014 he was admitted to the then Security and Security Service (DBB, now DKDB).
He signed a confidentiality obligation after accession. Actions by K. would not lead to security issues.
