If you are new to these pages, please read an introduction on the structure of a cable as well as how to discuss them with others. See also the FAQs

Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:
  • The top box shows each cables unique reference number, when and by whom it originally was sent, and what its initial classification was.
  • The middle box contains the header information that is associated with the cable. It includes information about the receiver(s) as well as a general subject.
  • The bottom box presents the body of the cable. The opening can contain a more specific subject, references to other cables (browse by origin to find them) or additional comment. This is followed by the main contents of the cable: a summary, a collection of specific topics and a comment section.
To understand the justification used for the classification of each cable, please use this WikiSource article as reference.

     B. (B) THE HAGUE 01903 
 
Classified By: RSO JOHN HUCKE, REASONS  1.5 (B) AND (D). 
 
1. (SBU) Dutch National Coordinator for Security and Public 
Safety contacted the RSO on 07/30 and advised that the 
incident had actually occurred on 07/26 and not 07/27 as he 
originally told the embassy.  As an aside he stated he would 
determine why he wasn't informed until the evening of 07/27. 
From other sources we now believe the delay occurred at the 
lowest level of law enforcement and that the Coordinator 
contacted us shortly after the report actually came to him. 
 
2. (C) LEGATT Brussels met with the controlling prosecutor 
and the Police in Rotterdam this morning and afternoon. 
Subsequent to these meetings LEGATT responded to the embassy 
and briefed the Security sub committee of the EAC. There has 
been a marked improvement in information sharing regarding 
this case.  The prosecutor instructed the Police to keep the 
LEGATT informed. Accordingly there has been a stream of calls 
doing so. While the flow is somewhat fragmentary, important 
developments are being reported, virtually in real time. The 
two subjects have been closely monitored and were arrested 
separately, one this morning and the other this afternoon, 
both without incident. Two, as yet unidentified, associates 
were also arrested. LEGATT reports the Police are searching 
two houses and two vehicle as of 1710 hours.  One house is 
the residence of the subject XXXXXXXXXXXX, the 
ownership/occupancy of the other hose is currently unknown. 
It is know that the subjects were followed to this location 
yesterday.  One vehicle is presumably the Black Peugeot 205, 
NL Tag TY 73 HK, used in this incident. Police advise that an 
Uzi SMG was found at the other residence.  The Prosecutor has 
authorized continued detention of all of the subjects based 
on the recovery of a firearm.  LEGATT anticipates additional 
calls as further evidence is uncovered. 
 
3. (SBU) RSO had the vehicle  description and tag number run 
in the RSO's Amsterdam/The Hague Surveillance Detection Team 
database with negative results. Post managment and other 
interested embassy elements have been updated on 
developements through 1900 hrs.
