58e FD Column: Evaluatie inlichtingenwet spionnenwaakhond is even zorgwekkend als voorspelbaar

Deze column staat in Het Financieele Dagblad van 13 december 2018. Volg deze link voor mijn eerdere FD columns.

Niemand benijdt minister Ollongren van Binnenlandse Zaken (D66) om haar hoofdpijndossier, de Wet op de inlichtingen- en veiligheidsdiensten 2017 (Wiv). De Wiv is controversieel vanaf het eerste parlementaire debat in 2016. D66 stemde tegen de Wiv in de Eerste Kamer in 2017, maar kreeg het misbaksel alsnog bij de formatie in de maag gesplitst. Ollongren en haar partij kregen de ondankbare opdracht van de coalitiepartners de Wiv met een paar halfbakken ‘waarborgen’ door het laatste raadgevende referendum in de parlementaire geschiedenis te loodsen. Ondanks de historische tegenstem in maart jl., moest Ollongren onder grote politieke druk de wet, met nog een paar waarborgen meer, alsnog doordrukken.

Vorige week evalueerde de toezichthouder op de inlichtingendiensten, de CTIVD, dat al die waarborgen in de praktijk niets voorstellen. Hoe blijft de minister nog geloofwaardig als zij binnenkort de Kamer zal moeten overtuigen dat alles, ooit, echt, goed komt met de Wiv? Met nog meer waarborgen? Voor de ogen van de kiezers voltrekt zich een tragikomisch politiek schouwspel waarin onze privacy structureel wordt geschonden door een wet die wij zelf afserveerden.

De CTIVD constateerde op 4 december jl. een ‘hoog risico’ op onrechtmatig handelen door de geheime diensten AIVD en MIVD. ‘Essentiële waarborgen voor de bescherming van de rechten van het individu missen, geheel of gedeeltelijk, hun invulling in de praktijk’. ‘Daardoor is effectief extern toezicht door de CTIVD nog onvoldoende mogelijk.’ Oftewel, de toezichthouder kan geen toezicht houden, omdat de waarborgen uit de wet in de praktijk – soms zelfs geheel – niet bestaan.

Yes, Minister

Zulke conclusies zijn alarmerend, maar helaas ook voorspelbaar. Om een intrinsieke privacyinbreuk alsnog langs het parlement te loodsen, schildert een bewindspersoon principiële bezwaren weg met ‘waarborgen’, die in de praktijk weinig tot niets voorstellen. Een wet haalt dan met hakken over de sloot een kritische coalitiegenoot over de streep, die de privacyinbreuk uitruilt tegen een ander dossier. Slechte wetgeving is het gevolg, net als kritische evaluatierapporten en uiteindelijk rechters die jaren later de wetgeving in hoger beroep verpulveren.

Vanaf 2005 stonden de kranten bol van de Europese Richtlijn Bewaarplicht Telecomgegevens, die opslag verplicht van de bel- en internetgegevens van iedere burger voor opsporingsdoeleinden. De burger moest niet zo zeuren over privacy, want de wet bevatte ‘adequate waarborgen’. Het regende kritiek in evaluatierapporten: principiële bezwaren waren niet weggenomen door de waarborgen, die in de praktijk niets voorstelden omdat onze data veel te lang werden bewaard, of zelfs nooit waren verwijderd. Vanaf 2010 vernietigde iedere nationale rechter die daartoe de kans kreeg de nationale implementatiewet van de EU-richtlijn uit 2006. En in 2014 verbrijzelde het Europese Hof van Justitie in de nu legendarische uitspraak Digital Rights Ireland niet alleen de waarborgen, maar de gehele EU-richtlijn. Het was de eerste keer dat het EU-hof een EU-richtlijn niet op onderdelen, maar in z’n geheel vernietigde. Acht jaar lang heeft de EU-richtlijn de privacy van 500 miljoen Europeanen geschonden.

Voor de ogen van de kiezers voltrekt zich een tragikomisch politiek schouwspel waarin onze privacy structureel wordt geschonden door een wet die wij zelf afserveerden

Zo zijn er talloze variaties op ditzelfde thema. In 2010 bleken de geheime diensten de notificatieplicht na het aftappen van burgers nooit na te leven. Reactie van destijds minister Hirsch Ballin: schaf de waarborg dan maar af. Minister Opstelten herhaalde die poging in 2014 en noemde de waarborg een ‘administratieve last’. Een paar dagen geleden pleitte het OM zelfs voor het opzijzetten van een waarborg uit de grondwet bij het briefgeheim: toestemming vragen van rechter-commissaris om een brief te openen kost ‘te veel tijd’. Zodra een bewindspersoon voor, tijdens of na een parlementair debat over waarborgen begint, is het dus oppassen geblazen.

De schrijvers van de britse tv-satire Yes, Minister begrepen dat bijna veertig jaar geleden al. In de hilarische BBC-serie is de gewiekste topambtenaar Sir Humphrey steevast zijn minister Jim Hacker te slim af, omdat hij als geen ander het mechaniek van de politiek begrijpt. In de aflevering ‘Big Brother’ (1980) wil Humphrey een ‘National Integrated Database’ invoeren – een soort Wiv. Om de database alsnog door te drukken, tovert hij al snel de waarborgentruc tevoorschijn. Waarborgen klinken goed, hebben in de praktijk weinig om het lijf en stellen de overheid toch in staat burgers te bespioneren. Zodra de rechter iets te zeggen krijgt, is de minister alweer vertrokken.

Creatieve behendigheid

Ollongren moet nu tegen wil en dank de inlichtingendiensten in het gareel houden om haar geloofwaardigheid te behouden. Doet ze dat goed, dan zal zij op grote weerstand stuiten van haar topambtenaren en de geheime diensten en verdient ze waarschijnlijk weinig credits bij de kiezer. Doet ze het niet goed, dan heeft zij binnenkort weer iets uit te leggen aan de Kamer en kiezer, die de politiek na het referendum allang niet meer vertrouwt.

Het vergt creatieve behendigheid om vastgeroeste Haagse patronen te doorbreken. In vier seizoenen Yes, Minister, is minister Hacker (what’s in a name) juist in de privacyaflevering voor één keertje zijn topambtenaar de baas. Door handig gebruik te maken van de media, zet de Hacker zijn ambtelijk apparaat voor het blok en weet hij triomfantelijk de privacy van de Britten te beschermen. Ollongren zou eens tijd moeten maken voor een dosis Britse humor. Allicht doet het haar humeur, hachje en bovendien onze grondrechten op dit hoofdpijndossier goed.

  10. Rei Dalio, the founder of the Bridgewater Joint Fund, known as the “father of the hedge fund,” said that capitalism is no longer applicable to most Americans. He said that the widening gap between the rich and the poor is creating a turbulent environment that has a disturbing resemblance to the economic and social unrest in the 1930s.

  11. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time, he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour” (1 John 2:18).

    “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

  12. The company added that negotiations with competitors aimed to improve exhaust technology without involving any “secret agreement.” Volkswagen said it will investigate the allegations and respond later.

  13. Hiya! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct
    this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!

  14. The other is to pay for the renovation of the old house, or to overthrow the reconstruction, to build a good government inspection and acceptance, and then subsidize the renovation of the dangerous building of 15,700 yuan.

  15. I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to
    be precisely what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content in your case?
    I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write regarding here.
    Again, awesome web site!

  16. While many were indeed designed and planned for ahead of the imposition of sanctions, Russia is clearly making a big effort to modernize its armed forces, especially its air force, and moving past older Soviet platforms. The Su-35 is a good example of such efforts.

  17. Hey! This is my first comment here so I just wanted
    to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading
    through your posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums
    that go over the same topics? Thanks!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
