AMSTERDAM – The anti-terrorist unit DSI – the special intervention service -
Is facing difficulties. This national unit was established last year and is already facing a shortage of personnel. Employees are also leaving the service because they are not being deployed enough.

The DSI consists of specialists from the defence department and police. It was set up after the difficult arrest of two members of the Hofstad group in The Hague in 2004. A number of members of the arrest team were seriously injured in the incident.

The national police force, under whose auspices the DSI operates, admits there is a shortage of staff, but does not want to confirm whether employees have left the service.
