18th December 2009, Comments 0 comments

The Netherlands Central Bank has reported TV channel RTL Nieuws to the police for leaking confidential documents.

Amsterdam--The channel published seven documents on its website, including a letter from a solicitor's office, containing advice to the central bank. It dealt with claims against the failed DSB bank.

The central bank says that the broadcaster may have broken secrecy rules by unveiling the solicitor's document. The other published letters were from the Netherlands Central Bank to DSB Bank.

In its defence RTL told the press that publication of the documents was in the general interest of the public. They were used for a reconstruction of events surrounding the collapse of DSB Bank in October.
