ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

REF: THE HAGUE 01903

Classified By: RSO JOHN HUCKE

1. (S/NF) The date of this incident is now in question. ORCA
reports that the liaison service reports the incident as
having taken place on Monday July 26. A very senior member
of The Hague Police told the RSO this afternoon that the
incident occurred on Monday and the Israeli RSO maintains
that the incident occurred on Monday vice Tuesday, per a
member of his staff who cites the Royal Military Police
Detail as their source. The RSO recontacted the National
Coordinator for Security and Public Safety who originally
provided the information to the embassy. In response to the
RSO's query he replied he was informed at 2100 hours 07/27
and when he received the written report on the morning of
07/28 it had been written 07/27/2004 at 1300. RSO advised him
that two elements of his government were reporting the
incident on the 26th vice the 27th. The Coordinator advised
he was out of the office and would recheck and advise RSO on
Friday morning.

2. (C) (SENSITIVE SOURCE REQUIRING PROTECTION) On 07/28/2004
a member of the Dutch National Police (KLPD) faxed the
Brussels LEGATT the names and bio data of the two individuals
involved in this incident along with 3 Dutch Mobile Phone
Numbers associated with the pair and requested FBI record
checks. Brussels LEGATT shared this information with RSO The
Hague. The LEGATT now believes this fax might be considered
an unauthorized disclosure by Dutch Prosecutors if they did
not specifically direct the Officer to make this query, hence
the request the source be protected along with the method the
information was transmitted. The fax stated that the subjects
were arrested on Tuesday the 27th.,""when making a video of
the Israeli embassy. Examination of the video tape showed
there was also footage of the embassies of the United States
and England"". LEGATT reported no record on subjects or phone
numbers. RSO COMMENT - This is the first, and so far only,
mention of the British embassy. The British embassy is not on
the route provided by the source of the original report and
while close to the US embassy would not be visible from any
portion of the route reported so far. RSO does not believe
these individuals were arrested in the normal U. S. sense of
the word, they were detained in what might be called a field
interview or traffic stop since a traffic violation was cited
as justification for the stop.

3. (SBU) Subject One: XXXXXXXXXXXX, Somalia residing at Alberding Thijinstraat
16, Rotterdam, NL.

4. (SBU) Subject Two: XXXXXXXXXXXX, Saudi Citizen, DBOP
Oct. 13, 1977 Saudi Arabia.

5, (S/NF) This information was provided ORCA for traces.

6. (SBU) AM CON GEN Amsterdam reports no record in Class.

7. (SBU) DHS Attach Rotterdam Container Security Initiative
conducted TECS checks with negative results.

8. (SBU) In reftel RSO reported the deduction the that
Subject One was a resident of Utrecht and the investigation
was centered there. That deduction is now in question as the
bio data indicates the subject is from Rotterdam. The Dutch
National Terrorism Prosecutor is located in Rotterdam and
will supervise the investigation where ever it is centered.
