Head of Danish military intelligence suspended after misleading the oversight board

The Danish military intelligence service (Forsvarets Efterretningstjeneste or FE), which is also responsible for signals intelligence, has been accused of unlawful activities and deliberately misleading the intelligence oversight board.

After the oversight board (Tilsynet med Efterretningstjenesterne or TET) received information from a whistleblower, the head of the FE, Lars Findsen, and three other senior officials of the intelligence service were suspended.

Here, I will provide a translation of the press release of the oversight board, as well as details from its earlier reports, showing that there were problems at the FE for years. An overview of the international cooperation between the FE and foreign partner agencies provides a context for what likely went wrong at the Danish service.
