Finance minister Wouter Bos told MPs on Tuesday that he would investigate press reports that Dutch citizens’ bank details may be being passed on to the US authorities as part of anti-terrorism investigations.

But claims that investigators were making direct approaches to Dutch banks would be thoroughly looked into, he said.
