On 21 February 2012, the Dutch Minister of Security and Justice signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Washington D.C. with the World Bank for greater cooperation in fighting international fraud and corruption. The cooperation will focus on misconduct which may constitute a serious crime under national legislations or a sanctionable offence under World Bank Group rules and policies. In parallel, the Minister also signed a letter of intent with the US Secretary of Homeland Security to strengthen cyber security cooperation between the US and the Netherlands.
