Wil van Gemert candidate for Executive Director of Europol

Minister Blok of Security and Justice firmly supports the candidacy and has shared his view in a letter to fellow European ministers. Mr Van Gemert is the current Deputy Executive Director of Europol’s Operations Department.

The work he has conducted in the past years has been widely appreciated, contributing to the further development of the Europol organisation in both an operational and organisational sense. Furthermore, Mr Van Gemert has many years of experience working in law enforcement and internal security.

The Netherlands is of the opinion that Mr Van Gemert would be a very suitable Executive Director of Europol.
