Abstract

According to Dutch law, investigating officers have to comply with a so-called ban on passage of people, in cases of concrete 'knowledge' about human smuggling, making intervention obligatory (in order to protect smuggled migrants). Nevertheless, a formal exception procedure is possible if non-intervention would be in the interest of the investigation. This exception procedure, however, is not used in practice. Based on interviews with investigating officers, this paper concludes that protection of smuggled migrants is a very important aim as such, that 'knowledge' is a complex concept as it is not always very concrete, that making this ‘knowledge’ more concrete depends on actual investigative efforts, and that - if this information is concrete - there are various ways in which interventions can take place that do not jeopardize the aims of the investigation.
