Dutch journalist Daniel Verlaan was able to connect to a virtual meeting of European Union defense ministers.
This is reported by a number of European media.
Verlaan discovered on Twitter a photo posted by the Dutch Minister of Defense.
The picture showed part of the password for entering the video conference. The journalist was able to take advantage of this to infiltrate the conference.
The footage shows how some of the representatives of the EU countries greeted the journalist with laughter, and the head of EU foreign policy Josep Borrell asked if he knew that the conference was secret.
“Yes Yes. I'm sorry. I am a journalist from the Netherlands. I am very sorry that I am interrupting your conference, ”said reporter Daniel Verlaan.
The journalist was threatened with criminal prosecution. Then he quickly left the video chat, apologizing for the intrusion.
