ExposedAnders Fogh Rasmussen#Lies
A major in Forsvarets Efterretningstjeneste who revealed that Anders Fogh Rasmussen had been lying about Iraq's alleged WMD's.

He was a major in Forsvarets Efterretningstjeneste (the Danish Defence Intelligence Service).

Whistleblowing

On February 22, 2004 he acted as a whistle blower leaking classified information about the FE's assessment of the possibility of weapons of mass destruction [WMD] in Iraq. The analysis of FE concluded that there was no certain information about operational weapons of mass destruction.[1] This was not aligned with the statement of Danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen to the Danish parliament that there was evidence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

Information

Frank Grevil was sentenced to four months in jail for leaking these documents.

In 2009, he received the Sam Adams Award for integrity in intelligence which had earlier been given to Katharine Gun and Andrew Wilkie.[2][3]

In December 2010 Grevil signed a declaration of support for WikiLeaks. Among others on the list were Daniel Ellsberg and Coleen Rowley.[4]
