The detained person is suspected that Germany has handed over the secret state information to Moscow this year. A member of the German Intelligence Agency (BND) has been arrested for allegedly smuggling information for Russia.
German Law and Justice Minister Marco Bushman confirmed the information last Friday (December 25). According to the media report, the detainees are suspected that the detained person has handed over the secret state information to Moscow this year. In Berlin, he and another person were searched at home and office.
German Law and Justice Minister Marco Bushman said Russia’s espionage would take a big push if this was proved. He highlighted the need for more caution in the light of this incident.
Earlier in April, the German government expelled five people from the country on suspicion of spying Russia. Austria has also accused a Greek citizen of spies for Russia several days ago.
BND chief Bruno said his company was fully cooperating with the investigating authority to get a clear idea about the whole incident. At the same time, the overall internal investigation has begun to find evidence of the trafficking of secret information inside.
He said the federal tactics were immediately called. Carl made it clear that no information would be released during all investigations. According to the prevailing rules in Germany, it is not possible to release the entire name of the accused. It is only known that his first names came to Kirsten and the first letter of the designation.
