Suspected Russian spy from Germany’s Intel agency allegedly had access to secrets stolen by allies


MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A member of the German foreign intelligence agency BND, arrested this week on suspicion of passing secrets to Russia, had access to sensitive data collected by allies, reported the media.

The federal prosecutor’s office identified the individual as Carsten L. and said he was arrested in Berlin on Wednesday for allegedly sharing classified information with a Russian intelligence agency in 2022. He faces charges of high treason.

German magazine Focus quoted intelligence sources in Berlin as saying Carsten appeared to be a senior analyst with access to sensitive information harvested by allies around the world.

The secrets potentially leaked to Russia may have included data obtained by the US National Security Agency and the UK government’s communications headquarters during their extensive wiretapping operations, the publication reported.

A search was also reportedly carried out at the suspect’s home and workplace.

The latest comes after authorities in Norway detailed a similar case in November that involved a man posing as a Brazilian academic.
