Germany Jails Closeted Gay Spy (And His Foreign Translator-Lover-Conspirator)

The former German spy known only as Anton Robert K (pictured, right), who was outed as a gay and a traitor in 2007 by his wife who discovered his same-sex affair with his Macedonian translator, has been found guilty of revealing state secrets. The 43-year-old faces 27 months in prison, while his translator-slash-lover Murat A. (left) is looking at a 14-month run.

Prosecutors said the lover had been allowed to read classified documents as well as the agent’s laptop during bedroom encounters in 2007 and 2008. The court heard that Murat A, who was connected to organised crime and a foreign spy service, sought to sell the information, though no proof of this was presented at the trial. The pair were also found guilty of filing fraudulent expense claims worth €14,700 (£12,500).

Anton and Murat remain romantically involved.

      I won’t watch it. German porn tires too hard with their plots and it’s hard to follow.

      Proof that love makes us do stoopid stuff.Great idea for a *book *play *movie *!

      My guess is that that whole spy career is probably over, so they have time in prison to get the first couple drafts done & start looking for a publisher.

      I cant help but wonder all the same, what would have happened if the spy was working for CIA or other US intell agency?
      This story may never have come to light.
