Briton arrested in Germany for ‘spying for Russia’

A British man suspected of spying for Russia in exchange for cash has been arrested in Germany, say federal prosecutors.

The suspect, identified only as David S., who worked as local staff at the British Embassy, “on at least one occasion passed on documents he acquired as part of his professional activities to a representative of Russian intelligence.”

The federal prosecutor’s office says in a statement that “the accused received a cash payment in an unspecified amount in return.”

The suspect is believed to have been spying since November 2020 “at the latest.”
