German Spy Known As Anton Robert K Jailed With His Foreign Translator-Lover-Conspirator

A German spy known only as Anton Robert K who was outed as 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. 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
