A German spy currently standing trial in Munich is accused of betraying state secrets, an allegation that emerged after his wife discovered he was having an affair with a male translator -- and potentially leaking him classified documents.
Known in court only as Anton K., the spy reportedly began the affair in 2005 when he was posted in Kosovo by the German foreign ministry. He was working for the German secret service -- Bundesnachrichtendienst -- to set up a network of informants.
According to London's Telegraph, he is accused of allowing 29-year-old Macedonian translator Murat A. access to classified documents. It is also alleged that the translator intended to pass those documents along to an organized crime gang in Macedonia.
