Former Danish military chief in prison for espionage


Former Danish military chief in prison for espionage

Copenhagen, Jan 10 (Prensa Latina) Former Director of the Danish Defence Intelligence Service, Lars Findsen, is serving time in prison on espionage charges, TV2 television channel reported on Monday.

Findsen was arrested on Dec.9 after being accused of leaking secret information that could damage national security or relations with other countries, this media outlet reported.

The defendant was relieved of his position in 2020 and, since then, Danish authorities have kept the case under strict secrecy, according to the source.

In May, the German daily Suddeutsche Zeitung and other media outlets reported that the US National Security Agency (NSA) spied on then-German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and other prominent politicians with the assistance of Denmark’s Intelligence Service from 2012 to 2014.

This body allowed the US government to have access to a special facility near this capital, from where tappings were carried out and it could connect submarine cables to Internet providers, according to the Russian news agency Sputnik.
