According to the Associated Press (via Berlin), a German-Italian woman has been charged with espionage on suspicion of being an informant for Chinese intelligence for several years, German prosecutors said on Monday.
Federal prosecutors say Klara K. is the wife of another suspect, Dr. Klaus L., who was arrested on suspicion of espionage last month following an indictment that they filed at a Munich court in May. The indictment against Klara K. was also filed in May.
The indictment for Klara K. says she is accused of supporting her husband’s alleged spying activities since 2010. The couple is accused of regularly passing information to Chinese intelligence ahead of or after state visits or multinational conferences until November 2019.
