THE HAGUE, June 5 (Itar-Tass) —— Netherlands Foreign Ministry employee Raymond P, tentatively identified by the media as Raymond Poeteray, suspected of spying for Russia gained 90,000 euros in the transfer of 450 classified documents from January 2005 through March 2012, a prosecutor said at the Hague court on Tuesday.
The 60-year-old diplomat was arrested in April and charged with transferring secrets to the German couple Andreas and Heidrun Anschlag for seven years. The couple was charged with spying for Russia in fall 2011. The investigation of their case pointed to Poeteray. Dutch prosecutors believe he might have been a part of the spy network in the United States and Europe.
The prosecutor said that the search of the suspect’s house revealed confidential documents on memory cards of his notebook. The information could be described as state secrets, he noted. For instance, it contained a plan of the Dutch embassy in Chile.
The suspect was arrested in order to prevent further spread of state secrets. The Anschlag couple and their son will be summoned to the court as witnesses.
Raymond P. has been a counselor of the consular department of the Dutch Foreign Ministry for the past four years and worked in Hong Kong, Indonesia and South Korea earlier.
