Germany: Government 'aware' of 'secret services from Egypt' operating in country

During a regular federal news conference held in Berlin on Friday, a press spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior, quoted the government's constitutional protection report, saying that the authorities are «aware that there are also secret services from Egypt operating in Germany.» «In Germany the Egyptian international intelligence service and the national security service are in operations with the goal of knowing more about opposition figures living in Germany, such as members of the Muslim Brotherhood, or for example other Egyptian figures like members of the Christian Coptic communities,» quoted spokesperson Steve Alter. German authorities are currently investigating suspicions over an employee of the government's press office having worked for years for an Egyptian intelligence service. «You can be sure that such a case will also be evaluated internally and as soon as there are any results you will be informed,» said Martina Fietz, a deputy Government spokesperson.
