Verfassungsschutz is an absurd agency, like a (hopefully) watered-down version of the stasi. I have written about it here.
A former German intelligence agent who was also an ex-gay porn actor was on Tuesday given a one-year suspended sentence for attempting to share state secrets while pretending to be a jihadist online.
The 52-year-old named as Roque M., made headlines when he was arrested last November in what initially appeared to be a case of an Islamist mole at work in Germany’s domestic spy agency.
But he was freed in July after prosecutors dropped most of the charges, finding no evidence of an attack plot or ties to Islamist groups.
He told the court that he pretended to be a jihadist planning an attack in online chatrooms because he was bored.
