Russian Physicist Suspected Of Espionage

The Prosecutor General’s Office in Germany suspected the Russian physicist who worked in Germany and the Netherlands of espionage and filed a criminal case against him. This is reported by the Spiegel magazine.

      The 29-year-old scientist called “Ivan A.” by the newspapers worked at the German Max Planck Institute of Science of Light in Erlangen in 2009-2011, there he studied quantum optics and nanophotonics, and also participated in the development of super-fast quantum computers. In 2013 he took a job at the Technical University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands. The German law enforcement agencies picked up the physicist’s trail during another investigation.

      According to Spiegel, a diplomat working in the Russian Consulate General in Bonn was expelled from Germany on suspicion of espionage. During surveillance over the diplomat it was revealed that he regularly went to Aachen once a month and met with Ivanov who came to the Netherlands. In July 2014 the physicist and his wife were detained at the airport in Dusseldorf on suspicion of espionage. Their phone and laptop were seized, the detainees were interrogated and then released.
