Officer Canadian intelligence Jeffrey DeLisle confessed to spying for Russia. He said this at the court in the county of Halifax, which began in March of this year. Previously caught red-handed DeLisle did not plead guilty.
As a spy told the court in 2007, he went to the Russian Embassy in Ottawa and proposed to implement a furtive military intelligence. The next four years he gave Moscow hidden materials — up to that time, while in December 2011, was detained. For a month he was paid about $ 3 million, writes the CBC.
In 2009, DeLisle decided to break the case with Russian special services, but in return received a photo of his daughter, made hidden camera, according to the materials of the case. Soon after that the officer was sent to the "business trip" to Brazil. There DeLisle met with a representative of the GRU which invited him to head the service agents across Canada. DeLisle agreed, and received a $ 50 thousand.
Part of the funds was given to him in cash, and that ruined the Canadian. When the spy landed at the airport in Halifax, customs officials wanted to find out the origin of the large amount. In response DeLisle stated that likes to travel with the media. This aroused suspicion, and an unusual passenger notified the military, and they have launched an investigation.
Jeffrey DeLisle charged with breach of trust and the transfer of the latent disk imaging foreign organization. He faces 5 years in prison to indefinite detention.
The main materials are declassified DeLisle concerned so called system of "five eyes", the agreement concluded between the intelligence services of the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia and of New Zealand. A source close to the investigation said that the amount of hidden information that the spy had time to transfer of, can be compared with the archive Wikileaks.
