German prosecutors have indicted a Pakistani man on charges of spying for an Iranian intelligence agency.
Federal prosecutors said Monday that the 31-year-old, identified only as Syed Mustufa H. due to German privacy rules, was in contact with the unnamed spy agency since 2011.
In a statement, prosecutors said the man began spying on the former head of a group that promotes German-Israeli relations by July 2015 at the latest.
He is alleged to have received money in return for passing on information obtained about the ex-head of the German-Israeli Society.
The suspect faces up to five years imprisonment if convicted of espionage.
