A suspected spy for Iranian intelligence who was working in the German military will on Monday go on trial in a court in the city of Koblenz.

The 51-year-old former translator and consultant for the Bundeswehr, named only as Abdul Hamid S was detained a year ago in the Rhineland region of western Germany.

According to prosecutors, he was accused of working for an Iranian intelligence service and providing information to that service.

His 40-year-old wife had also been charged as an accessory, but has not been detained by police.
