What we know about the ‘gay porn star turned Islamist spy’

News this week that a member of the BfV was a suspected Islamist was already strange enough, but then both the Washington Post and Bild reported that the suspect of Spanish origin had starred in gay porn videos, found while investigators searched his home.

BfV said on Tuesday that the unidentified 51-year-old suspect is a German national who converted to Islam in 2014. According to DPA, he was born in Spain, but has long held German citizenship.

The suspect was arrested on November 17th after chatting online with a man posing as another Islamist – who the suspect didn’t realize was actually a colleague at the intelligence agency. The suspect made “Islamist remarks online under a false name”, according to the BfV. He also offered internal information during the chat.
