On August 30th, French Defense Minister Florence Parly said that a French senior military officer had been arrested under investigation for “serious security breaches.”

“What I can confirm is that a senior officer is facing legal proceedings for a security breach,” Parly said.

“We have implemented all the necessary safeguards,” Parly said.

According to Europe 1 radio this referred to French lieutenant colonel based in Italy and stationed with NATO is suspected of having transmitted sensitive documents to the Russian secret services.

The name of the officer is undisclosed.

A Europe 1 radio unnamed judicial source confirmed that a senior officer had been indicted on charges involving “intelligence with a foreign power that undermines the fundamental interests of the nation.”

He is being prosecuted for “delivering information to a foreign power” as well as “collecting information harming the fundamental interests of the nation with a view to delivering them to a foreign power” and “compromising the secrecy of national defence”, the source said.

The military official was arrested by DGSI intelligence service as he was about to leave for Italy at the end of his holidays in France and is being held at a prison in Paris.

Finally, according to yet another unnamed source, the official speaks Russian and was seen in Italy with a man identified as an agent of the GRU, the Russian military intelligence service.

The arrest comes a week after US authorities arrested a former Special Forces officer for sharing his unit’s activities with Russian intelligence.

According to prosecutors, the Green Beret serviceman, who had been stationed in Germany and Azerbaijan, “thought that the United States was too dominant in the world and needed to be cut down to size.”

In June, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said a cyberattack on the Bundestag that resulted in sensitive information being siphoned off the network was part of Russia’s “strategy of hybrid warfare including cyber disorientation and fact manipulation.”

Well the French government are traitors to the interests of the French people, so why not. I don’t blame him for trying to undermine Atlantism.

There is lack of frog resources in France. If I were French which I am not, but if I were, I would also blame the French Government and ask for foreign help to freedom.

You can’t speak for another person
Maybe by being in NATO command he has seen some sick things happening that have changed him radically.
We humans are much more fragile than we tend to believe in our vanity

We can call everything anything.

The traitor clause is personified by the displaced dwarf in the film Sparta. He wants to join the admirable men, but is rightfully dismissed as being in the way in a tough battle.
He gets hateful, betray his fellowmen and native land, and cause his own many thousands death, but he gets his 30 shekel and a strong position at his new lord.
This is treachery and rightfull condemned to death by law.

Then you have the rightfull cause personified by Snowden, Manny, where you for moral and ethical reasons do whistleblow important information about a sick group of you own, info which can prevent many thousand/million peoples unjustified death.
This is morally rightful to do so, but being a messinger is a dangerous job and risks jail.

Both can in principle be called spy in the legal or military system.
