A lawyer with dual Polish-Russian citizenship accused of spying for Russia faces up to 10 years in jail, Poland’s Radio Zet broadcaster has reported.
Stanisław Sz. (full name withheld under Polish privacy laws), who had worked for a Warsaw law firm, has been accused under a law relating to "participation in the activities of foreign intelligence against the Republic of Poland," Radio Zet cited a Prosecutor's Office as saying.
Stanisław Sz. is the son of former goalkeeper for the Russian national squad who arrived in Poland in 1991 with his family.
The lawyer was arrested for three months in October 2014 by a district court.
On the same day, a Military District Court in Warsaw arrested an officer with the rank of lieutenant colonel who worked for the Polish defence ministry.
Both men are suspected of working for the GRU Russian military intelligence service, Radio Zet reported. (pk)
