State Security Service
The Ministry For State Security, also called State Security Service ("Stasi"), was the notorious intelligence agency of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Contrary to many assumptions, the State Security Service was not only directed against the GDR people. Also in the Western-European countries, especially in the Federal Republic of Germany, spies operated for the Ministry For State Security. Worthy of mentioning is, among various others, the case of Gabriele Gast who spied at the foreign intelligence agency of Western Germany, the Bundesnachrichtendienst, for the GDR. In opposition, the Bundesnachrichtendienst observed the transactions and the company netting of Alexander Schalck-Golodkowski, the uppermost GDR exchange obtainer, in Liechtenstein and Switzerland. The case of soccer player Lutz Eigendorf should also be mentioned. His murdering should become a lesson for all to see, and a few Western-German spies played an important role. One of the best-known cases is this of Günter Guillaumes. Although he was uncovered as a GDR spy since May 1973 by the Western-German intelligence agency Verfassungsschutz, he remained almost another year as an advisor in the Federal Chancellor Authority ere he was arrested and German Chancellor Willy Brandt resigned. During the process of the German reunification in 1990, the US-American CIA enticed some top-spies of the State Security Service. The CIA also gathered large information about spies and their activities. Until the present time, the German government tries to receive the missing files.
