September 12, 1985

The former security chief for the West German border police was convicted of spying for East Germany and sentenced to 5 1/2 years in prison. A state court in the Rhineland city of Koblenz found that Franz Arthur Roski, 36, had spied for the Communist state for 13 years and caused "considerable losses to the security" of West Germany. The case was not related to last month's scandal, in which West Germany's counterintelligence chief and several other government employees who defected to the East were found to have been East German spies.
