KFOR Officer Linked to Spy Boyfriend

A Swedish military officer is being investigated on suspicion that she leaked classified information about NATO’s peace-keeping operations in Kosovo to an alleged Serbian spy she was dating.

The man was working as a UN interpreter in the Serbian Province and its claimed the Swedish woman sent him emails containing details about the KFOR Force, which she was serving in.

The alleged spy has only been identified as ”Z” and has disappeared since being questioned by NATO officials last year, and it’s not clear who he was suspected of working for.

The Swedish military said it didn’t have enough evidence then to fire the officer, who claims she didn’t know the man was a spy, but a statement says they have now re-opened the case after receiving new information.

Sweden is not a member of NATO but contributes peace-keeping troops to Kosovo.
