|SREL Director Patrick Heck said in January that under his predecessor the agency illegally bugged phone conversations of senior officials, including those of Juncker. The parliamentary commission said the wiretapping took place from 2004 to 2009, when Marco Mille was dismissed as SREL director after being accused of orchestrating the irregularities.|
The commission also found the SREL also ran a fictional counter-terrorism operation that was really a front to help a Russian oligarch pay $10 million to a Spanish spy.
"I did say that the intelligence service was not my priority," Juncker told lawmakers, adding, "Moreover, I hope that Luxembourg will never have a prime minister whose top priority is SREL.
So here we have the logical absurdity and the political necessity of a PM resigning for over spy-scandal - in which he himself was the foremost victim. I suspect he'll be relected which is a goood thing too.
