The trial of a secret service affair began in Luxembourg today, which had shaken the Grand Duchy politically in 2013. As a result, there were new elections, the former prime minister and ex-EU commission president Jean-Claude Juncker resigned after almost 19 years in office after a lost election in late December 2013. Juncker is invited to witness three ex-employees of the Luxembourg secret service.

That said a spokeswoman for the Luxembourg judiciary. The process is about an allegedly illegal eavesdropping action and the possible embezzlement of a CD. The public prosecutor charges the ex-intelligence officers with violations of personal rights and data protection. The trial had previously been postponed twice because Juncker had been prevented from witnessing.
