Spanish spy 'endangered state security' by selling data to Russia
The daily was quoting a Madrid court which ordered that Roberto Florez, a former agent of the secret service CNI, must remain in custody without bail conditions.

The CNI had earlier said that Florez' spying activities had not affected the security of Spain, the European Union or NATO.

Florez is in jail near Madrid on charges of handing confidential information over to a foreign power between 2001 and 2004.

Documents seized in his Tenerife home reportedly contained information on procedures and structure of the CNI, identities of its agents and a letter offering to sell such data for the price of 200,000 dollars (145,000 euros).
