  • Description

    A further incident in the East-West battle of spies and defections - at a press conference in Bonn Sept 15 Press representatives were issued with duplicate copies of documents brought to West Germany by 32-year-old Captain Guenter Malinowski, who deserted from the East German Army to cross the frontier last month.

    Photostats of documents showing how East Germany was preparing its Army for an aggressive war included a leaflet calling on West Germans to surrender and co-operate with the "liberators" of the occupying East German Arm. There were also passes to enable West German soldiers to surrender in safety.

    Malinowsky was a political commissar with an infantry division, and although not present at the press meeting for safety reasons, later took part in radio and television programmes.
