“In an important revelation of the way of action and penetration of foreign services in our country, the National Intelligence Service proceeded” according to its announcement E.Y.P. In the announcement it is stated that: “Specifically, investigations systematically carried out by the EYP, following the information it collected, proved that the alleged “Maria T.”, who in recent years claimed to be Greek and was active as a photographer and owner of a craft store and knitting in Athens, with Greek citizenship and identity since 2018, in fact is the foreign national “Irina AS”who operated in our country under “deep cover”.

The countdown to the revelation began with the detection of a third country’s attempt to access details of deceased Greek citizens, an internationally recognized practice of a country’s Intelligence Services to create the of a special class of spies nicknamed “illegals”.

The “illegals” they are recruited and trained by the Services of a specific foreign country, with the aim of being placed in target countries, then undertaking espionage for their country. To protect their true identity, they use “deep cover”, which is created by falsifying individual documents and using certificates derived from the details of stillborn babies or people who have passed away. From the moment of their placement abroad, the “illegals” they live and behave based on the fabricated story that has been created for them in order to protect their mission.

The profile and activity of “Maria T.” refers directly to the special category of “illegals”.

The case that has just been revealed by the EYP, is typical of the way of thinking and action of the specific Services as well as for building the identity and profile of “T.” they worked systematically for many years with appropriate exploitation of persons, procedures and agencies, so that finally the foreigner “Irina” lived and was recognized as the Greek “Maria”, deceiving even the people closest to her in Greece, who obviously did not know her real identity ID card.

It is obvious that the action of “T.” would not be limited to the Greek territory, since as an EU citizen, he could travel and work in several European countries. That is why the success of the EYP has a dimension that goes beyond national borders and concerns all Western countries in general.”
