Canada probes agent’s romance with Iranian spy target

Canada is investigating one of its anti-terrorism agents for having a year-long affair with her target, an alleged Iranian spy, an official said on Friday.

The Montreal French-language daily La Presse said a seemingly innocent text sent from a cell phone in the Ottawa region triggered the probe.

“Hey darling, I have a little something special I want to give you for Christmas. 😉 I hope that you have a great Christmas. Let’s talk soon, okay? I love you and I miss you. xxo,” it reportedly said.

The Passport Canada employee assigned to an Integrated National Security Enforcement Team was tasked with following the comings and goings of the suspect, an Iranian-born Canadian living in Montreal.

According to La Presse, she herself became the target of an internal investigation after her affair was revealed recently.
