Plagiarism row German minister in Afghanistan visit
Berlin – German Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg spent the night with troops in Afghanistan, his ministry announced Thursday, in the midst of a media storm over claims of plagiarism in his doctoral thesis.
The defence ministry did not previously announce the trip for security reasons, and would not give details about the remainder of his visit to the region.
The previous day, Guttenberg – a rising star in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government – was forced to defend himself against allegations of plagiarism in his Phd.
He has also faced criticism over a string of controversies within the military, including the accidental killing of a German soldier in Afghanistan and that soldiers’ mail in Afghanistan was illegally opened or lost.
The minister was not accompanied by journalists on his current trip.
