Wolfgang Warnke

Wolfgang Warnke, born in 1944 in Göttingen, was a West German citizen. In 1975, he tried to help two East German men escape via Bulgaria to Yugoslavia. He was betrayed by a Stasi informer and arrested by the Bulgarian police.

After four weeks in the central Stasi prison in Berlin-Hohenschönhausen, he was brought back to Sofia where he had to serve a sentence of one year and six months for "illegal man trade."
