The Dutch ambassador to China has been suspended after reportedly carrying out a secret affair with a Chinese employee working at the embassy in Beijing.
Dutch tabloid De Telegraaf broke the story, citing diplomatic sources that claim the affair between 58-year-old ambassador Ron Keller and a local staffer had become “the talk of the embassy.” The two met several times at the ambassador’s residence and exchanged nude photographs, the popular tabloid reports.
Keller is unmarried; however, that doesn’t mean that Dutch officials aren’t concerned about who he sends dick pics to. Officials worried that the veteran diplomat had placed himself in a very vulnerable position by engaging in a relationship with an employee of the Chinese government, opening himself up to blackmail and potentially perilous pillow talk.
De Telegraaf reports that Keller is currently in the Netherlands and likely won’t return to his post in China. He had only been in Beijing for less than a year, following previous stints in Turkey, Russia and Ukraine.
Before departing to the G20 summit in September, a team of officials accompanying new British Prime Minister Theresa May were warned to take steps to protect themselves from alluring Chinese spies offering sex for secrets during their stay in Hangzhou.
This measure came in response to a 2008 diplomatic visit in which a British official was caught in a honey trap and lured into a hotel room where he was drugged and robbed of his Blackberry and half the contents of his briefcase.
