Ransom Money Found on German "Hostage"

Little Green Footballs relays a Reuters dispatch:

Part of the ransom money alleged to have been paid by the German government to win the freedom of Iraq hostage Susanne Osthoff last month was found on Osthoff after her release, the German magazine Focus said on Saturday.


The serial numbers on the bills matched those used by the government to pay off Osthoff’s kidnappers, the magazine said.

In other words, Osthoff was a collaborator, not a hostage. I do hope the Germans prosecute her and at the least get back the money found on her.
