Secret Police Past

Doesn't Cramp
Style of Stasi Agent

The Files on Axel Hilpert

BERLIN -- Gordon Brown, the next prime minister of Britain, a deputy secretary of the U.S. Treasury and other grandees of global finance will convene here tomorrow at a lakeside luxury resort featuring American-style clapboard villas, rose-petal baths and tai chi classes.

Their unusual host: a longtime agent of the former East Germany's feared secret police, the Stasi.

Axel Hilpert, the resort's co-owner, rented it to the German government for the meeting of ministers from the Group of Eight leading industrialized economies. Long before the 59-year-old became a successful and well-connected property developer, Mr. Hilpert was an undercover agent, code name "Monika," decorated by both the German Democratic Republic and Fidel Castro's Cuba.
