Mueller was charged with being i agent for a foreign power" and of having "committed other crimes." The brief announcement printed n the Berlin Communist press did not disclose where the arrest took plnce. West Germany's Communist party has disclosed that it had expelled Mueller. The party charged him with suspicion of Tltotem, "betrayal oi the party in the meanest-manner . . . constant connection with the secret service of a foreign jxnv- C1 ' • . . and bringing hostile cle- 1'ients into the party and promoting them." Mueller earlier resigned his seat in the West German parliament for "pcraonal reasons."
