Christensen was Casement's bodyguard and guide, and was approached and offered £5,000 and immunity from the law in writing, by the British Ambassador, Mansfeldt Findlay, if he would betray his employer. He apparently didn't betray Casement.
Christensen appears to have been the homosexual consort of Casement. and is believed by some authors to have betrayed him to the British; and indeed Christensen may have been a British plant from the start, but I have not seen that established.
