Why was the Romulan spy put down by Tomalak, and banished from the Romulan Empire? Was he not acting on behalf of the Romulans? On orders?

Jarok wasn't a spy. He legitimately did defect to try and stop a war. The only thing was the whole invasion story was a fabrication to test Jarok's loyalty after he had spoken out against Romulan expansionism.

This is a pretty good Xanatos gambit really. If Jarok was loyal, they'd be sure of it. But since he isn't they get a chance to ambush the Federation and rid themselves of a disloyal voice all in one stroke.

Gotta love Romulan politics.
