A British parliamentary investigator has been arrested in the United Kingdom for allegedly spying for China. He is a man of about twenty years old. He was arrested along with a second man under the Official Secrets Act. The British newspaper reported this. Sunday weather and the police confirm it.
The parliamentary investigator is said to have maintained contacts with several Conservative MPs, including the current Secretary of State for Security Affairs, Tom Tugendhat, and the president of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Alicia Kearns. Contacts with Tugendhat are said to date back to before his appointment as Secretary of State.
The arrest already occurred on March 13, but now it has been made public Sunday weather. The man in his twenties was arrested in Edinburgh, the man in his thirties in the Oxford region. The younger of the two lived for a time in China, the newspaper writes.
Searches were carried out at both men’s homes and at a third address in London. The two are currently out on bail.
Last year, British intelligence warned that a Chinese agent, Christine Ching Kui Lee, had infiltrated the British Parliament to interfere in British politics on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party.
