China's spies colonizing Australia

Nick Squires:

Australia is being turned into a "political colony" of China, a Chinese defector said yesterday.

Yuan Hongbing, a former law professor at Beijing University who was imprisoned for his pro-democracy views, is the fourth Chinese defector to surface in Australia in the past month.

He backed allegations by a senior Chinese diplomat who has also sought asylum that Beijing has a network of up to 1,000 informants, collaborators and agents in Australia.

The spies were aiming at Chinese dissident groups and were being used to influence political thought "to turn Australia into a political colony of China", Prof Yuan told Australian Broadcasting Corporation radio.
