British falsely accuses Chinese of being "spies" in the British Parliament Wang Wenbin: Some people may have watched too many 007 movies
2022-01-14: [Article Link] According to the foreign media, the British Military Intelligence Division has recently claimed that a Chinese lawyer “exercises political interference” on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party in the British Parliament. In response, Wang Wenbin, the spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that China had always adhered to the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries and that there was no need for, and would not engage in, so-called, interference.
“Someone may have seen more than 007 films, creating too many unnecessary associations.” Wang Wenbin claims that it is irresponsible to make obsessive and threatening statements based on one’s subjective assumptions. China hopes that the relevant British officials will refrain from making unsubstantiated statements, let alone “China’s Threat doctrine” in order to achieve unprovoked political objectives.
According to BBC 13, citing information from MI5, Christine Ching Kui Lee, a long-time lawyer in the United Kingdom, “established contact” between China and current members of Parliament and those who would like to run for membership in Parliament, and stated that his donations to politicians came from China.
According to public sources, Li was the founder and president of the United Kingdom’s “China Politics Project.” In 2006, Li and a group of like-minded people launched the British Chinese Political Participation Project. The aim was to raise Chinese citizenship, encourage Chinese to participate actively, and ensure that the Chinese’s voice is valued by British society, making politics part of Chinese society, and that Chinese are no longer a silent group.
