British officials say security services have warned lawmakers that a suspected Chinese agent is deliberately engaging in political interference inside parliament. According to the French news agency AFP, the office of House Speaker of the House of Commons Lindsay Hoyle confirmed on Thursday that it had sent a letter to MPs after consulting with the security services about the incident. It was a mile. A spokesman for Hoyle said the speaker took the members’ security and the democratic process very seriously, so he issued the notice in consultation with the security services. The Chinese embassy in London has denied the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating “Similar, baseless allegations concerning Russia’s intelligence have been made more than once. A statement from the Chinese embassy in Washington said, “We strongly oppose any threats of corruption or intimidation against the Chinese community in the UK. The security notice named the suspected agent as Christine Ching Kui Lee and stated that she was deliberately engaged in political interference activities by the United Frontwork Department of the Chinese Communist Party. The London-based lawyer allegedly donated 5 275,000 to Barry Gardiner, a former member of the Labor Shadow Cabinet, and millions of pounds to his party.

Former Prime Minister Theresa May, whose conservatives have been accused of embezzling millions from Russian money, called on Christine Lee in 2019 to recognize her support for Sino-British relations. There is also a separate photo of Christine Ching Kui Lee with David Cameron and former Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn at a 2015 event. According to British media, the speaker’s note states that Christine Ching Kui Lee facilitated financial donations to serving and aspiring parliamentarians on behalf of foreign nationals residing in Hong Kong and China. China last year banned 10 British organizations and individuals, including Duncan Smith, for spreading lies and misinformation about human rights abuses in Xinjiang. He complained that Christine Ching Kui Lee had not been arrested or deported, only barred from entering parliament. Former Conservative Secretary of Defense Tobias Ellwood told the Commons that this is the kind of gray zone intervention we now expect from China. Gardner said Christine Lee’s son was employed as her diary manager but resigned on Thursday. In a statement, he said that all of his donations had been properly reported and that no suspicious money was attached to his office but that he had been in contact with our security services for many years.
