Chinese Spies In Australia

[Media Source*]

(Earth Times) Two top-ranking Chinese officials have defected to Australia and are seeking political asylum in that country. Chen Yonglin, a first secretary in the Chinese consulate-general at Sydney and Hao Fengjin, an officer with China's internal security agency have also alleged that China has around 1,000 secret agents operating on Australian soil.

Although this may sound alarming, most nations have spy networks in virtually all of their friends back yards (if not their enemies as well). It would be in China's interest to find out what is going on with Australia, especially regarding the possession of Taiwan. Australia is one of China's larger trading partners (along with the U.S., Philippines and Japan) and if a war broke out in the Asian hemisphere, China would want to know whether or not Australia was willing to fight a war half way around the world.

Attorney-General Philip Ruddock more or less confirmed that the that Australian authorities are investigating allegations of a Chinese spy-ring operating in Australia, "The difficulty for me in relation to these matters is I can not talk about ongoing activities in which our security agencies are involved. It compromises them. Traditionally we do not speak about them. But it would be naive to believe that matters that are reported on are not matters that the organizations that work in this area would not be aware of and wouldn't act on," Mr. Ruddock said.

China of coarse is denying the legitimacy of these accusations (but would any nation acknowledge them?) although it seems Australia is remaining cautious. If China were infiltrating Australia, the Aussie's would probably have figured that out by now and this "public revelation" would be nothing more than confirmation of what they already know.
