    Default Looking for China’s spies

    A BBC News special by Gordon Corera; which I note opens with:
    The US has launched a crackdown on Chinese attempts to steal secrets. American officials say the Chinese state is boosting its own companies. But in the UK there's no equivalent crackdown.

    A reasonable overview. I would argue that if the UK has been some poor in responding to Russian activity, why would we treat differently?

    Default Who is Meng Wanzhou?

    Currently under house arrest and awaiting extradition to the US, she will face charges that her company violated US sanctions by doing business with Iran and committed bank fraud by disguising the payments it received in return.

    But to say that she is the CFO of Huawei doesn’t begin to explain her importance — or China’s reaction.

    It turns out that “Princess” Meng, as she is called, is Communist royalty. Her grandfather was a close comrade of Chairman Mao during the Chinese Civil War, who went on to become vice governor of China’s largest province.

    She is also the daughter of Huawei’s Founder and Chairman, Ren Zhengfei. Daddy is grooming her to succeed him when he retires.

    In other words, Meng is the heiress apparent of China’s largest and most advanced hi-tech company, and one which plays a key role in China’s grand strategy of global domination.

    Huawei is a leader in 5G technology and, earlier this year, surpassed Apple to become the second largest smartphone maker in the world behind Samsung.

    But Huawei is much more than an innocent manufacturer of smartphones.

    It is a spy agency of the Chinese Communist Party.

    How do we know?

    Because the party has repeatedly said so.

    Default When it comes to espionage, China poses the greatest threat.

    A 'Sixty Minutes' report on Chinese spying, based on the conviction of an ex-CIA officer Kevin Mallory (awaiting sentencing). With a couple of interviews and some of the evidence produced. A DoJ official:
    So MSS is the principal intelligence agency of the Chinese government. And in rough terms it is like the CIA and the FBI put together.Their capabilities are world-class. They have cyber capabilities, they have expertise in turning people into cooperators. And they have all of the tools and expertise of a very capable intelligence organization.

    The DoJ indictment is available on:https://www.justice.gov/opa/press-re...75671/download

    Double-tapping this cautionary tale.
    US officials say China is trying to influence US policymakers, steal secrets and spy on the US government. But how? The story of Kevin Mallory, a man who seemed to lead a typical suburban life in Virginia, provides the answer.

    Default Ex-CIA agent Jerry Chun Shing Lee admits spying for China

    Does this help to explain the collapse and deaths of a CIA Humint network in China?

    Default A Sea Lamprey Waits For Them

    A short review of a new book from an Indian observer. The book being 'Chinese Spies—from Chairman Mao to Xi Jinping' by Roger Fagliot, which I see via Twitter has had rave reviews.

    I'd not heard of a 'Sea Lamprey', thankfully the author explains:
    the legendary ‘sea lamprey’, a slippery snake-like fish which blends in with the landscape, clinging to rocks, and latches on to its prey.
