The United Kingdom’s domestic intelligence service has claimed that a woman suspected to be working with the Chinese Communist Party has attempted to improperly influence members of the UK Parliament.

Aljazeera reported that Lindsay Hoyle, the House of Commons Speaker said on Thursday, that it was discovered that the woman “has been engaged in political interference activities on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party”.

In addition, the Chinese national had engaged with legislators and facilitated financial donations to serving and aspiring Parliamentarians on behalf of foreign nationals based in Hong Kong and China.

Also, Iain Duncan Smith, a former leader of the UK’s governing Conservative Party, said on Thursday that the woman should be deported and called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government to make a statement over the case.

In February 2021, the UK expelled three Chinese spies, who allegedly posed as journalists but actually worked for China’s Ministry of State Security.

The British Government says China has sought to steal sensitive data and intellectual property, as well as interfere in domestic politics and sow misinformation amongst others.
