From AFP News Agency.
British security service MI5 has warned the UK Parliament an alleged Chinese agent has attempted to interfere in UK politics. The agency says Christine Ching Kui Lee – who has law offices in London and Birmingham – "established links" for the Chinese Communist Party with current and aspiring MPs. She also gave donations to politicians including Labour’s Barry Gardiner, who received over £420,000 from her over five years. Gardiner says he has reported all donations to MI5. China dismissed the warning by British security services, saying it was the result of watching "too many 007 movies".
