Gary Hughes and Tom Allard: Fresh from the Secret Force, a spy downloads on China

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

Amid secret passwords, mysterious faxes and last-minute arrangements to protect him from the alleged Chinese spy network he once worked for, the asylum seeker Hao Fengjun emerged from hiding to talk of the Secret Force.

This force, the 32-year-old Chinese police intelligence analyst says, runs spies in Australia and other Western countries.

Addressing media in Melbourne yesterday, Mr Hao – the second Chinese security official to defect in less than a week – said there were three levels of agents working for the Secret Force: the professional spies, who graduated from police college and were paid to travel overseas to collect intelligence “in all areas”; “working relationship” agents, who acted as businessmen and targeted foreign business groups; and “friends”, who infiltrated foreign countries and became friendly with both Chinese and Westerners.
