Complaint against PRC RC member ignored by MP Sam Tan

Immediately, she challenged me to join the RC and claimed she was a RC member who has been staying in Singapore for 15 years. Despite her claims, she further insinuated that I was ‘bias towards her because she was from China’ when in fact, she was never asked about her country of origin. I refused to entertain her nonsense to start another issue and drew her attention to pet control. Still, she continued to insist several times, again and again on the bias towards her as a PRC (in her own words), a quarrel tactic easily identifiable with her China comrades. I walked away to discontinue the tiresome talk.

PRC CHINESE SPIES AT SYDNEY UNIVERSITY

Jocelyn Chey, a former diplomat in Beijing and Hong Kong who is a fellow at the Institute of International Affairs and visiting professor at the University of Sydney, said: "It's quite clear that a large part of the business of Chinese diplomatic missions here is just keeping tabs on their citizens." Dr Chey has watched the networks become "increasingly complex" since the Chinese embassy opened in Canberra in 1973. Outside the diplomatic missions, Chinese surveillance work is mainly co-ordinated by the Ministry of State Security and several of the ministry's provincial bureaus. Surveillance and influence work is also performed by the United Front Work Department, through various business and patriotic associations, as well as two departments of the People's Liberation Army.
