THE security service MI5 has accused China of bugging and burgling UK business
executives and setting up “honeytraps” in a bid to blackmail them into
betraying sensitive commercial secrets.


A leaked MI5 document says that undercover intelligence officers from the
People’s Liberation Army and the Ministry of Public Security have also
approached UK businessmen at trade fairs and exhibitions with the offer of
“gifts” and “lavish hospitality”.

The gifts — cameras and memory sticks — have been found to contain electronic
Trojan bugs which provide the Chinese with remote access to users’ computers.
