Hao Feng Jun who abandoned his post in China, where he worked for the branch of a security service known as 6-10, set up specifically to wipe out the Falun Gong spiritual movement, defected to Australia with government documents stored on his mp3 player.
If authentic, the documents appear to back claims made by former Chinese diplomat Chen Yonglin, who says China has a network of 1000 spies operating in Australia.
Would any of the measures in this article have helped the Chinese govt to repress Jun and these documents? It seems doubtful.
Chen's application for asylum in Australia was rejected and he was advised to apply for the protection visa, which is being considered.
