The CCP’s comprehensive infiltration into Western society is alarming for democratic countries.
Taiwan military experts remind that when politicians from various countries come to mainland China for organ transplants of unknown origin, the CCP will use it as a threat against them.
Beijing is advancing its espionage system to achieve political interference in democratic countries and create a favorable environment for the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Yu Zongji, former dean of the School of Political Science and War at Taiwan National Defense University, said that with the development of social media and information technology, modern intelligence and infiltration work has become more and more far-reaching, making prevention work more difficult.
Yu said that even comprehensive laws to protect elections would not suffice against China’s infiltration programs.
He believed Beijing uses Russia’s “mixed warfare” model to target democratic countries with its infiltration programs. The country exploits all means, from flexibly navigating between open and transparent, legal and illegal activities to infiltrate nations.
Yu took the former Taiwanese major general Lo Hsieh-che, who was charged as a communist spy in 2011, as an example. Hsieh-che was recruited when he was in Thailand as a military attache in 2004.
The Epoch Times previously reported that the Taiwanese general was hooked by a female spy and large amounts of money offered by China. Through screening information from Hsieh-che’s stolen mobile phone, Yu said that Beijing knew women could be a weakness to him and exploited it.
It was not until the U.S. intelligence system discovered and reported that the national army cracked the espionage case.
The world has come to know that Beijing coerces unwilling spies through baits such as money bribes and prostitution scandals besides brainwashing propaganda.
But Yu warned that there is one other program: its bank of organ transplants from unknown origins. When politicians from various countries have critical illnesses and cannot wait long to obtain organs, they may opt for those from China—another weak link Beijing would exploit.
University teachers and students are also the key targets of China’s espionage attempts. Yu said that at least 5,000 Taiwanese students apply for internships in mainland China every year. After coming back, many of them have their ideas affected virtually.
Yu took the civil war between the Kuomintang and the Communist Party as an example. The most crucial reason for the failure of the Kuomintang was that many Communist spies were installed inside. The communist party recruited many spies from their youth. One of them is Chinese secret lurker Shen Anna, the most important stenographer of President of the Republic of China Chiang Kai-shek. Chen was a member of the CCP.
Because Chen silently handed over various high-level notes from meetings and a large number of classified documents to the CCP, the Kuomintang’s five campaigns against the regime and its three major campaigns all failed.
