A defector from China has reached Europe and is under the protection of a European government security service. He has information on the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) biological arms program, which he provided to the United States.

According to The Washington Times (WT), unnamed sources said the defector believes Chinese intelligence has infiltrated the U.S. government, making him careful of sharing information with the CIA and other Western spy agencies.

No other details are available yet, reports the WT.

The defector is the second one to give information about China’s biological research that has the potential for weapons utilization.

The previous defector was Dr. Yan Li-meng, who fled to the United States from Hong Kong on April 28. She plotted her escape and managed to avoid cameras and censors at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, where she had worked as a respected virologist and immunologist.

In hiding as she now fears for her life, Yan told Fox News from an undisclosed location. “The reason I came to the United States is because I deliver the message of the truth of the CCP Virus (COVID),”

Yan told Fox News, “I had to tell them the truth,” she said. “I’m doing the right thing. So I tell them that ‘don’t let me go back to China. I’m the one who came to tell the truth here of COVID-19 … And please protect me. If not, the China government (CCP) will kill me.”

In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Yan said she believes the Chinese government knew about the CCP Virus (coronavirus) well before it claimed it did.

Her research on the CCP Virus (COVID-19) was ignored by some of the top experts in the field, and she says that it cost countless lives.

After reporting her finding to her supervisor on Jan. 16, he warned her off. “As he warned me before, ‘Don’t touch the red line,'” Yan said, referring to the CCP. “We will get in trouble and we’ll be disappeared.”

“This virus actually is not from nature, it is a man-made virus created in the lab based on the very unique bat coronavirus, which cannot affect people, but after the modifications becomes a very harmful virus,” she said.

Yan also claims the co-director of a WHO-affiliated lab, Professor Malik Peiris, knew but chose to ignore it.

The State Department’s most recent report to Congress on worldwide compliance with arms-control treaties, made public June 23, claims China possessed an “offensive biological warfare program from the early 1950s to at least the late 1980s.”

There is, the report states, “no available information” to show Beijing fulfilled its treaty obligations “to destroy or to divert to peaceful purposes.”

“The United States has compliance concerns with respect to Chinese military medical institutions’ toxin research and development because of the potential dual-use applications and their potential as a biological threat,” the report said, reports the New York Post.

“In addition, the United States does not have sufficient information to determine whether China eliminated its assessed biological warfare program, as required under Article II of the [Biological Weapons] Convention.”
