Warning: Christine Lee

A lawyer accused by MI5 of being a Chinese state spy has previously revealed how her life and career were shaped by fighting back against bullies in a boarding school in Belfast.

Christine Ching Kui Lee, described by MI5 last week as being involved in “political interference” in Britain, moved to Northern Ireland from Hong Kong with her family in the mid 1970s when she was 11 or 12.
