Tom Tugendhat

On Tuesday, British Security Minister Tom Tugendhat stated that China had shuttered reported “police service stations” at locations throughout the UK, and that an inquiry had uncovered no criminal activity by the Chinese state at these locations.

“The Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office has told the Chinese Embassy that any functions related to such ‘police service stations’ in the UK are unacceptable and that they must not operate in any form,” Tugendhat stated in a written statement to parliament.
