Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Foreign spies face prosecution and deportation under new laws”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Foreign spies operating in Britain will be prosecuted and deported under new laws to protect the country from hostile states.

The Queen’s Speech on May 11 will reportedly be used by the Prime Minister to announce a bill outlining measures to protect Britain from the likes of Russia and China.

It will mandate that all individuals working on behalf of foreign governments in the country will have to register their presence - not doing so will become a criminal offence, The Times reported.

Intelligence agencies have warned that under current laws, foreign spies are immune from the law unless they are caught acquiring official secrets. (Pictured, flag of the Chinese Communist Party)

The Official Secrets Act, which is intended to protect the United Kingdom from espionage, will be updated so it can be used against anyone attempting to undermine Britain’s interest from abroad. (Pictured, GCHQ headquarters in Gloucestershire)
