ANU Senior Fellow markgkenny says “there are foreign governments that are continuing to interfere' and 'wish to do Australia harm”.

ANU Senior Fellow Mark Kenny says “there are foreign governments that are continuing to interfere" and "wish to do Australia harm”. A sleeper agent running a spy ring has been uncovered by the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation as they revealed foreign interference is at an all-time high with more overseas agents operating inside the country than at the height of the Cold War.

Mr Kenny told Sky News ASIO Director-General Mike Burgess revealed "the level of threat is extremely high” and “in terms of volume of activity he says it is unprecedented and that is quite significant”. Mr Kenny said “security agencies will always tend to see the risk” but it would be “no surprise” if China was “perhaps principle among the countries that are operating state sponsored operations of intelligence in Australia”.
