Multiple international news outlet today have confirmed the existence of a list of nearly 2 million Chinese Communist Party members that contains many hundreds of thousands of names of individuals who live and work in the West, including at top defense contractors, medical research and supply companies, financial institutions, and other critical roles throughout the United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia.
In the United Kingdom, and potentially the United States, The Daily Mail confirmed that Rolls Royce, HSBC, Jaguar Land Rover, Boeing, Airbus, French defense contractor Thales, HSBC, Standard Chartere, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline all employ members of the CCP.
Meanwhile, The Australian confirmed that the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ), the second largest bank in Australia, has at least 23 CCP employees.
Interestingly, ANZ told The Australian that it does not prohibit its employees from joining political parties or groups, despite the CCP requiring its members to swear loyalty to the Communist Party and its leadership and be willing to give their life for the Party.
The list was “extracted from a Shanghai server by Chinese dissidents” and whistleblowers in April of 2016, and was then “leaked in mid-September to the newly-formed international bi-partisan group, the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China” who then provided it to The Australian, The Daily Mail in the United Kingdom, Der Standaard in Belgium, and a yet unnamed publication in Sweden.
Earlier, National File reported that The Daily Mail “reveals that pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and AstraZeneca – both involved in the development of coronavirus vaccines – employed a total 123 party loyalists.”
The Daily Mail also noted that while is no direct evidence these CCP members, who swear loyalty to the Communist Party and its leadership above all else, have engaged in espionage, experts agree that this would be incredibly unlikely.
This comes after documents leaked to Rebel News in Canada confirmed the existence of Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) troops in Canada, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invited the PLA to conduct “cold weather training” exercises at CFB Petawawa in Ontario alongside Canadian forces.
