New Zealand MP Jian Yang denies being a Chinese spy
A New Zealand MP has denied allegations he is a Chinese spy, saying he has been the target of a racist smear campaign. It is alleged that Chinese-born Jian Yang, 55, was investigated by New Zealand's intelligence services for his links to Chinese military academies. Jian Yang, an MP for the country's ruling centre-right National party, condemned what he called "Defamatory statements". Prime Minister Bill English defended his party's MP, and told reporters he was aware of Jian Yang's background. New Zealand is due to hold a general election on 23 September.
