Officials from Beijing were allowed to interrogate Chinese held in Australian detention centers it was revealed yesterday, even as another defector said yesterday that China is using a vast network of spies in an attempt to turn Australia into a "political colony."

Yuan's charges came as it was reported that almost 50 Chinese people held in Australian immigration centers were put in isolation for more than two weeks last month and interrogated by Chinese government officials.

Some of the detainees were reportedly political dissidents or members of the spiritual group Falun Gong, which is banned in China.

Not much you can say about that....

No way Australia has caught up to US yet. The US would let (or help) them torture the dissidents, or render them to a 3rd country for outsourced torture. Or flush their holy texts down the toilet. Still, the Aussies get an A for effort...
