The Surprising defection of Chinese diplomat Chen Yonglin to Australia sent shockwaves from Sydney to Beijing. Concerns have been raised not only from the vast Chinese spy network in the western society, but also in Australia's reluctance to offend Beijing in handling Chen's asylum application.

From Chen Yongling to Han Guangshen and, even more recently, a defector in Belgium, who exposed a long running, widespread, Chinese, industrial spy network operating in Europe.

They all chose to publicly reveal their secrets, and announce their resignation from the Chinese Communist Party. It makes people ask this question: "What's going on there?" When we come back we will have experts to analyze the fundamental reason and background of these defections.

Analysts say that the Chinese government has so far succeeded in keeping the it's internal conflict isolated and specific, so that people's anger for now remains centered on their gripes against local officials and a single cause, and not against the central communist leadership. However, the question remains, 'how long they can keep it that way, and more importantly, if the CCP would be able to bring back people's trust. When Chen Yonglin and his family were issued a permanent protection visa from the Australian government six weeks after his defection, even China's ambassador to Australia Ms. Fu Ying, admitted that granting Chen asylum in Australia would open the flood gates.
