UK will have news laws to deal with foreign interference

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans on giving security services more powers to stop foreign interference in Britain, states a report from The Times newspaper.

Johnson’s government is preparing to place a new counter-espionage legislation, which is likely to include new laws to maintain a “register of foreign agents”, similar to the approach taken by the United States and Australia.

Non-compliance will result in either imprisonment or deportation.

The development comes in the wake of a long-anticipated report by the British parliament’s intelligence and security committee findings that Russia had tried to influence a separate referendum in 2014 when voters in Scotland rejected independence.
