China harasses former Uyghur spy in Norway

In March 2022, The Guardian reported that a former Chinese spy who escaped to Norway is receiving constant voice-message threats from members of the Chinese state. Memettursun Omer, a member of the Uyghur minority group, was trained to be a “loyal Chinese citizen” and gather information on Uyghur activists around the world. After defecting he fled to Turkey and later Norway, however his Chinese handlers found him and continued the harassment, allegedly telling him, “Wherever you can see the moon, we can find you.”
