Spy accused Zatuliveter denies influence reason for affair with MP
BBC News - Spy accused Zatuliveter denies influence reason for affair with MP
A former MP's aide accused of being a Russian spy has denied she began an affair with her employer because she saw him as politically influential.
Katia Zatuliveter, 26, denies spying and is fighting her deportation at the Special Immigration Appeals Commission.
Government lawyers say she should be deported on national security grounds.
Miss Zatuliveter told a hearing she did not think Lib Dem MP and defence select committee member Mike Hancock was very influential: "He is a backbench MP."
Jonathan Glasson, lawyer for the home secretary, replied: "He's not just a backbench MP, though, is he? He's a member of the defence select committee."
Asked why she thought Portsmouth South MP Mr Hancock would be of interest to the Russian Intelligence Service, Miss Zatuliveter replied: "I have no idea what would be of interest to the Russian Intelligence Service.""all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.
