Communist Spy’s Story Has More Plot Holes In It Than A Bad James Bond Movie: Labour’s Spokesman

Labour has rejected the claims by a former Cold War spook during the Cold War years as entirely false and likened the account to a “bad James Bond movie”.

The comment came after Jan Sarkocy, a former agent with the Czech secret police in 1980, claimed that he had recruited the Labour leader, at the time a backbench MP, as an informer and exchanged money for intelligence.

A spokesman for Jeremy Corbyn said Mr Sarkocy’s story “has more plot holes in it than a bad James Bond movie”.

“As Svetlana Ptacnikova, director of the Czech security forces archive, has made clear, Jeremy was neither an agent, asset, informer nor collaborator with Czechoslovak intelligence. These claims are a ridiculous smear and entirely false.” the spokesperson told The Independent.

“The former Czechoslovak agent Jan Sarkocy’s account of his meeting with Jeremy was false 30 years ago, is false now and has no credibility whatsoever. His story has more plot holes in it than a bad James Bond movie.” the spokesperson added.

Last week, The Sun reported, under the headline Corbyn and the Commie spy, that the former agent, whose spy name was Jan Dymic, said Mr Corbyn was named Agent Cob and met with him in the House of Commons.

Later, Mr Corbyn’s team replied: “Like other MPs, Jeremy has met diplomats from many countries. In the 1980s he met a Czech diplomat, who did not go by the name of Jan Dymic, for a cup of tea in the House of Commons.”

The Leader’s spokesperson said Mr Corbyn neither had nor offered any privileged information to this or any other diplomat.

“During the Cold War, intelligence officers notoriously claimed to superiors to have recruited people they had merely met. The existence of these bogus claims does not make them in any way.”
