NBC: A former British marine accused of spying for Hong Kong authorities in Britain has died in unexplained circumstances, police said Tuesday.

Matthew Trickett, 37, was found by police late Sunday afternoon at Grenfell Park in Maidenhead, a town west of London, after a report from a member of the public. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

“An investigation is ongoing into the death, which is currently being treated as unexplained,” Thames Valley police said.

That's potentially equivalent to the Novichok poisoning. Will the UK gov still make a big deal out of it if it's the Chinese behind it?

The British Foreign Office summoned Chinese Ambassador Zheng Zeguang after the spying charges were announced last week. In a statement, it said it had told Zheng that the “recent pattern of behavior directed by China against the U.K.,” including cyberattacks and the issuing of bounties on Hong Kong democracy activists living in Britain, was “not acceptable.”

Not acceptable? But appears it is acceptable. Seems normal.
