Operators of the CERN project in Switzerland have been accused of treachery and espionage by Chinese Government officials. The charges levelled at the project included secretly researching a weapon designed to eliminate vast areas of the People's Republic of China.
A spokesperson for CERN denied all of the claims, and said Chinese officials were acting on illusions of their own making. They emphasised that the work carried out at CERN is for the general good of humanity.
China has previously accused CERN of spying on their Swiss embassy, and even poisoning their drinking water. We await further developments in this chapter.
