Former Royal Marine Matthew Trickett’s Death Not Suspicious in Hong Kong Espionage Case

British author¬≠i¬≠ties have con¬≠firmed that the death of Matthew Trick¬≠ett, 37, a for¬≠mer Roy¬≠al Marine accused of espi¬≠onage for Hong Kong, is not con¬≠sid¬≠ered suspicious. 

Trick­ett was found dead in a park near his res­i­dence on May 19, 2024, just days after appear­ing in court on charges relat­ed to spying.

A Home Office post-mortem exam¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion con¬≠clud¬≠ed no foul play in Trick¬≠et¬≠t‚Äôs death. Thames Val¬≠ley Police are prepar¬≠ing a file for the coro¬≠ner‚Äôs inquest, and spe¬≠cial¬≠ist offi¬≠cers are sup¬≠port¬≠ing Trick¬≠et¬≠t‚Äôs fam¬≠i¬≠ly dur¬≠ing this dif¬≠fi¬≠cult time.

Co-Defendants Remain in Court

The arti¬≠cle fur¬≠ther reports that Trick¬≠et¬≠t‚Äôs co-defen¬≠dants, a Bor¬≠der Force offi¬≠cer, and a retired police offi¬≠cer, appeared in court on the same day Trick¬≠et¬≠t‚Äôs death was announced. They face charges under the Nation¬≠al Secu¬≠ri¬≠ty Act, intro¬≠duced in 2023 to counter for¬≠eign espi¬≠onage with¬≠in the UK. 

The accu¬≠sa¬≠tions include ‚Äúassist¬≠ing a For¬≠eign Intel¬≠li¬≠gence Ser¬≠vice‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúengag¬≠ing in pro¬≠hib¬≠it¬≠ed con¬≠duct, name¬≠ly, forc¬≠ing entry into a UK res¬≠i¬≠den¬≠tial address.‚ÄĚ
