Suspected Spy Katia Zatuliveter Studied English Under Mike Hancock MP For Four Years

by | 19th, October 2011

KATIA Zatuliveter, 26, ala Ekaterina, says that she did indeed have a affair with allegedly philandering Mike Hancock, the married LibDem MP for Portsmouth South. She also had, reportedly, flirtations with a Nato wonk and a Dutch diplomat.

She is accused of being a Russian spy. The British Government want to deport her. She is fighting their right to do so. She says the Government has got it wrong. She sayss he is no spy. Mike Hancock says he passed on no secrets. Katia has been making her case to the panel sitting on the Special Immigration Appeals Commission.

Katia was 21 and a student at St Petersburg University when she met Mr Hancock. She was invited to “chaperone” him round the city. On day one, she tells the group:

“He told me he wanted to sleep with me. He went up to his room and he brought a CD and some money… He made it very clear from the beginning he was interested in me. He tried to kiss me. He was very charming during this time. I was not getting much attention from men during this period.”

She says she rejected his music, his money and his advances.

She then went to meet him in Moscow with the intention of practising her English before an exam.

Jonathan Glasson, for the Home Office, gives it the huge sideways eyes and chips in:

“The real motivation was so you could develop a sexual relationship wasn’t it?”

No, sir. It was the Uganda, sorry, Moscow discussions, sir.

She replied:

“I could prepare to do an exam in St Petersburg or I could go and spend a few days with a native speaker.”

One class led to another and before long Katia had been studying under Mr Hancock for four years.
