New York -Free Yemen Eye -From News – FBI
The Department of Justice today announced a number of actions against people associated with the Chinese government who are accused of violating U.S. law.
Those charged include:
Four Chinese nationals who allegedly tried to recruit American professors and other officials to act as agents of the Chinese government.
Seven Chinese nationals who are accused of targeting and harassing people living in the United States to attempt to force them to return to China.
Two Chinese intelligence officers who allegedly tried to use bribes and espionage to obstruct a criminal prosecution in New York.
The FBI supported the investigations into all three cases as part of its counterintelligence work.
At the press conference, FBI Director Christopher Wray noted that although the three cases may appear unrelated, each shows that the Chinese government is willing to run over international laws as they seek to assert their authoritarian views. “In all three of these cases, and in thousands of others, we’ve found the Chinese government threatening established democratic norms and the rule of law as they work to undermine U.S. economic security and fundamental human rights–including those of Americans,” Wray said.
