USA ⋅ A former US military intelligence officer has been arrested on suspicion of espionage for China. The Justice Department said on Monday that the 58-year-old had tried to provide military information to China.
He received hundreds of thousands of dollars for that. When the FBI arrested him, he was on his way to the airport to travel to China. The man who speaks Mandarin and Russian had the approval for the highest secrecy level for years.
This year, a former CIA secret service has been charged with conspiracy to espionage for China, and another former intelligence official is being tried for a similar offence.
