Export U.S. Defense Information to China - Fun for the whole family!
Information Week is reporting a story involving a family of five, who await a hearing for charges of conspiring to export U.S. defense information to China.
Chi Mak, 66, of Downey, Calif., was an engineer with Power Paragon, a Navy contractor. He allegedly collected technical information about U.S. warship technologies, and then he and his wife, Rebecca Laiwah Chiu, copied it onto CD-ROMs. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, another family member then allegedly encrypted the defense data in preparation for a "surreptitious delivery" to the People's Republic of China. A report from the DOJ contends that Chi Mak received ''task lists'' that requested specific defense-related information, including information on Naval research into nuclear-powered submarines.
The sad fact is there are many, many more incidents like this happening that go unnoticed.blog comments powered by Disqus
