DOJ Charges 13 Chinese Agents in Huawei Probe

Merrick Garland actually did something productive this week.

Charges were announced against 13 people accused of working for China in three “significant national security cases.”

According to the New York Post report, “One of the cases concerns an attempt to pressure a New York-based critic of the Communist Chinese government to return to the country; the second involves efforts to obtain secret information about the US prosecution of Chinese tech giant Huawei; and a third deals with the recruitment of spies in the US.”

Of those charges, 10 people were charged are Chinese government officials and spies.

Director Wray stated, “They’re charged in three different cases that might seem at first glance to be about unrelated issues.

“However, … each of these ways bear the Chinese government’s flagrant violation of international laws as they work to project their authoritarian view around the world, including within our own borders.”

Merrick Garland added, “[China] has a history of targeting political dissidents and critics of the government who have sought relief and refuge in other countries.”

He added, “The defendants threatened the victim saying that, ‘Coming back and turning yourself in is the only way out.’

“They showed up at the home of the victim’s son in New York.

“They filed frivolous lawsuits against the victim and his son and said it would be ‘endless misery for the defendant and son to defend themselves.’

“And they made clear that their harassment would not stop until the victim returned to China.”
