Chinese Nationals Arrested in Plot to Steal Navy Technology

Wednesday, November 09, 2005
According to an AP report, two Chinese nationals have been held without bond on charges of stealing sensitive documents on U.S. Navy warship technology and trying to smuggle them to China. A federal judge denied bond to Tai Wang Mak, a broadcast and engineering director for the Phoenix North American Chinese Channel, and his wife, Fuk Heung Li. The two allegedly conspired to take a disk containing information on U.S. submarine technology to Guangzhou, China. A hearing was scheduled for Nov. 15. The two were arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Oct. 28 as they boarded a plane to China. In Li's luggage, authorities found a disk that contained information on U.S. technology designed to suppress the noise of submarine propulsion systems, according to the report. Also charged in the case are Mak's brother, Chi Mak, a naturalized U.S. citizen from China, and his wife, Rebecca Laiwah Chiu, also a naturalized citizen of Chinese descent. All four face charges of stealing government property, aiding and abetting, transportation of stolen goods and conspiracy. Source: Associated Press
