Spies for China

Below is part of an article that appeared in www.washingtontimes.com regarding a Southern California resident being one of four who were arrested on charges of spying for China.---------

A second case involving China included the arrest yesterday in California of a former Boeing engineer who was indicted on charges of economic espionage and acting as an unregistered Chinese agent.

Dongfan "Greg" Chung, 72, of Orange, Calif., was a former Rockwell International engineer until the company was bought by Boeing in 1996. A naturalized U.S. citizen, Mr. Chung held a secret clearance and worked at Rockwell and Boeing facilities in Downy, Calif., and Huntington Beach, Calif., respectively, court papers show.

He is charged with providing Boeing proprietary information on the space shuttle and U.S. military aircraft and helicopters to China beginning in 2002.
