As reported by the US Department of Justice, a 27 year-old Chinese national named Ji Chaoqun has been arrested for “Allegedly Acting within the United States as an Illegal Agent of the People’s Republic of China”.
According to sources within the FBI, an anonymous “high-level” intelligence officer of the Jiangsu Province Ministry of State Security (JSSD) had been in contact with and supplying Chaoqun with directives to retrieve biographical intelligence on (8) scientists and engineers, a few of which are known US defense contractors.
The intended aim of the JSSD seems to have centered on recruitment of the aforementioned targeted group of engineers and scientists.
Chaoqun was enlisted within the US Army reserves as an E4 Specialist under the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) program about the time of his arrest. The 902nd Military Intelligence Group is said to have assisted authorities in burning Chaoqun as a spy of China.
And the spy-game continues…
