A Changhua County businessman was on Thursday sentenced to a three-month prison term for contravening the National Securities Act (國家安全法).
The Taipei District Court said that Fu-Mei Scissors and Tools Manufacturing Co chairman Huang Chiung-tun (黃炯墩) was recruited by Chinese intelligence officers after he in 2000 established a factory in the country.
The sentence can be commuted to a NT$90,000 fine.
The court filing showed that Huang was recruited to gather information on Falun Gong and the Democratic Progressive Party members, and military installations in Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
