Taipei, May 12 (CNA) Four Taiwanese nationals — three retired noncommissioned
officers and a businessman — were indicted Friday for spying for China, according to the Kaohsiung District Prosecutors Office.
The office, which asked the Criminal Investigation Bureau and military police to arrest the suspects last June, concluded that the four men violated the National Security Act by developing a spy network and providing confidential military information to China.
One of the officers, surnamed Chen (陳), took advantage of his position at the Information and Electronic Warfare Command under the Ministry of National Defense’s General Staff Headquarters to download key information from the Air Force, prosecutors said in explaining how the spy ring worked.
