sentenced a former Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) officer last year to four years in prison for violation of the National Security Act.

In September 2015, the Taipei District Court ruled Zhen Xiaojiang (鎮小江), a retired PLA captain, guilty of setting up a spy ring in Taiwan.

Zhen, based in Xiamen, China, was found to have traveled to Taiwan frequently after he acquired Hong Kong residency in 2005.

Traveling on a tourist visa, Zhen managed to set up the spy ring by recruiting retired and active Taiwanese military officers to collect secret military intelligence, according to the district court.
