TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Investigators raided military installations and private homes Friday looking for evidence about a Navy officer suspected of leaking confidential military information.
The officer, surnamed Hung (洪), had initially been a suspect for a completely different case, but the investigation took a different turn when military secrets were found on his computer, the Liberty Times reported.
The man served from January 7, 2011 until July 30 this year on the French-made Chengde frigate, where he was in charge of information system maintenance.
During a search of his Kaohsiung home last January, investigators found a hard drive which contained numerous confidential military data apparently copied from computers on board the frigate, according to prosecutors. [FULL STORY]
