Taipei, Dec. 31 (CNA) A Taiwanese businessman was found guilty of working with Chinese intelligence and handed a three-month jail sentence or payment of a fine by the Taipei District Court Thursday, though the case can still be appealed.

The man, surnamed Huang (黃), was found guilty of violating Article 2-1 of the National Security Act, which stipulates that individuals are prohibited from collecting confidential information or developing an organization for another country, such as China, to serve its military or for other purposes.

According to the Taipei District Prosecutors Office, Huang moved to Ningbo, China in 2000, and befriended local government officials there in the hope of advancing his business career.

He was recruited to arrange meetings with Taiwanese government and military personnel, with the goal of helping collect information on Taiwan's ruling Democratic Progressive Party and the Falun Gong religious movement.    [FULL  STORY]
