Original charges against Chi Mak et al have been dropped. Government’s petition to hold without bail has been denied.
It seems the prosecution have lied on so many things, it’s beginning to smell like another Wen Ho Lee…Shame on us America
The conviction of “conspiring to export U.S. defense technology to China” carries up to 35 years in prison. Now, I certainly don’t know all the fact of this case, and I don’t claim to be anything resembling a legal expert. I’m just wondering:
Why does a conviction for stealing and planning to give away military secrets, including advanced submarine propulsion design information, only bring up to 35 years?
