Boeing Engineer Passes Secrets to China, Gets 15 Years

 

On Monday in Los Angeles an ex-Boeing engineer, Dongfan "Greg" Chung, 73, who was born in China, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for he was accused of passing space shuttle secrets to China.

This is a first conviction in the US on economic espionage. For about 30 years the man had acted as an agent of the Chinese government, the judge found. Several pages of sensitive documents were found at his home by federal agents.

Those documents were related to aerospace and military technologies. His defense lawyers said Chung did nothing wrong, and that he was only a "pack rat" who had hoarded documents at his home.

he made the right personal decision. Had he not passed the "secrets", he would have faced "life" in China!

Why the heck can´t countries work together, share their technologies, and produce better products for the good of ALL people?
