professor from Hokkaido University, it was learned on Friday from sources familiar with bilateral ties.
The professor, who is in his 40s, was taken into custody in Beijing, with the authorities saying he “violated domestic laws”, indicating that he may have been suspected of spying, according to the sources.

Since 2015, at least 13 Japanese citizens have been detained in China on various charges including espionage. All of them are civilians, making the latest case involving a national university professor, equivalent to a public servant, the first of its kind.
The professor previously worked for the National Institute for Defence Studies in the Japanese defence ministry.

A number of other foreign nationals have been held in China, particularly after a counter-espionage law took effect in 2014 and a national security law in 2015.



I think his previous job can't lie

ovember 1, 2019 – Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers and U.S. Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez for the Middle District of Florida announce the return of an indictment today of four individuals, including two Chinese nationals, an active-duty United States Navy officer, and his wife, on charges relating to a conspiracy to unlawfully smuggle military-style inflatable boats, with Evinrude MFE military outboard motors, to the People’s Republic of China. The Navy officer and two other defendants have also been charged with conspiring to violate firearms law, and the Navy officer has been charged with an additional firearms-related offense and with making false official statements.

The four defendants charged in the indictment are:

Fan Yang, 34, a naturalized citizen of the United States and Lieutenant in the United States Navy residing in Jacksonville, Florida; Yang Yang, 33, wife of Fan Yang, and a naturalized citizen of the United States residing in Jacksonville, Florida; Ge Songtao, 49, a citizen and resident of the People’s Republic of China; and Zheng Yan, 27, a citizen and resident of the People’s Republic of China.

The defendants were arrested on Oct. 17, 2019, and are currently detained.

All four defendants have been charged with conspiring to submit false export information and to fraudulently attempt to export articles from the United States. Additionally, Yang Yang, Ge Songtao, and Zheng Yan have been charged with causing the submission of false and misleading information into the U.S. Automated Export System, and fraudulently attempting to export seven vessels and eight engines. If convicted for conspiracy or for the submission of false export information, the charged defendants each face a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison. If convicted on the attempted-smuggling charge, the defendants each face a maximum sentence of 10 years in federal prison.

Fan Yang, Yang Yang, and Ge Songtao are charged with other offenses as well. All three have been charged with conspiring to violate laws prohibiting an alien admitted under a nonimmigrant visa from possessing a firearm and prohibiting the transfer of a firearm to a nonresident. Fan Yang has also been charged with making a false statement to a firearms dealer, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years’ imprisonment, and with making false official statements in his application for a security clearance, which carries a maximum penalty of five years’ imprisonment.

An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.

This case was investigated by the FBI, the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security; and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michael Coolican and Heather Schmidt, Senior Trial Attorney, Counterintelligence and Export Section, U.S. Department of Justice.

Pretty telling when Western intelligence officials are saying their main focus is separating facts from fiction.

If it was a legitimate spy with high value intel, no one would be speaking about fiction.

What this means is that even at this early stage, Australian intelligence knows some of the claims made are fantasy aka BS lies; and that they are currently trying to work out what else are also lies.

Come on Wolfie, I won't even give this "story" any legitimacy by continuing with this pathetic MSM ploy at painting a black portrait of China's foreign policy!

I mean, yeah, its not like the likes of US, UK and OZ never ever have spies in other countries and with standing orders to kill if necessary, or not!

I think it is a possible that this person might be a spy, but he is most likely not an important asset. Otherwise they wouldn't have paraded him around like you said. When China executed dozens of CIA assets no one from the press knew who those people were specifically.
 
This kid be like, "China operates in every country and kills anyone with impunity! The CCP has ordered many assassinations in Australia! Please let me live here so I can be safe!" LOL If he believed his own words, he'd be too scared to do this or run anywhere because according to his own claims, he and his family would be dead in a few years no matter where they go, especially Australia.

Is there anything to substantiate his claim at all that he worked for the CCP? Is there anything about him that is inconsistent with a random street cockroach making up lies?

That whelp is 27 years old and his family is living abroad. Something tells me China didn't entrust him with its deepest, darkest secrets.
