DuPont spy case hints at Chinese connection
Communist government implicated in similar thefts
Posted Friday, March 2, 2007
China has been called the United States’ primary adversary in economic espionage.Of the three cases of foreign economic espionage brought since a 1996 law was created, two have directly implicated China.
A half-dozen more involving the less serious crime of theft of trade secrets have had a Chinese connection, but no proof that information was funneled to the Chinese government.
The recent case against Gary Younggang Min, whose guilty plea to stealing $400 million in trade secrets from the DuPont Co. was unsealed last month, certainly hints that it could be part of that trend.
