US Attorney General Merrick Garland has accused China of wanting to undermine the US judicial system. Investigations against two Chinese are ongoing.
According to the US judiciary, Chinese secret agents are said to have tried to spy on investigations into the telecommunications giant Huawei. US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday announced investigations into two Chinese for obstruction of justice and money laundering. According to the indictment, He Guochun and Wang Zheng are said to have tried to bribe legal documents relating to US investigations into a “global telecommunications company” from China.
Among other things, the two agents paid $61,000 worth of Bitcoins to a US government official whom they believed had recruited him as an informant, the US Department of Justice said. However, the US representative was “a double agent” under the supervision of the US Federal Police FBI.
Data fits the case Huawei exactly
Huawei’s name is not mentioned in the indictment documents. However, several US media reported, citing informed circles, that the “global telecommunications company” is the smartphone manufacturer and the world’s largest provider of 5G network equipment. The data mentioned in the indictment documents also fit the Huawei case exactly.
