Taiwan Military Officers Suspected of Spying for China; China Increasing Disinformation Campaigns

SINGAPORE — Taiwan detained three active-duty officers and a retired Air Force officer suspected of spying for China, the Central News Agency (CNA) in Taipei reported. This case illustrates the degree of Beijing’s espionage activities on the democratically governed island.

The former officer retired from the military in 2013 and began doing business in China, where he was hired to set up an espionage ring, the semi-official media outlet stated, without mentioning how it obtained the information.

Prosecutors suspect he recruited six officers and was compensated with an amount between NT$200,000 and NT$700,000 via a shell company. He and three officers serving in the Air Force and Navy were nabbed in the southern city of Kaohsiung; the three other active officers were freed on bail.
