3 Chinese Researchers arrested by FBI, United States for fraud Visa

Washington: The FBI has arrested three Chinese nationals for their Visa fraud who work for China’s People’s Liberation Army (CPLA), while fourth one is a fugitive from justice and currently staying at Chinese Consulate in San Francisco.

The four individuals Xin WANG, Juan TANG, Chen SONG and Kaikai ZHAO have recently been charged with visa fraud in connection with a scheme to lie about their status as members of the People’s Republic of China’s Military Forces, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), while conducting research in US.

The Executive Assistant Director for National Security, John Brown twitted as, “The United States welcomes students, academics and researchers from across the globe. Today's’ announcement shows the extreme lengths to which the Chinese government has gone to infiltrate and exploit America’s benevolence. In interviews with members of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in over 25 cities across the U.S., the FBI uncovered a concerted effort to hide their true affiliation to take advantage of the United States and the American People.”

The Chinese Embassy didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
