Senior shipbuilding executive in China arrested for selling military secrets to the CIA

The most recent espionage case involving China and the US has surfaced, this time in China where a senior executive with the Chinese state-owned China Shipbuilding Industry Corp (CSIC) is accused of “gross violation of laws and party discipline,” by Chinese oversight bodies. Although the oversight bodies have not released details, it is suspected that the accused may have supplied classified information on aircraft carrier designs, on which he worked extensively, to the CIA. The carrier is China’s first to be built domestically, a distinction that has come with increased levels of importance for the Chinese government and increased interest for the U.S. and other foreign powers.
