Chinese Man Accused of Spying and Recruiting U.S. Scientists

(CHICAGO) — A Chinese citizen living in Chicago was arrested Tuesday for allegedly spying, including by helping with the recruitment of U.S. engineers, defense contractors and scientists for intelligence services in China, federal prosecutors said.

But when the judge asked if he understood his rights, Ji lifted his head and said in English, “I understand.”

Through a lawyer, Laura Hoey, Ji also asked that the Chinese consulate be notified about his arrest.

Judge Mason ordered that Ji remain in custody for now, and U.S. Marshal’s agents handcuffed him and led him away.

There was no answer at a number for the Chinese consulate in Chicago on Tuesday evening.
