Zhen Zhou Wu, 46, made multiple visits to the US to buy components used in radars and missile systems which he then exported to China via Hong Kong using forged papers to evade the US arms embargo to China imposed after the 1989 Tiananmen Square killings.
He is the second Chinese to be sentenced in America this week for illegally transferring military technology to China after a 66-year-old former B-2 Stealth Bomber engineer was jailed for 32 years for selling military secrets to be used in the development of a Chinese cruise missile.
By 2007 more than 25 per cent of Chitron’s illegal exports were being passed to a number of state-owned Chinese corporations charged with the procurement, development and manufacture of electronics for the Chinese military.
“This defendant and corporation violated US export laws and compromised our national security for more than a decade,” said US Attorney Carmen Ortiz.
