US Citizen for Espionage Activities Expelled

A citizen of the United States named Wu Jianming Friday was expelled from China Friday by the state security department of south China's Guangdong Province.

Sources at the Ministry of the State Security said that Wu was employed by the intelligence agency of Taiwan, and conducted espionage activities on the Chinese mainland many times, seriously jeopardizing the national security of China.

Because he confessed to his crimes and disclosed his accomplices' criminal activities, Wu received light punishment, and the Chinese state security department decided to expel him from China, sources noted.

Wu, born in 1951 in North China's Hebei Province, went to the United States in 1989. He became a U.S. citizen in 1996.
