Chinese Execute Researcher Accused of Spying for Taiwan

with one comment

A Chinese medical researcher and businessman was executed Friday on charges of spying for Taiwan, his family said.Ran Chen, who has Austrian citizenship, said her father’s execution by gunshot was confirmed at 5 p.m. via the Austrian embassy in Beijing.
“Today, our beloved father, Wo Weihan, was executed,” a statement from Chen and her sister Di Chen said. “His life was taken from him before he or our family could say its last goodbyes.”
(…) Human rights groups and diplomats from the EU, Austria and the United States had appealed to China on Wo’s behalf, contending that he did not receive a fair trial and was given an overly harsh sentence.
(…)
Wo was accused of passing data on missile guidance systems and other sensitive information to a group linked to Taiwanese intelligence agencies. Taiwan and mainland China have been divided amid civil war since 1949.

  1. What a sad story…

    I think that once we begin to learn what has REALLY been happening in China, our blood will go cold. But, thank you for bringing the story forth – we MUST learn about what is happening, no matter how bad.
