Ten days ago, another case of Chinese espionage came to a tentative end. Three Chinese nationals, who were arrested for spying, received varying prison sentences.
The three individuals had been caught illegally photographing the U.S. Naval Air Station in Key West, Florida, on two separate instances in December and January.
During the first instance, Lyuyou Liao entered the base and photographed and recorded sensitive military equipment before he was arrested. For his actions, he received a one-year prison sentence followed by a one-year supervised release.
Then, in January, Jielun Zhang and Yuhao Wang were arrested for photographing military and naval infrastructure inside the base. They received a one-year and nine months of prison sentences, respectively, followed by a one-year supervised release.
