Taiwan Intelligence Officer Accused of Passing Secrets to China


Taiwan says it has arrested a military intelligence officer who allegedly provided defense secrets to China.

A defense ministry spokesman says the officer worked in a division responsible for collecting information about China's military capabilities. His activities were uncovered during an investigation into a crime ring involving fake credit cards.

The spokesman says the information the officer passed on to Beijing dealt with the mainland and not Taiwan, and was non-essential.

Some information for this report provided by AFP and Reuters.
