Former Student at Boston University Wanted by FBI for Alleged Counterintelligence

“a lieutenant in the People’s Liberation Army, the armed forces of the People’s Republic of China, and a member of the Chinese Communist Party”

It’s amazing that this story isn’t getting much notice in the media. It’s like the plot of a movie.

Boston.com reports:

Former Boston University student wanted by the FBI for alleged counterintelligence

The FBI has released a “most wanted” poster for a Chinese lieutenant who allegedly acted as an agent for a foreign government while studying in Boston University’s Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering.

A federal arrest warrant was issued for the former student, Yanqing Ye, on Tuesday in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Boston, according to the FBI. The 29-year-old is being charged with acting as an agent of a foreign government, visa fraud, making false statements, and conspiracy.

Authorities said Ye is a lieutenant in the People’s Liberation Army, the armed forces of the People’s Republic of China, and a member of the Chinese Communist Party.

Ye reportedly continued working as a Liberation Army lieutenant while in the U.S., and completed multiple assignments, like conducting research, assessing U.S. military websites, and sending U.S. documents and information to China.

In China, she reportedly studied at the National University of Defense Technology, which is a top military academy directed by the communist party.

The FBI alleges that Ye falsely identified herself as a student on her J-1 visa application, a non-immigrant visa, and lied about her military service, maintaining close contact with her supervisor and colleagues at the NUDT while studying at BU.

correction: those actions would make her an “intelligence agent” or spy.

counterintelligence agents search for spies, not information.
