US regime drops case against NYC cop accused of spying for China

Source: US News & World Report

“Charges against a New York City police officer accused of spying on behalf of China were formally dropped Thursday after U.S. prosecutors said they uncovered new information that warranted the dismissal. It ended a two-year ordeal for Baimadajie Angwang, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Tibet, who spent about six months in custody before being granted bail. Outside the federal courthouse in Brooklyn, Angwang thanked his family and his supporters, including those on the city’s police force and the U.S. Marine Corps, where he formerly served. During a brief appearance in U.S. District Court, prosecutors said they were dropping charges ‘in the interest of justice’ but declined to reveal what new information prompted them to do so. Federal authorities had earlier accused Angwang of spying on expatriate Tibetans in New York on behalf of the Chinese consulate.” (01/19/23)
