On May 18, a US citizen and four officials from China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS) were charged in a public indictment with conspiracy and other charges related to espionage and transnational repression.

According to Justice Department documents, the defendants are Wang Shujun (US citizen) and four members of China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), including Feng He, Ming Li, Jie Ji, and Keqing Lu. Wang Shujun, 73, a US citizen who lives in Queens, New York, has been active in the pro-democracy movement community in the eastern United States. He came to the US from Qingdao, China as a visiting scholar in 1994. He served as secretary-general of the “Hu Yaobang and Zhao Ziyang Memorial Foundation” from its establishment in 2006 until 2020. Since at least 2005, Wang has been conducting covert activities under the manipulation and control of several MSS officials. Wang Shujun’s spying activities directly led to the arrest of Hong Kong pro-democracy activists by the CCP. The victims included not only Chinese pro-democracy activists and Hong Kong democracy activists but also individuals and groups in New York City and other regions that the Communist Chinese government deems subversive. He, Ji, Li, and Lu acted as Wang’s handlers, directing Wang to target specific individuals and groups that the CCP considers subversive, such as Hong Kong pro-democracy activists, advocates for Taiwanese independence, and Uyghur and Tibetan activists, and obtain information on particular topics and matters of importance to the MSS. Wang communicated and provided information to the MSS by using encrypted messaging applications and emails, as well as during face-to-face meetings in Communist China.

US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York said that Wang’s actions had threatened the safety and freedom of Chinese citizens residing in the United States on account of their pro-democracy beliefs and speech. The US government cannot tolerate the Communist Chinese government exporting repressive measures to the United States.
