Chinese National Charged with Destroying Hard Drive During FBI Investigation into the Possible Transfer of Sensitive Software to China

中国公民被指控在FBI调查可能向中国转移敏感软件期间破坏硬盘

A Chinese national and researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles has been arrested on federal charges of destroying evidence to obstruct an FBI investigation after he was observed throwing a damaged hard drive into a dumpster outside his apartment, the Justice Department announced today.

美国司法部今天宣布,一名中国公民、加州大学洛杉矶分校研究员因涉嫌破坏证据妨碍联邦调查局(FBI)调查,已被联邦政府逮捕。此前,有人观察到他将一个损坏的硬盘扔进公寓外的垃圾箱。

Guan Lei, 29, of Alhambra, was arrested pursuant to a one-count criminal complaint unsealed this afternoon during his initial appearance in United States District Court.

29岁的关磊居住在阿罕布拉市,他依据今天下午在美国地区法院首次出庭时公布的一项刑事指控而被逮捕的。

The criminal complaint alleges that Guan, who was in the U.S. on a J-1 non-immigrant visa, threw a damaged hard drive into a trash dumpster near his residence on July 25.  The FBI recovered the damaged hard drive after Guan was not allowed to board a flight to China and after Guan refused the FBI’s request to examine his computer.  The affidavit in support of the complaint notes that the internal hard drive “was irreparably damaged and that all previous data associated with the hard drive appears to have been removed deliberately and by force.”

刑事起诉书称,7月25日,持J-1非移民签证在美国的关某将一个损坏的硬盘扔进了他家附近的垃圾箱。在关某不允许登上飞往中国的航班及拒绝FBI检查其计算机的要求后,FBI恢复了损坏的硬盘。支持该申诉的证词指出,内部硬盘”遭到了不可挽回的损坏,之前所有与硬盘有关的数据似乎都被故意和强制删除了。”

According to the complaint, Guan is being investigated for possibly transferring sensitive U.S. software or technical data to China’s National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) and falsely denying his association with the Chinese military – the People’s Liberation Army – in connection with his 2018 visa application and in interviews with federal law enforcement. Guan later admitted that he had participated in military training and wore military uniforms while at NUDT.  One of Guan’s NUDT faculty advisors in China was also a lieutenant general in the PLA who developed computers used by the PLA General Staff Department, the PLA General Armament Department, Air Force, military weather forecasts, and nuclear technology. NUDT is “suspected of procuring U.S.-origin items to develop supercomputers with nuclear explosive applications “and has been placed on the Department of Commerce’s Entity List for nuclear nonproliferation reasons, according to the affidavit.

起诉书称,关某因可能将美国敏感软件或技术数据转移到中国国防科技大学(NUDT),并在2018年的签证申请和接受联邦执法部门问询时,拒不承认自己与中国军队–中国人民解放军的关系而受到调查。关某后来承认,他在中国国防科技大学(NUDT)期间参加了军事训练,并穿着军装。关某在中国国防科技大学(NUDT)的教员顾问之一,也是解放军的一名中将,他曾为解放军总参谋部、解放军总装备部、空军、军事天气预报和核技术开发计算器。根据宣誓书,中国国防科技大学(NUDT) “涉嫌采购源自美国的物品,以开发具有核爆炸应用的超级计算器”,并因核不扩散原因被列入商务部的实体名单。

In addition to destroying the hard drive, the complaint alleges that Guan concealed digital storage devices from investigators and falsely told federal officials that he had not had any contact with the Chinese consulate during his nearly two-year stay in the U.S.

除了销毁硬盘外,起诉书还称,关某向调查人员隐瞒了数字存储设备,并对联邦官员谎称,他在美国逗留近两年期间没有与中国领事馆有过任何联系。

During his initial appearance this afternoon, Guan was ordered detained by a United States Magistrate Judge, who scheduled an arraignment for Sept. 17, 2020.

在今天下午的初次出庭中,美国地方法官下令将关某拘留,并安排在2020年9月17日进行提审。

A criminal complaint contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

刑事诉讼包含了对被告人犯罪的指控。除了在排除合理怀疑的情况下被证明有罪之外,每名被告都被推定为无罪。

The felony offense of destruction of evidence carries a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.

销毁证据的重罪最高可判处20年联邦监禁。

This case is being investigated by the FBI, Homeland Security Investigations, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service has provided substantial assistance during the investigation.

此案正由联邦调查局、国土安全调查局和美国海关与边境保护局调查。美国国务院外交安全局在调查期间提供了大量协助。

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Will Rollins and George Pence of the Terrorism and Export Crimes Section.

这起案件由美国反恐和出口犯罪部门的助理检察官威尔·罗林斯和乔治·彭斯起诉。
