Jacksonville Woman Pleads Guilty to Attempting to Illegally Exporting Maritime Raiding Craft and Engines to China

傑克遜維爾女子認罪 – 企圖非法向中國出口海上突擊艇和引擎

Yang Yang (34, Jacksonville) has pleaded guilty to conspiring to submit false export information through the federal government’s Automated Export System and to fraudulently export to China maritime raiding craft and engines in violation of United States (U.S.) law, and also to attempting to fraudulently export that equipment in violation of U.S. law. Yang faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in federal prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

楊洋(34歲,[現居住在美國佛羅里達州的]傑克遜維爾市)認罪,共謀通過聯邦政府的自動出口系統提供虛假出口信息,違反美國法律以欺詐手段向中國出口海上突擊艇和發動機。並試圖違反美國法律以欺詐手段出口設備。楊面臨15年在聯邦監獄度過的最高刑期。判決日期尚未確定。

According to the plea agreement, Yang was employed by Shanghai Breeze Technology Co. Ltd., a company headquartered in Shanghai, People’s Republic of China. At the direction of co-conspirators in China, she attempted to order from a U.S. manufacturer seven combat rubber raiding craft equipped with engines that can operate using gasoline, diesel fuel, or jet fuel. These vessels and multi-fuel engines are used by the U.S. military and can be operated after being launched from a submerged submarine or dropped into the ocean by an aircraft. No comparable engine is manufactured in China. When the U.S. manufacturer suggested that Yang purchase cheaper gasoline-fueled engines, she insisted that she wanted to purchase the military-model multi-fuel engines.

根據這個認罪協議,楊受聘於上海微風科技有限公司,該公司總部位於中國上海。在中國的同謀者的指示下,她試圖從一家美國製造商那裡訂購7架戰鬥橡皮突擊艇,這些突擊艇配備了可以使用汽油,柴油或噴氣燃料的發動機。這些突擊艇和多燃料發動機由美國軍方使用,可從水下潛水艇下水,或從飛機上降落到海上後進行操作。中國沒有同類發動機生產能力。當美國製造商建議楊購買更廉價的汽油發動機時,她堅持要購買軍用多燃料發動機。

To induce the manufacturer to sell this equipment, Yang falsely represented that her customer was an entity called United Vision Limited in Hong Kong, rather than Shanghai Breeze Technology Co. in Shanghai. One of Yang’s Chinese co-workers had told her that American manufacturers would be more likely to sell to an entity in Hong Kong rather than one in mainland China. By misrepresenting what company was buying the equipment, and where it was located, Yang caused the entry of false information in the Department of Commerce’s Automated Export System in violation of federal law.

為了誘使製造商出售該設備,楊訛稱她的客戶是一家叫香港聯視微科技有限公司(United Vision Limited)的實體, 而不是位於上海的上海微風科技有限公司。其中一個楊在中國的同事曾告訴過她,美國製造商更有可能賣給香港實體,而不是中國大陸的。通過虛假陳述設備買家之公司及其所在地,楊導致了在商務部的自動出口系統中輸入虛假信息,其違反美國法律。

When interviewed by federal agents on Oct. 17, 2019, Yang admitted that she had only one client, Shanghai Breeze, and that based on her communications with a co-conspirator, she knew that the combat raiding craft were not intended for Hong Kong, but instead, mainland China.

在2019年10月17日接受聯邦特工問詢時,楊承認自己只有一位客戶,即上海微風,並且基於與其同謀的交流,她知道戰鬥突擊艇不是給香港,而是給中國大陸的。

On Aug. 13, 2020, Yang’s co-defendant, Zheng Yan, also pleaded guilty to conspiring to submit false export information and to fraudulently export the raiding craft and engines in violation of U.S. law. The trial of their remaining co-defendants, Fan Yang and Ge Songtao, is scheduled to begin on Feb. 1, 2021.

2020年8月13日,楊的共同被告鄭燕(Zheng Yan)也認罪,共謀提交虛假的出口信息,違反美國法律以欺詐手段出口海上突擊艇和引擎。其餘的共同被告人範揚(Fan Yang)和葛松濤(Ge Songtao)的審判定於2021年2月1日開始。

This case was investigated by the FBI, the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the U.S. Department of Commerce – Bureau of Industry and Security, and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michael J. Coolican and Heather Schmidt, Senior Trial Attorney, Counterintelligence and Export Section, U.S. Department of Justice.

聯邦調查局,美國海軍刑事調查局,美國商務部-工業和安全局以及美國酒精,煙草,槍支和炸藥局對此案進行了調查。美國助理檢察官邁克爾·J·庫里坎(Michael J. Coolican)和美國司法部反情報和出口處高級審判律師希瑟·施密特(Heather Schmidt)正在對此案提起訴訟。
