Singaporean Man Acted As Cutout Agent For Chinese Military, Used Americans For Intel

Prosecutors said Friday a Singaporean man living in Washington DC has pleaded guilty to being an 'illegal agent of a foreign power.'

Jun Wei Yeo was also known as Dickson Yeo.

According to CNN, he worked for Chinese intelligence for four or five years.

Using a fake consultancy site, he cultivated Americans with access to sensitive information.

He then commissioned them to write reports, which he then passed on to Beijing.
