BEIJING, May 26 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese mainland spokesperson said Friday that Taiwan resident Lee Ming-che is under arrest on suspicions of "subverting the state power."

According to the country's security authorities, Lee has been arrested in accordance with the law by the Hunan provincial security organ, said An Fengshan, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council.

Investigation by security authorities found that Lee had frequently entered the mainland since 2012. He colluded with mainlanders, stipulated action guidelines, established illegal organizations, and plotted and carried out activities to subvert state power, An said.

On March 19, 2017, Lee, who was on the mainland to participate in illegal activities, was put under coercive measures by security authorities in line with the law, said An.

After interrogation, Lee and his group confessed to engaging in activities endangering national security, An said.

Judicial authorities will handle the case in accordance with the law, An added.
