NANJING, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- Two suspects from east China's Jiangsu Province have been charged with spying for Taiwan, a senior procurator said here.
The two suspects, identified as Ma Liangliang and Liang Xin, were charged by the Suzhou City Procuratorate in May 2017, according to Liu Hua, head of the Jiangsu provincial procuratorate.
They were recruited by Taiwan spy Wu Rong in July 2016 and knowingly provided Wu military information through emails, Liu told the ongoing provincial legislative session.
Their espionage activity has seriously undermined the military security of the Chinese mainland, Liu said.
Espionage is a severe crime on the Chinese mainland, which can result in a life sentence, or, in some cases, the death penalty.
The court is yet to rule on the case.
