EXPATRIATE RAYTHEON ENGINEER ARRESTED BY FBI FOR TAKING US MISSILE DEFENCE SECRETS TO CHINA

On 2 February, the International Business Times reported that Wei Sun, 48, a systems engineer from Raytheon Missile Defense Systems Missile has been indicted for violating federal export control laws after he took his work laptop without authorisation during an overseas trip.  It is reported that he had secret-level security clearance and worked on highly sensitive missile programmes used by the US military.  Not only this, but it is said that he had “suddenly” announced that he was quitting his job after 10 years and going for further studies and work overseas.
