Advertising executive was recruited by military intelligence Two people, one a Taiwanese, were yesterday sentenced by an Anhui court to jail terms of 10 and 11 years for allegedly spying for Taiwan, state media reported last night. Li Qingsheng , 47, former deputy advertising department director of the Anqing Television Station, had reportedly been working for Taiwan's military intelligence agency for more than 10 years, according to the China News Service. Li was handed an 11-year jail term by the Anqing Intermediate People's Court for providing political and military intelligence to Taiwan. Chang Hsin-min, a jobless Taiwanese who acted as a go-between for Li and the island's authorities, was sentenced to 10 years in jail. The report said Li was recruited by Taiwanese intelligence officers during a trip to the island in 1994. He 'failed to resist the temptation' of US$400 a month and accepted spy training in Taiwan. He had been gathering political and military information, including classified documents, mainly through his work and mainland publications. The information was recorded on films and on digital camera memory cards, and transferred to Taiwan either by Chang or by himself during visits to the island between 1994 and 1997, the report said. The agency said that after Li's arrest, his relatives had handed in 164,000 yuan out of the US$20,000 reward he had received from the Taiwanese authorities over the years. The mainland and Taiwan are widely believed to actively spy on each other. The two are the latest arrests in the mainland crackdown against rival spies. In April, nearly a dozen military officers - including at least four generals - were arrested on charges of spying for Taiwan. The central government announced in February the arrests of 24 mainland-based Taiwanese businessmen and 19 mainlanders after cracking several spy cases.
