NYPD Officer Arrested for Allegedly Spying for China

A New York City police officer and U.S. Army Reserve member was arrested on federal charges for acting as a special agent for the Chinese regime.

Baimadajie Angwang, a 33-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen born in China’s Tibet region, fed intelligence about other ethnic Tibetans in New York to the Chinese consulate in the city, according to a criminal complaint.

Angwang works in Queens and lives in Nassau County, Long Island, prosecutors said. He was arrested on Sept. 19, and is due to make his initial appearance at the district court for the Eastern District of New York at 3:30 p.m. on Monday.

The officer was charged with acting as an agent for China, committing wire fraud, making false statements, and obstructing an official proceeding. He faces a combined sentence of up to 55 years imprisonment if convicted on all four.

Prosecutors also alleged that Angwang helped Chinese consulate officials gain access to senior NYPD officials.

According to the complaint, Angwang also works as a civil affairs specialist in the Army Reserve, holding the rank of Staff Sergeant and stationed at Fort Dix, New Jersey. His work involves planning, training, and executing civil-military programs, the document said. He holds a “secret” level security clearance in connection with this role.

In a phone call to an unnamed Chinese consular official—whom he referred to as “Boss”—in December 2018, Angwang identified himself as an “asset” for Beijing, saying that “even if they deny you in the end for whatever reason, but at least let them know, hey, you have someone in the police department here now,” the court records show.

Those Chinese are very good with how they spend their money...
MUCH cheaper than weapons systems.

I’d love to see a University found guilty of knowingly allowing the spies to operate. Take ALL OF THEIR MONEY.
