美国司法部本月21日公布,现年35岁的中国公民谭洪金(Hongjin Tan音译)涉嫌盗窃美国石油公司商业机密,价值总额超过10亿美元。他在上周递交辞呈准备回中国发展,公司报案指称商业机密遭窃,联邦调查局于本月20日将他逮捕。

这起案件由美国国家安全部和联邦调查局联合调查,起诉书中指出,现年35岁的谭洪金是俄克拉荷马州一家石油公司A(化名)的电池发展部门的研发工程师,主要负责公司的电池科技项目。他在中国南京大学获得物理学学士学位,并在帕萨迪纳的加州理工学院获得研究生和博士学位。来美12年,他已经获得美国绿卡。

今年12月12日,谭洪金向A公司递交辞呈,表达了将回中国照顾父母的意愿,并透露可能会到中国的电池公司工作。公司随后取消了他的登入系统权利,并对他的电脑进行审查后发现,谭洪金查看并下载了大量公司研究报告等商业机密信息,其中包括公司未来计划在中国市场销售的产品计划。

当晚,谭洪金与前同事的晚餐会面上,他表示,已到位于中国厦门的B公司(化名)面试,且他在加州理工读书时便与该公司保持联系。今年9月,他回中国时便到该公司面试,并且准备好12月27日正式回中国。这名同事将谈话内容告诉了A公司高管,12月13日,A公司向联邦调查局报案,指称公司的商业机密遭窃。

联邦调查局探员在谭洪金的工作电脑上查获一封中文任命信,信中指出B公司聘任他担任其能源新材料工程中心主任,年薪80万人民币。他上任后,如果提供“才华”,还可获得40万人民币的补偿,但他必须保证他提供的信息真实有效等等。

法庭于12月19日发布搜查令,警方在他家中搜出了含有A公司商业文件的硬盘。联邦调查局于12月20日正式将谭洪金逮捕。

根据检方诉讼指出,谭洪金涉嫌窃取A公司的商业机密,下载了数百个与产品制造相关的文件,并计划使用这些文件使他的新雇主公司B受益。

负责国家安全的助理司法部长戴默(John Demers)指出,“盗窃知识产权损害美国公司和工人的利益。正如司法部最近的案例所示,这些盗窃往往涉及中国政府或中国公司。司法部最近发起了一项保护美国经济免受来自中国非法行为冲击的倡议,我们继续将此作为首要任务。”

Chinese National Charged with Committing Theft of Trade Secrets

Hongjin Tan, a 35 year old Chinese national and U.S. legal permanent resident, was arrested on Dec. 20 and charged with theft of trade secrets. Tan is alleged to have stolen the trade secrets from his employer, a U.S. petroleum company.

The announcement was made by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, U.S. Attorney Trent Shores for the Northern District of Oklahoma, and Special Agent in Charge Kathryn Peterson of the FBI Oklahoma City Field Office.

“Hongjin Tan allegedly stole trade secrets related to a product worth more than $1 billion from his U.S.-based petroleum company employer, to use for the benefit of a Chinese company where he was offered employment,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “The theft of intellectual property harms American companies and American workers. As our recent cases show, all too often these thefts involve the Chinese government or Chinese companies. The Department recently launched an initiative to protect our economy from such illegal practices emanating from China, and we continue to make this a top priority.”  

“The United States filed a criminal complaint against a Chinese national alleging the theft of intellectual property from a company with significant operations in Oklahoma,” said U.S. Attorney Shores. “The value of the trade secrets in this case is estimated to be more than $1 billion dollars. Theft of critical research, development, and other intellectual property harms the economic prosperity and security of the United States. My office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will utilize all tools available to respond to these types of threats. We will protect Oklahomans and Oklahoma businesses by prosecuting those who violate the law.”

Tan made an initial appearance Thursday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jodi F. Jayne. A preliminary and detention hearing has been set for Dec. 26.

According to the criminal complaint, Tan allegedly stole trade secrets from a U.S.-based petroleum company regarding the manufacture of a “research and development downstream energy market product.” The company’s methods of developing the product are of great value, both economically and to competitors. Until recently, Tan worked for the petroleum company and allegedly downloaded hundreds of files, including files related to the manufacture of the product. Investigators allege that Tan was offered a job at a company in China where he planned to use these files to benefit his new employer. Tan has been residing in the United States for the past 12 years.

A criminal complaint is merely an allegation, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. 

The FBI conducted this investigation.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joel-lyn A. McCormick of the Northern District of Oklahoma is prosecuting the case, with assistance from Trial Attorneys Matthew R. Walczewski and Matthew J. McKenzie of the National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section (CES) and Assistant Deputy Chief Brian J. Resler of the Criminal Division’s Computer Crimes and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS).

連連出手! 美再逮1中國公民 涉竊美企價值10億元機密

美國司法部21日宣布,於20日逮捕一名涉嫌從美國石油公司竊取商業機密的中國公民,估計遭竊機密價值超過10億美元。

根據司法部新聞稿,被捕人士叫Hongjin Tan,35歲,是一名美國永久居民、中國公民。Hongjin Tan被指控竊取石油公司研發一款產品的商業機密,對於競爭對手具有重要價值。被捕之前不久,他都還在石油公司工作,並持續下載檔案;調查人員稱中國一家公司有意聘請他,他計畫把這些檔案交給新雇主。

司法部負責國家安全事務的助理部長戴莫斯(John Demers)表示,竊取智慧財產權損及美國企業與勞工,最近的案子顯示,這些竊取行為往往與中國政府或企業相關。

戴莫斯說,司法部最近啟動了一項計畫,以避免中國的非法行為損及美國經濟,司法部會繼續將此當作首要任務。

司法部20日才就中國執法舉行記者會,宣布起訴與中國國家安全部有關的2名駭客,因他們涉嫌竊取美國政府機構與公司的資料;白宮、國務院等政府部門官員也譴責中國違反美中2015年達成的網路協議,並敦促中方遵守承諾、負起責任。

司法部前部長塞辛斯11月初宣布成立一項新的執法行動「中國計畫」(China Initiative),優先處理中國竊取商業機密的案件,以打擊中國的經濟間諜活動。
