(Taipei, Taiwan—Dec. 12, 2013) Taiwan’s State Security Bureau has supplied an answer to the Dec. 4 inquiry, made after a hearing that included testimonies from imprisoned Chinese dissidents’ daughters, into the matter of U.S. citizen Wang Bingzhang’s alleged spy activity against China, in association Taiwan: Wang wasn’t hired by the agency.

The letter, which contains the answer, is part of the follow-up procedure to the inquiry (http://www.chinaaid.org/
2013/12/taiwanese-legislators-draft.html) requested by Taiwanese legislators and Wang’s daughter, Ti-Anna Wang, after the Dec. 2 hearing (http://www.chinaaid.org/2013/12/
china-16-becomes-china-18-prisoners.html). The deadline for the inquiry was Dec. 10, on the U.N.-declared Human Rights Day.

Wang was kidnapped from Vietnam in 2002 and sentenced to life in prison for passing military secrets to Taiwan, plotting to bomb a Chinese embassy in Thailand and other crimes. The inquiry (the full text can be read below) determined that Wang had never been employed by the State Security Bureau to conduct espionage activities; a conclusion which, according to Bob Fu, president and founder of ChinaAid, warrants a re-trial.

ChinaAid calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Wang. For more information about Wang, visit http://www.china18.org/2013/11/blog-post_3404.html.
