簡評:中共處心積慮稱霸全球,窮盡各種方法來為中共國的野心服務,無所不用其極。中共或者用「藍金黃網」羅全球頂尖高端人才,偷竊世界先進技術;或者直接派間諜滲透入西方的科研院所;或者鼓勵在西方世界的科研人員直接竊取技術,帶回中國。中共國的種種惡行,已經引起了西方世界的警覺。對於那些為中共服務的科學家,懸崖勒馬,才能回頭是岸。對於那些沒有認識到中共野心和邪惡的科學家來說,一定要清醒過來,不要以為科學無邊界。你要知道,你的科學,在納粹手中就是殺人工具、做惡利器。只有良善正義的人掌握科學,才能造福人類,實現科學的終極價值。

Harvard professor Charles Lieber charged with hiding China ties, payments

哈佛大學教授查理斯·利伯被控隱瞞與中共國的關係,並獲得其資金資助。

BOSTON (AP) — A Harvard University professor was charged Tuesday with lying about his ties to a Chinese-run recruitment program and concealing payments he received from the Chinese government for research.

波士頓(美聯社)本週二,哈佛大学(Harvard University)一名教授受到了指控,原因是他撒謊隱瞞了他与一个中國招聘项目的关系並從中獲得中國政府的研究經費。

Charles Lieber, chair of the department of chemistry and chemical biology, is accused of hiding his involvement in China’s Thousand Talents Plan, a program designed to lure people with knowledge of foreign technology and intellectual property to China.

Charles Lieber,化學與化學生物係主任,被指控隱瞞了他參與中國的“千人計畫”,該計劃意在吸引具有國外技術和知識產權的人員來中共國。

Lieber was arrested early Tuesday at his office at the Ivy League university, officials said. He remained in federal custody after a brief court appearance Tuesday, pending a detention hearing scheduled for Thursday. A message seeking comment was left Tuesday with his attorney.

官方稱,Lieber是在週二早些時候在常春藤大學辦公室被捕。他在短暫出庭後被聯邦政府拘留,等待週四舉行的拘留聽證會。也是在週二,他的律師留下了一則尋求評論的消息。

Authorities also announced charges against a researcher at Boston University, who is accused of lying about her ties to the Chinese military. Yanqing Ye, who prosecutors say is a lieutenant in the People’s Liberation Army, did work on behalf of the military while studying at the university, such as conducting research and sending documents and information to China, officials said.

有關部門還宣布,對波士頓大學的另一名研究人員提出指控。她被控在與中國軍方的關係上撒謊。檢察官說,葉燕青是中國解放軍的一名中尉,在哈佛學習期間代表軍方工作,包括研究和給中共國發送文件和信息。

There was no attorney listed in court documents for Ye, who is now in China.

法庭文件裡沒有列出葉的律師,叶目前在中國。

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling called the charges “a small sample of China’s ongoing campaign to siphon off America’s technology and know-how for its country’s gain.”

美國律師Andrew Lelling 稱,這些指控只是“中國正在進行的吸引美國技術和專有技術來竊取美國利益的一小部分。”

“No country poses a greater, more severe or long-term threat to our national security and economic prosperity than China,” said Boston FBI agent Joseph Bonavolonta. “China’s communist government’s goal, simply put, is to replace the U.S. as the world superpower, and they are breaking the law to get there,” he said.

FBI波士頓特工,Joseph Bonavolonta說: “沒有哪個國家比中共國對我們的國家安全和經濟繁榮造成了更大、更嚴重和長期的威脅。” 他還說:“簡單來說,中共政府的目的就是取代美國成為世界超級大國,而他們多采用違反法律的手段來達成這一目標。”

Under Lieber’s Thousand Talents program contract, prosecutors say, he was paid $50,000 a month by the Wuhan University of Technology in China and living expenses up to $158,000. He was also awarded more than $1.5 million to establish a research lab at the Chinese university, prosecutors said.

檢察官說,在Lieber的千人計畫合同中,武漢理工大學向他每月支付5萬美元,生活費最高15.8萬美元。他還獲得了超過150萬美元的基金在中國大學建立研究實驗室。

中文版的“千人计划外国高层次专家工作合同书”。合同书显示,“聘任方(甲方):武汉科技大学(简称甲方),受雇方:‘千人计划’高层次外国专家、美国哈佛大学教授Charles M Lieber (简称乙方)”。

In exchange, prosecutors say, Lieber agreed to publish articles, organize international conferences and apply for patents on behalf of the Chinese university, among other things.

檢察官說,作為交換,Lieber同意發表文章,組織國際會議,並代表中國大學申請專利,以及一些其他事項。

Lieber has been placed on administrative leave, Harvard officials said.

哈佛官方稱,Lieber已經進行行政休假。

“The charges brought by the U.S. government against Professor Lieber are extremely serious. Harvard is cooperating with federal authorities, including the National Institutes of Health, and is conducting its own review of the alleged misconduct,” the school said in a written statement.

哈佛大學官方書面聲明稱,“美國政府對Lieber教授的指控及其嚴重。哈佛正在與包括國家衛生研究院在內的聯邦機構合作,對自己的不當行為進行審查。”

Last month, a medical student from China was also charged in Boston with trying to smuggle vials of research specimens in a sock in his suitcase bound for China. Zaosong Zheng, who was in the U.S. on a visa sponsored by Harvard, is accused of stealing the materials from a lab at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

上個月,一個來自中國的醫科學生也在波士頓被指控,因為試圖將小瓶樣本藏在旅行箱的襪子裡走私到中共國。鄭造松,因入學哈佛獲得簽證,被指控從貝斯色列迪肯尼斯醫療中心的實驗室偷取材料。

Zheng was held without bail by a judge who ruled he was a flight risk. His attorney, Inga Bernstein, said in an email Tuesday that they are “looking forward to a jury trial so our client can be found not guilty.”

鄭被捕且不得保釋,因為法官裁定有逃跑危險。他的律師Inga Bernstein在週二的一封電子郵件中說:他們期待“陪審團審判,這樣我們的委託人會判無罪。”

“All of them were either directly or indirectly working for the Chinese government at our country’s expense,” Bonavolonta said of Lieber and the others.

Bonavolonta在談到Lieber和其他被控人員是說:“所有這些人都直接或間接為中共政府工作,但是卻用的我們國家的經費。”

The cases underscore Justice Department concerns about Chinese programs that recruit scientists with access to cutting-edge technology in the U.S. and encourage them to conduct research for Beijing’s gain and even to steal the work of American academics.

這些案件突顯了司法部對中共計畫的關注,中共計畫招募擁有美國尖端技術的科學家並鼓勵他們為北京當局做研究,並獲取中共的利益,甚至竊取美國的學術成果。

In recent years, according to a Senate subcommittee report issued last fall, the programs have been exploited by scientists who have downloaded sensitive research files before returning to China, filed patents based on U.S. research, lied on grant applications and failed to disclose money they had received from Chinese institutions.

近些年,根據去年秋天的參議院小組委員會的報告,此項計畫已經利用了這些科學家,他們返回中國前下載了敏感的研究文件,並基於美國的研究申請了專利,在申請撥款上撒謊,且拒絕透露從中國機構獲取的錢款。

The Associated Press, relying on hundreds of pages of documents obtained through public records requests, reported last year that the FBI had been reaching out to colleges and universities across the countries to warn them of the threat of economic espionage on their campuses.

美聯社,從公開的請求紀錄中獲得數百頁的文件,去年的報導稱,聯邦調查局已經向全國的高校發出警告,提醒他們校園內的經濟間諜威脅。
