Although Garland did not provide the name of the company, the Associated Press informs that it is probably Huawei, the Chinese giant that produces, among others mobile phones, routers and other communication devices.
“Over the past week, the Department of Justice has taken several measures to disrupt the criminal activities of those working on behalf of the People’s Republic of China,” Garland said in a statement.
He filed charges against “two PRC intelligence officers, accusing them of trying to influence and obstruct criminal proceedings against a telecommunications company based in the PRC.”
“Two men, Guochun He and Zheng Wang, are accused of trying to steer a US government person they believed was cooperating to provide confidential information about a Justice Department investigation, including witnesses, trial evidence, and potential new allegations. One. of the defendants paid about $ 61,000 for this information. ” The Department of Justice said.
The person reached by the accused men began working as a double agent for the US government and contact with the accused was overseen by the FBI.
The company targeted by the accusation is not mentioned in the documents, although the references clearly indicate that it is Huawei, which was accused in 2019 of banking fraud and then conspiracy to steal trade secrets.
Garland has also filed allegations on two other cases – one on theft of technology and intimidation, and the other on a pressure campaign to get a naturalized US citizen to return to China against his will.

In the first, federal prosecutors in New Jersey accused four people, including three Chinese intelligence officers, of using “the cover of a purported Chinese academic institute to target, co-opt, and direct individuals in the United States to support China’s intelligence mission” within 10 years of 2008, donated Garland.
They also tried to “procure technology and equipment from the United States and have it shipped to China” and stop actions and protests that would be embarrassing for the Chinese government.
The second case concerns seven people accused of engaging in “a long-standing campaign of threats and harassment to force a US resident to return to China,” Garland said.
“The accused threatened the victim, saying that” returning and surrendering yourself to the police is the only option, “Garland said. – They showed up at the victim’s son’s home in New York. They filed petty lawsuits against the victim and her son and said it would be “an endless misfortune for the accused and the son to defend themselves.” They made it clear that their harassment would not stop until the victim returned to China, “he added.
Merrick Garland’s statement comes nearly two weeks before the November 8 Senate and House elections.
Justice Department officials typically avoid making important decisions about 60 days before an election, believing that they could influence an upcoming vote.
