On Tuesday, Moo Ko-suen (慕可舜) was finally deported back to Taiwan after being arrested in Miami on November 9th, 2005. Homeland Security agents found Moo attempting to purchase and export a variety of military parts on China’s behalf, including a F-16 aircraft engine for the Shenyang Aircraft Corporation, and also an AGM-129 cruise missile.
Moo, formerly the top rep in Taiwan for defense contractor Lockheed Martin, was also a sales agent for the ‘Broad Victory’ system, the same military information network that a certain Major General divulged secrets on to a female PRC spy.
The Taipei Times reports that Moo had shown undercover Homeland Security agents a document indicating China’s wish to acquire AGM-129 cruise missiles and AIM-120 air-to-air missiles. Moo sought to get his charges dismissed by offering bribes to public officials while under detention.
On July 24, 2006, Moo pleaded guilty to offering a $500,000 USD bribe to win release from federal custody, after earlier pleading guilty in May of working to export defense articles, and failing to register as an agent working for China. Moo received a six-and-a-half year federal prison sentence.
Following the recent end of his prison term, Moo arrived in Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport on Wednesday, and was turned over to local authorities.
And according to the Taipei Times, judicial authorities have claimed that ‘they had no information about Moo’s arrival.’ Has Moo been ‘disappeared’ already? That was quick.
