Cop Accused Of Spying For Chinese Government To Be Released On $2 Million Bond
A federal judge ruled on Friday that a former NYPD officer accused of spying for the Chinese will be released on bail immediately, according to the New York Post.
The officer in question, Baimadajie Angwang, was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 while awaiting trial in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn according to the Post.
Angwang is accused of delivering information on Tibetan immigrants to the Chinese consulate over a six-year period while serving as an NYPD officer. He was charged with acting as an unregistered agent of a foreign country, wire fraud, false statements and obstruction of an official proceeding last September.
