 US Naval Intelligence Officer held on espionage charges

The US Naval Institute identified the suspect as Taiwanese-born, naturalized American citizen Lieutenant Commander Edward Lin, who was arrested eight months ago, although details have only just emerged following Friday’s hearing.

Lt. Cmdr. Lin, who was profiled in a US Navy public relations article in 2008 following his naturalization ceremony, allegedly had access to materials classified at the “secret” level – one level below the well-known “top secret” classification.
