GM Worker in Industrial Espionage Case

A former General Motors worker has become part of an industrial espionage case.

Mrs. Shanshan Du and her husband, Mr. Yu Qin, have been accused by a federal jury in Detroit that they photocopied thousands of GM documents relating to hybrid technology.

Prosecutors allege that after acquiring the documents, they attempted to pass them on to a Chinese company, but destroyed the documents before the trial began.

The duo appeared in court yesterday but an outcome has yet to be reached.
