Two intelligence officers from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) attempted to bribe a U.S. intelligence agent with $61,000 in bitcoin, per a release from the Justice Department.

“Today’s complaint underscores the unrelenting efforts of the PRC government to undermine the rule of law,” stated United States Attorney Breon Peace.

“As alleged, the case involves an effort by PRC intelligence officers to obstruct an ongoing criminal prosecution by making bribes to obtain files from {U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York} and sharing them with a global telecommunications company that is a charged defendant in an ongoing prosecution,” Peace continued.
