On 14 August, former CIA intelligence officer Alexander Yuk Ching MA (67) was charged with providing national defense information to Chinese Ministry of State Security intelligence officials. MA was employed by the CIA between 1982 and 1989, and in March 2001, provided highly classified information to MSS officers during three days of meetings in Hong Kong. He then sought employment with the FBI as a contract linguist and provided classified information he was able to access between 2004 and 2010. He, along with a relative who was also a former CIA intelligence officer, provided classified information that included CIA methods as well as the identities of CIA personnel and human assets. MA was arrested after receiving payment from an undercover FBI employee at meetings in which MA confirmed his activities for MSS. The following week, the arrest of Peter DEBBINS, a former U.S. Green Beret captain, was announced. DEBBINS reportedly spied for Russia for more than a decade.

“Two espionage arrests in the past week — Ma in Hawaii and now Debbins in Virginia — demonstrate that we must remain vigilant against espionage from our two most malicious adversaries — Russia and China.  Debbins violated his oath as a U.S. Army officer, betrayed the Special Forces and endangered our country’s national security by revealing classified information to Russian intelligence officers, providing details of his unit, and identifying Special Forces team members for Russian intelligence to try to recruit as a spy.  Our country put its highest trust in this defendant, and he took that trust and weaponized it against the United States.” - Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, 21 August 2020.
