NEW YORK - Federal prosecutors on Wednesday accused two Taiwanese nationals of trying to buy US military technology on behalf of people they claimed worked in the Chinese government.

Federal prosecutors in Newark, New Jersey said Hui Sheng Shen, 45, and Huan Ling Chang, 41, had been under US investigation since February 2011, when they agreed to sell methamphetamine to undercover federal agents.

But in a series of meetings in September and October 2011 in Las Vegas, Shen and Chang began asking the undercover agents for US military technology, court documents said.

Asked who the technology was for, the Taiwanese defendants said it had been requested by an assistant to a high ranking Chinese official, court documents said.
