Two men were indicted by a US federal grand jury in San Jose, California on nine counts including export code violations for allegedly shipping night vision cameras to a research institute with Chinese military links. The men, Philip Cheng and Martin Shih, face at least 45 years in prison and fines of as much as US$2 million each. Both men are legal US residents. The US Department of Homeland Security, which has increased scrutiny of exports since its formation in 2001, is currently prosecuting at least five similar export code violation cases against people who have shipped sensitive technology to China.
