Baimadajie Angwang, 33-year old NYPD officer is being charged for acting as an illegal agent of the People’s Republic of China.
A U.S. District Court complaint alleges Baimadajie Angwang knowingly acted as an agent without prior notification to the U.S. attorney general, as is required by law, according to the complaint.
Angwang is a Tibetan native of the People’s Republic of China and a naturalized U.S. citizen who lives in Williston Park, Nassau County. He worked in the 111th Precinct in Queens and is also a member of the United States Army Reserve with “secret” security clearance, according to the complaint.
Federal officials accuse Angwang of providing information on ethnic Tibetans in New York and elsewhere to the Chinese government, scouting out Tibetan intelligence agents and using his official NYPD position to get Chinese consulate officials access to senior NYPD members via official event invitations.
The People’s Republic of China has also wired tens of thousands to him, the feds say.
