2 Japanese arrested in China on spying allegations

(NHK)

Japan's Foreign Ministry has revealed that 2 Japanese men being held in China were formally arrested last month.

The men were among a group of 6 Japanese people detained in March in the eastern province of Shandong and on the southern island of Hainan.

All 6 were dispatched to China at the request of Chinese companies to work on hot springs developments. 4 were released in July.

Chinese Communist Party-affiliated media have reported that authorities were interrogating the 2 Japanese on suspicion of stealing national secrets. The media alleged they conducted geological assessments without government permission.

Following China's enactment of an anti-espionage law 3 years ago, local authorities have held 8 Japanese people on charges that include alleged involvement in spying.

Japan's Foreign Ministry says 5 are currently being tried behind closed doors. They include the head of an organization promoting exchanges between the countries.
