NASA Researcher Arrested for False Statements and Wire Fraud in Relation to China's Talents Program, Department of Justice

"The charges allege Cheng and TAMU received funds based on Cheng knowingly providing false information to TAMU and consequently to NASA. In addition to the funds, Cheng personally benefited from his affiliation with TAMU and NASA with increased access to unique NASA resources, such as the International Space Station, according to the complaint. This access allegedly allowed Cheng to further his standing in China at Guangdong University of Technology and other universities. The charges further allege he held senior research positions there unknown to TAMU and NASA and was able to serve in the People's Republic of China Talents program. China's Talents Plans are allegedly designed to attract, recruit and cultivate high-level scientific talent in furtherance of China's scientific development, economic prosperity and national security."
