The 53-year-old, 29-year-old and 24-year-old suspects have been identified by their surnames only: Zhao, Wu and Gu, respectively.
Between October 2013 and June 2014, Zhao made a cool RMB74,500 by leaking 11 internal documents and periodicals. Wu earned RMB3,800 by taking 120 photos of military facilities and exercises while Gu received RMB34,450 for sending his handler 93 photos of the same, plus annotating 33 maps and 25 satellite images and writing 29 reports on local military movements.
Gone are the days of seasoned spy scouts recruiting students from elite universities over clandestine rendezvous on park benches; now, most secret agents are apparently found on Craigslist.
To that end, a spokesperson from Jiangsu's ministry of national security has reminded people to be careful when applying for jobs online, so as to avoid becoming a spy for dark forces abroad. If you do get taken, don't let them threaten you into compliance. If you turn yourself in voluntarily, they just might go easy on you.
Remember, citizens, the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Well, not liberty, but, you know.
