Federal authorities have arrested Litang Liang, a U.S. citizen accused of assisting the Chinese Communist Party to suppress political dissenters.  A resident of Boston, Massachusetts, Liang was indicted on Tuesday on charges of plans to act as an agent of a foreign government.  The U.S. District Court wrote in its indictment, “Litang Liang knowingly acted and caused others to act in the United States as an agent of a foreign government, namely, the People’s Republic of China, without providing prior notification to the United States Attorney General, as required by law.”  Accusations have come against Liang of acting as an agent of the People’s Republic of China since around 2018.
