Prison for US man who illegally shared nuclear tech

Jail term for US man who illegally shared nuclear tech, An American man has been sentenced to two years in jail for illegally helping China develop its nuclear power programme. BBC 2 Sept 17

Szuhsiung Ho, aka Allen Ho, helped Chinese efforts to develop nuclear power for almost 20 years, said the US Department of Justice.

Ho was prosecuted because he did not obtain explicit permission to share “sensitive” nuclear technologies.

He was also fined $20,000 (£15,500) for breaking the US tech transfer rules…….Many of the technologies involved in using radioactive material to generate power are on a proscribed list, and anyone seeking to share them must first get permission from the US Department of Energy to do so…..http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-41122104
