The Wall Street Journal: U.S. charges ex-Air China manager with smuggling packages for Chinese military

Prosecutors charged a former Air China Ltd. manager Wednesday with smuggling packages out of the U.S. to China on behalf of Chinese military officials stationed at the country’s New York-based mission to the United Nations, the latest turn in a case linked to an alleged U.N. bribery scheme.

Brooklyn federal prosecutors charged Ying Lin, a former Newark Liberty International Airport station manager for Air China 0753, -0.35% , with five criminal counts Wednesday, including smuggling and obstruction of justice.

As previously reported by The Wall Street Journal, Lin has worked as an associate of a suspected Chinese intelligence agent linked to Macau real estate and casino mogul Ng Lap Seng, who has been charged in a separate case with bribing a now-deceased U.N.
