미국 FBI에서 2020. 1. 28. 하버드대 화학·생물학과 교수 Charles Lieber를 체포하였다는 뉴스입니다. 리버 교수가 중국으로부터 연간 경비 158000달러와 5만 달러 월급을 받은 사실, 중국 우한공대의 미국연구소를 설립 목적으로 150만달러를 지원받은 사실을 정부 법무부와 NIH의 조사 과정에서 사실대로 진술하지 않았다는 혐의입니다. 미국은 최근 자국의 첨단기술이 중국으로 유출되는 것을 극도로 경계하면서 기술유출 혐의에 대한 광범위한 조사와 엄격한 처벌을 진행하고 있습니다.

위키피디아 설명

Making false statements (18 U.S.C. § 1001) is the common name for the United States federal process crime laid out in Section 1001 of Title 18 of the United States Code, which generally prohibits knowingly and willfully making false or fraudulent statements, or concealing information, in "any matter within the jurisdiction" of the federal government of the United States, even by merely denying guilt when asked by a federal agent.

 

A number of notable people have been convicted under the section, including Martha Stewart, Rod Blagojevich, Michael T. Flynn, Rick Gates, Scooter Libby, Bernard Madoff, and Jeffrey Skilling.

 

This statute is used in many contexts. Most commonly, prosecutors use this statute to reach cover-up crimes such as perjury, false declarations, and obstruction of justice and government fraud cases.
