TAIPEI (Kyodo) -- A Taiwanese military intelligence officer and an 
alleged double agent for China were in custody Tuesday as investigators 
probe the latest espionage scandal to hit Taiwan's defense establishment 
and assess the damage to its intelligence network.

The detained officer, identified by local media as Col. Lo Chi-cheng, 
allegedly transferred classified data over several years to a Taiwanese 
man linked to Taiwan's intelligence network and who has business 
interests in China.

The data was then allegedly passed on to Chinese intelligence, media 
reports said.

The two suspects were arrested Sunday and their homes searched after 
investigators witnessed the two men allegedly exchanging classified data 
in a Taipei street.
