I never heard of this

Kevin Garratt has been indicted by prosecutors in Dandong city in northeast China’s Liaoning province

He and his wife ran a coffee shop in that town for a year or so.


Espionage charges levied against a Canadian man could put a chill on recent efforts to improve Chinese-Canadian relations, says a political scientist.


Chinese state news agency Xinhua reported Thursday that Kevin Garratt — who was arrested alongside his wife Julia Garratt in 2014 — was indicted by prosecutors in Dandong city, located across the Yalu River from North Korea.


Chinese authorities allegedly found evidence that Garratt was accepting requests from Canadian espionage agencies to gather intelligence in China, the news agency reported.


Julia Garratt(wife) was released on bail in February 2015 and has not been charged.

The issue pervades a sense of a biblical mission intended to gather intelligence as to an opportune time to establish some sort of a base. To kill two birds with one stone, the area being highly sensitive, the mission's coffee joint can also eaves-drop without being easily noticed on any political movement taking place along the border.

The Garretts were infamous for running their espionage cafe.

in any western country for being a western propaganda spouting stooge.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
