Chen HONGSHENG, a military scientist who is leading stealth technology capability development for the J20 made an initial unsolicited approach towards our organization fourteen months ago. Since then HONGSHENG has made six other attempts to make contact for a total of seven approaches. During those approaches he provided information of intelligence value to two occasions. On the second occasion he provided personal information which will be used to support background checks.
Given the current political and security climate this operation will be highly sensitive and therefore the overall assessed risk of the operation is high. Additional precautions will be taken to ensure the security of the overall operation. Until additional information on HONGSHENG is available this operation will be treated as if HONGSHENG has already been compromised. The compromise, given his desperation could mean that he is providing information to other intelligence organizations, we will not assue that we are the only organization that he has approached. Even if HONGSHENG’s intent is legitimate, given that he has made seven know approaches, there is a high probability that he is under suspicion. Therefore, we will not use of existing facilities and the normal support apparatus. There will be minimal expose of our procedures and contact with our personnel will be limited. A clear understanding of HONGSHENG’s value as an asset must be evaluated prior to a full investment.
