Event Announcement: The Case of Professor Xiaoxing Xi | San Francisco, Los Angeles, Irvine

The Committee of 100 will co-sponsor a series of presentations by Professor Xiaoxing Xi in California next week.  Professor Xi was a panelist at C-100’s Annual Conference in Los Angeles, and was also featured in the 60 Minutes presentation “Collateral Damage.” In May 2015, Professor Xiaoxing Xi was arrested and charged by the U.S. government for passing sensitive technology secrets to China. His home was raided by the FBI and he was widely labeled a spy, but months later all charges against him were dropped without explanation. The government did not understand the science in their case and had misconstrued Professor Xi’s academic work.

His case is the latest in a spate of wrongful prosecutions of Chinese American scientists for economic espionage. Come hear Professor Xi tell his story, and learn more about how you can protect yourself if you are unjustly targeted by law enforcement. He will be joined by C-100 members Brian Sun and Stewart Kwoh in Los Angeles, Dr. Hatem Bazian of UC-Berkeley, Ameena Qazi of National Lawyers Guild, Donald K. Tamaki of Minami Tamaki LLP and many others.
