The Chinese Way

China recently detained 4 Rio Tinto employees, one of who is an Aussie of Chinese origin and is the General Manager/Head of the Iron Ore trading group, under the pretext of stealing State secrets (as a spy ofcourse). For the world this seems very rididculous - a business person stealing state secrets.

But from the Chinese point of view this makes sense..


Chinalco - A STATE owned aluminuium company.. who is having a big stake (12.5%) and trying to expand its stake in Rio Tinto.

If the Aussie is digging some information on Chinalco which might be exclusive then it is a SECRET

So we have the STATE SECRET being stolen and he is allowed to be arrested under the law..
