Dickson Yeo Jun Wei, 39, pleaded guilty in July to using his political consultancy in the US as a front to collect information for Chinese intelligence services.

The former National University of Singapore (NUS) PhD student admitted to operating illegally as a foreign agent in the US.

The US government called for him to be jailed for 16 months ahead of his sentencing hearing in Washington DC on Friday (Oct 9) morning (Friday night Singapore time).

This is less than the “appropriate sentence” of 30 months, and takes into account Yeo’s cooperation with authorities, said the prosecution on behalf of the US government.
