Chinese who took refuge at San Francisco consulate now in United States custody

A Chinese researcher who took refuge from United States authorities at consulate of China in San Francisco is now in American custody and is expected to appear in court on Friday, a senior U.S. Justice Department official said.

According to court filings in U.S. District Court in San Francisco this week, Juan Tang, who worked at the University of California, Davis, falsely claimed on her visa application that she had not served in the Chinese military. She was charged with visa fraud on June 26. The Justice Department official told reporters she was now in U.S. custody.
