French warn of Chinese industrial espionage

CHINA is using honey traps and spying interns in industrial espionage, according to leaked French intelligence files.

One report claimed a top French researcher was wined and dined by a Chinese woman and ended up in bed with her.

''When he was shown the recorded film of the previous night in his hotel room … he proved highly co-operative,'' an intelligence official said.

In another case, an unnamed French company realised that a sample of its patented liquid had left the building after a visitor from a Chinese delegation dipped his tie into the liquid to take home a sample.

Companies should do more to protect themselves from prying eyes among the 30,000 Chinese students on internships in France, experts warned.
