    Taipei, March 26 (CNA) A technician working at the military-run Chungshan Institute of Science and Technology was indicted Friday for leaking military secrets to mainland China and Egypt.

    Prosecutors said in their indictment that Huang Cheng-an offered to sell the secret know-how about the country's home-made missiles to mainland China and Egypt for US$7 million and US$66 million respectively.

    In order to convince his potential buyers, Huang has already passed over some sensitive materials.

    Huang's former wife, Chen Chu-chen, and another women, Lin Wei, who were accused of serving as Huang's couriers to pass the secrets or as brokers to seek potential mainland buyers, were also indicted in the case.
