Lovely speaks to Wash Times about FBI, Chinese-American scientists

Lovely,-MaryProfessor Mary Lovely says the rules governing scientists’ ties to Chinese research institutions are murky and sometimes lead prosecutors to charge people who have made innocent mistakes. "There should be clear guidance on what is allowable, what is not allowable and what requires more transparency," she says. "People can stumble into things inadvertently. The rules have to be very clear and if someone violates those clear rules, then you throw the book at them." Lovely was interviewed for the Washington Times article "House Democrats say FBI too tough on friendly Chinese visitors." 02/25/20
