Beijing, May 11 (Jiji Press)–A Chinese court has sentenced a Japanese man to five years and six months in prison and ordered the confiscation of his property worth 200,000 yuan for spying, informed sources said Saturday.

Dalian Intermediate People’s Court in the northeastern province of Liaoning handed down the sentence to the man in his 60s on Friday, the sources said.
