Dr Charles M Lieber - the jew who reengineered the coronavirus
$1M cash bond set in case of Harvard professor accused of concealing China ties
Jan 30, 2020
Harvard University Chemistry Department chairman Dr. Charles Lieber is being required to post $1 million cash bond after he was accused of lying to federal authorities about his ties to China.
Lieber, 60, was arrested Tuesday, hours before U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling hosted a press conference discussing three similar, but unrelated cases in which scientists affiliated with Boston-area institutions are accused of trying to provide clandestine scientific aid to the People's Republic of China.
Lieber was led into a federal courtroom Thursday afternoon with his hands cuffed behind his back. His wife was seated in the first row of the gallery.
The judge required Lieber to post bond in cash and ruled that the value of his Lexington home could not be accepted because the university owns a portion of the property. Additionally, the judge required Lieber and his wife to surrender their passports.

Lieber may be released from custody Thursday and in that case he would have one week to post the bond money or else be rearrested.
According to a criminal complaint, Lieber did not disclose that he was being paid a salary of up to $50,000 per month and up to $158,000 per year in living expenses by China's Thousand Talents Plan and the Wuhan University of Technology. Federal investigators also determined that Lieber was awarded more than $1.5 million to establish a nanotechnology research lab at WUT.
"China's Thousand Talents Plan, according to the complaint (is) a Chinese government-run program designed to entice scientists and researchers in the United States to share their research expertise with China," said Lelling.
Lieber is accused of making false statements about his connections to China on National Institutes of Health grant applications. Lelling said those programs required Lieber to disclose if he was working with any foreign power.
“The charges brought by the U.S. government against Prof. Lieber are extremely serious. Harvard is cooperating with federal authorities, including the National Institutes of Health, and is conducting its own review of the alleged misconduct," a Harvard spokesperson said Tuesday. "Professor Lieber has been placed on indefinite administrative leave.”
Lieber could face up to five years in prison if he is convicted.
