London, Aug. 10 (ANI): Indian American engineer Noshir Gowadia has expressed disappointment over the US Government accusing and charging him of spying for China.

Gowadia was convicted on 14 of 17 counts, including conspiracy, violating the arms export control act, tax evasion and money laundering. He was acquitted on charges of knowingly communicating national defence information.

The decision came after six days of deliberations at a federal court in Honolulu.

"Mr. Gowadia provided some of our country's most sensitive weapons-related designs to the Chinese government for money. Today, he is being held accountable for his actions," said Assistant Attorney General David Kris.

He added: "This prosecution should serve as a warning to others who would compromise our nation's military secrets for profit."

Noshir Gowadia, a former B2 stealth bomber engineer, has been accused of pocketing at least 110,000 US dollars from China, which he allegedly used to pay the mortgage on a multimillion-dollar ocean view home he built on Maui's north shore.

Gowadia, 66, who has been in federal custody since October 2005, faces life in prison when he is sentenced in November. (ANI)
