A Chinese intelligence agent has been charged in the United States with harassing a former Chinese dissident who is running for Congress.

Qiming Lin, an agent of China’s State Security Ministry, was accused of trying to harass and intimidate a congressional candidate in a criminal complaint filed on Wednesday.

The candidate was not identified in the complaint, but his profile matches that of Yan Xiong, a former Tiananmen Square dissident who emigrated to the United States in 1992 and is seeking a seat in the New York House of Representatives.
