Chinese woman in trade secrets case seeks release

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Chinese woman charged in Iowa with conspiring to steal trade secrets from U.S. seed corn companies is asking to be released on bond while she awaits trial.

Mo Yun is one of seven people associated with Chinese agriculture biotechnology company DBN Group to be indicted in the case. The U.S. government says DBN's employees conspired to take hybrid seed corn from fields in Iowa and Illinois to duplicate the genetic traits American companies have spent millions of dollars to develop.

The 42-year-old Mo was arrested in California on July 1.

Prosecutors want her held until her trial, which is set for Dec. 1 in Des Moines. They say she has every incentive to return to China, which has no extradition treaty with the U.S.
