This sort of issue is always there. It is not easy task to catch person and penalize them. This is a great news. Obviously, Chinese cooperation help to solve this matter. I am not sure the penalty of 600,000 yes is sufficient though. The lost the company got must be enormous. Nevertheless it is a good news!
