Japan Times:

Tokyo police have obtained an arrest warrant for a Chinese former student in Japan on suspicion of attempting to illegally purchase Japanese security software on the orders of the Chinese military, investigative sources said Tuesday.

The 36-year-old man, identified as Wang Jianbin, has already left Japan, however, the sources said. The police plan to place him on Interpol’s international wanted list.

The man is suspected of using a fictitious Japanese company to try and buy the software in a transaction limited to Japanese companies only.
