A US court has sentenced a well-known Mexican biochemist to four years in prison for spying for Russia.
Hector Cabrera Fuentes, 37, admitted to working for a foreign government without notifying US authorities.
“I am very sorry and remorseful for what I did and I apologize to the United States,” he said.
“Everyone makes mistakes in their life and this was my biggest mistake,” he added.
Hector Cabrera Fuentes, who lived in Singapore in 2020, was arrested in Miami on charges of spying for Moscow, a US government source said.
He “recruited” Russian official Hector Cabrera Fuentes in 2019, according to court documents.
