Chinese Government Agency Indicted: A Chinese government agency and individuals in the United States and China were accused in a federal indictment of evading quotas set to protect the U.S. textile and clothing industries. Robert Van Etten, special agent in charge of U.S. Customs in New York, said he could recall no similar instance of an indictment of a foreign government agency. The indictment resulted from a 17-month investigation touched off in part by complaints from the U.S. textile and clothing industries about nations that ignore U.S. quotas that limit imports.
