AMSTERDAM, April 7 (Reuters) - Dutch prosecutors said on

Friday they have detained a man who works for an unnamed

multinational company on suspicion he leaked corporate secrets

to a Chinese competitor.

In a statement, the country's national financial crimes

prosecutor said the man, identified as a 65-year-old living in

the city of Twente, is suspected of having leaked patent and

other company secrets.

Investigators said the man was about to travel to China when

they detained him, raiding his home and workplace and seizing

several digital memory devices.
