MIAMI (AP) - Officials say a Taiwanese national convicted of conspiring to send military parts to China has been removed from the United States.
    
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reports that 64-year-old Ko-Suen Moo left Atlanta on Tuesday and arrived the next day in Taiwan, where he was turned over to local authorities.
    
Moo was arrested in Miami in November 2005 after Homeland Security agents caught him trying to buy sophisticated military parts. Officials say he was planning to export the parts to China without obtaining an export license.
    
Moo pleaded guilty to conspiracy to export defense articles and failure to register as an agent of a foreign government - the People's Republic of China - in May 2006. Several months later he pleaded guilty to bribery of public officials.
    
Moo was sentenced to 6 ½ years in prison.
