China detains employee of Britain's Hong Kong mission, UK urged to act

Recommended Posts

Now it is up to China to show some goodwill and let him free ... or demonstrate the " strength and power " of the chinese government and punish him or make him disappear , what will be internationally regarded as a violation of human rights .

Which way will they take ? Will be interesting to see and will tell a lot about possible future relations to China .

The world should stop China. I wish that Trump shows them the way we treat monkeys.

 

 

Yer.... that’ll work.... hey! look how tough we are on the monkeys!

 

mind you... I think it was China that used to chop open a monkeys head and eat its brains, while the monkey still lived, so just maybe China would win that one.

 

Then again, if by “monkeys”, you mean asylum seekers at the southern border, then you need to check that s*** at the door.

UK can't do diddly squat, a country which has now become a slave to its new masters. China will of course do as it pleases.

No it's not. He is a Chinese national who happens to work for the British Consulate (he works for the Scottish Government according to the BBC, so not even actually working for the UK government). 

 

It's up to the police to charge him and reveal why he was arrested or release him with no charges and an explanation.

 

He isn't a British citizen, nor a British government employee or diplomat. He is not above the law in any way.

It doesn't work like that in China. The police can keep him on 'Administrative Detention' for up to 15 days for minor infractions and not charge him with anything. They don't have to tell anyone except his NOK.
