If this is not disturbing and even unlawful, I don’t know what is, but you can bet that those who have allowed this are traitors to the People they claim to serve. A new report claims that at least 110 “overseas police service stations” have been opened around the world, including in the US and Canada.
Fox News reports:
China has opened dozens of “overseas police service stations” around the globe to monitor its citizens living abroad, including one location in New York City and three in Toronto.
“These operations eschew official bilateral police and judicial cooperation and violate the international rule of law, and may violate the territorial integrity in third countries involved in setting up a parallel policing mechanism using illegal methods,” reads a report by Safeguard Defenders, a human rights watchdog, released earlier this month.
The report, entitled “110 overseas,” details China’s extensive efforts to combat “fraud” by its citizens living overseas, in part by opening several police stations on five continents that have assisted Chinese authorities in “carrying out policing operations on foreign soil.”
According to the report, most of the overseas police stations run by China are located in Europe. The locations include London, Amsterdam, Prague, Budapest, Athens, Paris, Madrid and Frankfurt. There are currently three locations in Canada and one in New York City.
Safeguard Defenders also reported that this is a way for China to “combat the growing issue of fraud and telecommunication fraud by Chinese nationals living abroad.”
They wrote, “As these operations continue to develop and new mechanisms are set up, it is evident that countries governed by the standards set by universal human rights and the rule of law urgently need to investigate these practices to identify the (local) actors at work, mitigate the risks and effectively protect the growing number of those targeted.”
Safeguard Defenders tweeted, “Our newest investigation, out today, comes with 5 major revelations re: China’s global policing and transnational repression #TNR. 2) A new law adopted 2 Sept establishes full extraterritoriality over Chinese and foreigners globally for certain crimes.”

Associate Oxford professor Patricia M Thornton tweeted Monday, “The Irish Times: Why is there a Chinese police outpost on Dublin’s Capel Street? Spread of Chinese ‘overseas police service stations’ raises concerns among #humanrights campaigners who fear they are monitoring & controlling #China’s large diaspora. .@Peterinexile of @SafeguardDefend: the ‘persuasion’ tactics often used ‘eschew official bilateral police & judicial co-operation & violate the internat’l rule of law;’ but that #China prefers not to use the extradition process bec. it ‘requires due process & scrutiny.’”
