US Warns Citizens Against Travel to China Due to Local Laws - State Department
The development comes in the wake of detention of two Canadians by Chinese authorities last month on charges of activities that "endanger China's security".
The rights of foreign nationals in China have received renewed focus because of public concern over the fate of three USA citizens accused of committing "economic crimes" in the country. There were reports that has confirmed the detention of Spavor and Kovrig were tied to the arrest of Huawei's CFO. American officials claim that Meng Wanzhou violated USA sanctions on trade with Iran by misleading American financial institutions into facilitating the deals.
The State Department took a break from the federal government's shutdown to warn people who are planning to visit China that they may never be able to return home.
"It's not advancing any objective other than the goal of further raising doubts about China's reliability as a country that's going to follow the rule of law".
In comparison there are nearly 900 Canadians in a similar situation in the United States, the official said.
Those comments don't offer any new information for Kovrig's distressed family and friends, who still don't know why or for how long he's being detained, said Robert Malley, president of the Crisis Group.
"Abuses included instances of extrajudicial killings, torture and mistreatment of prisoners, forced confessions, arbitrary arrest and detention, lengthy incommunicado detention, and denial of due process", it said in a profile of the People's Republic. "We will have to wait and see", Wu said. The men have not been charged yet.
Michael Cooper, a Conservative MP taking part in the trip, said he expects the detentions to come up naturally in conversation with Chinese officials.
