China opens Chinese police station in Nigeria

The Chinese government has opened police stations in Nigeria and in over 20 countries in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa in its effort to tackle the increasing criminal activities of its citizens abroad.   (Read More Here).

This was contained in an investigative statement titled, ‘110 Overseas Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild.’

Lesotho and Tanzania are the two other African countries apart from Nigeria that have Chinese police stations.

The report by Safeguard Defender revealed, “Rather than cooperating with local authorities in the full respect of territorial sovereignty, it prefers…to cooperate with (United Front-linked) overseas ‘NGOs’ or ‘civil society associations’ across the five continents, setting up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries, and directly implicating those organisations in the illegal methods employed to pursue ‘fugitives’.”

It further said that as part of a massive nationwide campaign to combat fraud and telecommunication fraud by Chinese citizens living abroad, Chinese authorities claimed that from April 2021 to July 2022, 230,000 nationals had been, “persuaded to return” to face criminal proceedings in China.

China’s official statements clarified the use of depriving suspects’ children of the right to education back in China and other actions against relatives and family members in a full-on “guilt by association” campaign.

This was revealed in a report titled ‘110 Overseas Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild.’

According to media reports, the police stations were established to crack down on “all kinds of illegal and criminal activities involving overseas Chinese.”

Apart from Nigeria, the other African countries with Chinese police stations are Lesotho and Tanzania.

“Rather than cooperating with local authorities in full respect of territorial sovereignty, it prefers…to cooperate with (United Front-linked) overseas ‘NGOs’ or ‘civil society associations’ across the five continents, setting up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries, and directly implicating those organizations in the illegal methods employed to pursue ‘fugitives,’” according to the Safeguard Defender report.

It went on to say that as part of a massive nationwide campaign to combat fraud and telecommunication fraud committed by Chinese citizens living abroad, Chinese authorities claimed that between April 2021 and July 2022, 230,000 nationals were “persuaded to return” to face criminal proceedings in China.

According to the rights group, China designated nine countries as having serious fraud, telecom fraud, and web crimes, and Chinese nationals were no longer permitted to remain in those countries without “good reason.”

“While establishing these operations to track down those accused of fraud and telecommunications fraud, China identified nine countries that were especially prone to hosting Chinese nationals engaged in such criminal activities, the ‘nine forbidden countries,’” the Safeguard explained.
