The Chinese government has opened police station in Nigeria and in over of 20 nations in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa in its efforts to handle the rising crimes rate of its citizens abroad.
This was contained in an investigative statement named, ‘110 Abroad Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild.’
It was widely reported that the police stations are created to bring “down on all kinds of illegal and criminal activities involving overseas Chinese.”
Lesotho and Tanzania are the two other African nations apart from Nigeria that have Chinese police stations.
The report by Safeguard Defender uncovered, “As opposed to cooperating with local authorities in the full regard of regional sway, it likes… to cooperate with (United Front-Link) 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’.”
The rights group revealed that China selected nine countries as having serious fraud, telecom fraud and web crimes, and Chinese nationals were no longer allowed to stay in those countries without “good reason.”
“While establishing these operations to hunt down those accused of fraud and telecommunications fraud, China identiﬁed nine countries particularly prone to hosting Chinese nationals engaging in such criminal activities, the ‘nine forbidden countries’,” the Safeguard explained.
