If this isn’t a cause for concern, I don’t know what is. Multiple reports indicate that China has its own police stations set up right here in the US.
FBI Director Christopher Wray tipped toed around questions from Republican Senator Rick Scott when asked what authority or jurisdiction the CCP has in the US.
“We are aware of these stations,” said Wray. He continued by stating that there are a number of indictments in which the Chinese engaged in what he called “uncoordinated law enforcement action right here in the United States, harassing, stalking, surveilling, blackmailing people that don’t like or disagree with the XI regime.” Wray acknowledged that it is a real problem and that the US is not the only country where this problem has occurred.
THE BBC reported in September Human rights group Safeguard Defenders in a report in September saying Chinese authorities had 54 “police” stations overseas. In Dublin Ireland a Chinese police station was ordered to shut down according to a report by Safeguard Defenders, sighting multiple violations which “eschew official police and judicial cooperation and violate the international rule of law, and may violate the territorial integrity of third countries involved in setting up a parallel policing mechanism using illegal methods.”
The Dutch Foreign Affairs said it would investigate reports that China operates two illegal police stations in the Netherlands. Allegedly the stations were established without notifying The ministry in The Hague.
As expected, this report has US citizens outraged due to the ensuing threat that could be catastrophic in the long run. From a surveillance standpoint, it is troubling to know that a foreign government has this much power here in the US. Most US citizens are uncomfortable with their government surveilling them. Let alone a communist foreign government that has used spy techniques in the past. Even FBI director Christopher admitted that there had been situations where they have planted bugs inside US citizens’ cars.
