China must reveal fate of Uighur asylum-seekers

Posted by Author on December 23, 2009


Amnesty International, 23 December 2009 –

Amnesty International has called on the Chinese authorities to reveal the whereabouts of 20 ethnic Uighur asylum-seekers who were forcibly deported from Cambodia to China on 19 December

The group, which includes two very young children, may be at risk of torture or even execution since their forcible deportation at the request of the Chinese government.

Since 2001, Amnesty International has documented cases in which Uighur asylum seekers or refugees who were forcibly returned to China were detained, reportedly tortured and in some cases sentenced to death and executed.

“The 20 should either be charged with recognizably criminal offences or released,” said Amnesty International’s Asia-Pacific Director Sam Zarifi in a letter to the Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi Buzhang.

“Their trials should meet international fair trial standards, and under no circumstances should the death penalty be imposed.

“Our concerns are heightened by the fact that the Chinese authorities have already executed nine people and sentenced eight others to death in relation to the July 2009 unrest in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region,” said Sam Zarifi.

Amnesty International has also urged the Chinese government to provide the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) with immediate access to the 20 individuals to monitor their well-being.

Australia: Chinese Falun Gong followers caught in dangerous immigration Catch-22

Posted by Author on November 4, 2008


Connie Levett Immigration Reporter, Sydney Morning Herald, Australia, November 3, 2008-

THE Immigration Department is endangering failed Falun Gong asylum seekers by forcing them to apply for travel documents from the Chinese consulate in Sydney, exposing their status to authorities and putting them in danger of persecution, refugee advocates say.

One woman, Zhang Lilin (not her real name), now needs to file a sur place claim, one created when the Government’s actions, in forcing her to go to the consulate, initiate a need for her protection.

A spokesman for the department denied that it alerted foreign authorities about former protection visa applicants. Australia deported 770 Chinese nationals in 2007-08 but the department could give no figure on what percentage of them were failed protection visa applicants.

The chairwoman of Balmain for Refugees, Frances Milne, who works with Chinese asylum seekers, said it was naive to assume, as the Australian Government did, that because it did not consider the asylum seeker a refugee, the Chinese Government would not be offended by a person claiming protection from alleged human rights abuses. Last month a Chinese consular officer told Ms Zhang that China opposed its citizens applying for asylum. “If you don’t understand, I have to say simply this is policy. As you applied for a protection visa, you should know this is against the Chinese Government’s policies.” A transcript of that conversation has been sent to the Immigration Department.

The Chinese Government has described Falun Gong as an “evil cult” and banned its practice since 1999. Since then it has staged frequent crackdowns on practitioners, detaining and torturing members because of their religious beliefs, Amnesty International says.

Mrs Milne said “the crackdown on human rights protests throughout the Olympics clearly indicates that China is very sensitive and brutal when it has to defend its human rights record against overseas claims of human rights abuses”.

In a letter to the Immigration Minister, Mrs Milne said “the Government has created the situation where [Ms Zhang] needs to make a sur place claim for protection”. She called on the minister to change departmental regulations that create such situations.

The Herald spoke with three Falun Gong practitioners who have had their claims for protection rejected, and are facing deportation. However, none of the women has a valid Chinese passport – two have expired passports and the third has lost hers since arriving in Australia – so new documents must be issued…….

Australia allowed China to interrogate asylum seekers

Posted by Author on August 14, 2008


Radioaustralia, Aug 13, 2008-

When a delegation of Chinese secret police entered Australia in 2005, Australia’s then Howard government gave it permission to interview a group of Chinese asylum seekers.

Now, the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission has found these interviews were a breach of the asylum seekers’ human rights. The Commission is now calling for the Australian government to pay compensation to the people, who included Falun Gong practitioners.

Denied Status, Denied Education– Children of North Korean Women in China

Posted by Author on April 14, 2008


Special report from Human Rights Watch, April 2008-

In the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in eastern Jilin province, northeast China, many North Korean children and children of Chinese fathers and North Korean mothers live in legal limbo. There is no official data estimating the number of such children living in the area, but local residents put the number at anywhere between a few thousand and several tens of thousands.

A serious problem these children face is access to education, as Chinese schools require verification of identity for admittance and continued schooling. In China, every citizen must be registered under a household registration system called hukou. Chinese law stipulates that a child born in China is entitled to citizenship if either parent is a Chinese citizen. However, since registering a child would expose the identity of the mother, Chinese men who have had children with North Korean women are faced with an awful choice. They can register their child at the risk of exposing their mothers, who could be arrested and repatriated to North Korea as “illegal” economic migrants, or they can decide not to register the child—leaving the child without access to education. When both parents are North Koreans, it is impossible for a child to obtain hukou.

Children of North Korean women face different treatment in different districts in Yanbian. Practices are often harsh: in many districts, officials routinely arrest and repatriate North Korean women found to be living with Chinese men in their districts. Although the law does not explicitly require it, some also refuse to allow the registration of half-North Korean children as Chinese citizens unless and until their mothers have been arrested and repatriated to North Korea. In one exceptional case, the authorities in a small district began allowing in 2007 the registration of half-North Korean children as Chinese citizens without requiring documentation about their mothers.

The Chinese government’s policy of arresting and repatriating North Korean women who have children with Chinese men violates China’s obligations under both domestic and international law. Such women leave their country for various reasons, including hunger and political persecution. North Korea considers leaving without state permission an act of treason and harshly punishes those who are forcibly repatriated. Returnees face arbitrary detention, torture and other mistreatment, and sometimes even the death penalty. This strong risk of persecution means many North Korean migrants become entitled to protection as refugees.

Repatriating North Koreans in circumstances in which their life or freedom could be threatened at home is a violation of the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (Refugee Convention), while separating children from their mothers (by repatriating the mothers to North Korea) is a violation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). China is a party to both of these treaties. Currently, China does not allow the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) access to North Koreans in Yanbian to determine their refugee status…….

Human Trafficking Thrives Across N.Korea-China Border

Posted by Author on March 3, 2008


The Chosun Ilbo, South Korea, Mar.3,2008-

A 26-year-old North Korean woman, Mun Yun-hee crossed the Duman or Tumen River into China in the dawn of Oct. 22 last year, which at that point was some 40 m wide, guided by a human trafficker. She was being sold to a single middle-aged Chinese farmer into a kind of indentured servitude-cum-companionship. Both of them wore only panties, having stored their trousers and shoes in bags, because if you are found wearing wet clothes across the river deep at night, it is a dead giveaway that you are a North Korean refugee.

Mun was led to a hideout, and the agent left. Asked why she crossed the river, she replied, “My father starved to death late in the 1990s, and my mother is blind from hunger.” Her family owed 300 kg of corns, beans and rice and sold herself for the sake of her blind mother and a younger brother. The middleman paid her 350 yuan, or W46,000 (US$1=W939), equivalent to half of the grain debt.

A Chosun Ilbo news team became the first in the world to see the scale of human trafficking in the China-North Korea border. The exodus in the famines of the latter half of the 1990s has degraded into blatant human trafficking. In the 10 months since May, 2007, the team witnessed the lives of North Korean refugees in five countries: China, Russia, Japan, the U.S. and Britain. In China, the refugees live day and night in fear of deportation to the North and poverty.

“I was first sold to a 34-year-old Chinese man in Shandong Province. Six months later, public security officers arrested me one day at midnight. Asked how, they said on a notification by a neighbor,” Mun said.

She was immediately sent to Dandong prison, from where a group of North Korean detainees were deported to Shinuiju chained two and two. There, she was thrown into a North Korean State Safety and Security Agency camp for a month. “They took a quantity of blood to check possible venereal disease. Undressing the women, they checked even inside the sexual organs with gloved hands,” Mun recalled.

If you repeat sit-and-stand 20 times, you vomit up everything you have eaten. Male inmates are forced to strike their heads against the steel door and beaten with clubs when they resist. Pregnant inmates were forced to miscarry on the grounds they were bearing Chinese children. “The meals of corns with one side dish served were so poor that we longed for the meals we were given by the Chinese prison.” Transferred to an escapees camp in Chongjin, North Hamgyeong Province, she was released after a stint of hard labor in 17-hour shifts.

Several months later, now 25, she again entrusted her body to a trafficker.

An officer from the Durihana Mission, an organization assisting North Korean refugees, asked her, “We won’t sell you to a Chinese. Will you go to South Korea?” Without hesitation, she replied, “I’ll go back to the Chinese man who bought me first. I want to live with him, eating plenty and earning money, and send money to my family at home.” For the benefit of her blind old mother and younger brother, she opted to stay in China, risking another deportation. The Durihana Mission officer, failing to persuade her into going to the South, bid her farewell after buying her a few pieces of winter clothes.

The title given to North Korean refugees until the early 1990s was “hero defector.” Symbolized by Lee Woong-pyung, a North Korean air force officer who flew a MIG fighter jet to South Korea in 1983 and died of cancer in 2002, hero defectors offered the South Korean government meaningful information and were used as a propaganda tool for the superiority of our system. Then, in the latter half of the 1990s, famines hit the North. The food shortages, described by the North Korean regime as “the Hardship March”, claimed an estimated 3 million lives. The exodus to China followed. North Koreans crossed the border to escape from hunger braving strict patrols by the Chinese border police. The food shortage has moderated in the past decade, but the flow of North Korean refugees never ended. North Koreans who have come to the South now number more than 10,000, and an estimated 40,000 North Koreans live in third countries including China.

North Korean refugees in China are officially illegal migrants. They enjoy no legal protection, and when discovered they are deported to North Korea. With the political thaw expanding throughout Northeast Asia, “hero defectors” have become “new arrivals” in search of a new life. With China, North Korea and South Korea almost equally unconcerned about them, the rights of North Korean refugees in third countries, are thoroughly trampled down.

New York’s Chinese Flood Clinton’s Coffers With Cash

Posted by Author on October 21, 2007


By Peter Nicholas and Tom Hamburger, Los Angeles Times, Via Seattle Times, U.S, October 20, 2007-

NEW YORK — Something remarkable happened at 44 Henry St., a grimy Chinatown tenement with peeling walls. It also happened nearby at an apartment building with trash bins clustered by the front door.

And again not far away, at 88 E. Broadway beneath the Manhattan bridge, where vendors chatter in Mandarin and Fujianese as they hawk rubber sandals and bargain-basement clothes.

All three locations, along with scores of others in some of the poorest Chinese neighborhoods in Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx, have been swept by an extraordinary impulse to shower money on one particular presidential candidate: Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Dishwashers, waiters and others whose jobs and dilapidated homes seem to make them unpromising targets for political fundraisers are pouring $1,000 and $2,000 contributions into Clinton’s campaign treasury. In April, a single fundraiser in an area long known for gritty urban poverty yielded $380,000. When Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., ran for president in 2004, he received $24,000 from Chinatown.

At this point in the presidential campaign cycle, Clinton has raised more money than any candidate in history. Those dishwashers, waiters and street-stall hawkers are part of the reason. And Clinton’s success in gathering money from Chinatown’s least-affluent residents stems from a two-prong strategy: mutually beneficial alliances with powerful groups and appeals to the hopes and dreams of people consigned to the margins.

Clinton has enlisted the aid of Chinese neighborhood associations, especially those representing recent immigrants from Fujian province. The organizations, at least one of which is a descendant of Chinatown criminal enterprises that engaged in gambling and human trafficking, exert enormous influence over immigrants. The associations help them with everything from protection against crime to obtaining green cards.

Many of Clinton’s Chinatown donors said they had contributed because leaders in neighborhood associations told them to. In some cases, donors said they felt pressure to give.

The other piece of the strategy involves holding out hope that, if Clinton becomes president, she will move to reunite families and help those in the country illegally move toward citizenship. As New York’s junior senator, Clinton has expressed support for immigrants and greater family reunification.

As with other campaigns looking for dollars in unpromising places, the Clinton operation also has accepted what it later conceded were improper donations. At least one reported donor denies making a contribution. Another admitted to lacking the legal-resident status required for giving campaign money.

Clinton aides said they were concerned about some of the Chinatown contributions.

“We have hundreds of thousands of donors. We are proud to have support from across New York and the country from many different communities,” campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson said. “In this instance, our own compliance process flagged a number of questionable donations and took the appropriate steps to be sure they were legally given. In cases where we couldn’t confirm that, the money was returned.”

The Los Angeles Times examined more than 150 donors who provided checks to Clinton after fundraising events geared to the Chinese community. One-third of those donors could not be found using property, telephone or business records. Most have not registered to vote, according to public records.

And several dozen were described in financial reports as holding jobs that normally would make it difficult to donate amounts ranging from $500 to the legal maximum of $2,300 per election.

Of 74 residents of New York’s Chinatown, Flushing, the Bronx or Brooklyn called or visited, only 24 could be reached for comment.

Many said they gave to Clinton because they were instructed to do so by local association leaders. Some said they wanted help on immigration concerns. And several spoke of the pride they felt by being associated with a powerful figure such as Clinton.

Beyond what it reveals about campaign fundraising, Chinatown’s newfound role in the 2008 election cycle marks another chapter in the centuries-old American saga of marginalized ethnic groups and newly arrived immigrants turning to politics to improve their lot.

Like many who traveled this path, most of the Chinese reported as contributing to Clinton’s campaign have never voted. Many speak little or no English. Some seem to lead such ephemeral lives that neighbors say they have never heard of them.

“This is a new game,” said Peter Kwong, a professor at Hunter College in New York who studies Chinatown communities. Historically, Kwong said, “voting in Chinatown is so weak” that politicians did not go out of their way to court residents. “Today it is all about money,” he said.

The effort is especially pronounced among groups in the Fujianese community. More than a decade ago, Fujianese cultural associations ran gambling operations and, more ominously, at least one was home to a gang that trafficked in illegal Fujianese immigrants.

While Konrad Motyka of the FBI’s New York field office is wary of the havoc wreaked in the past by Fujianese organized crime, he said: “I welcome signs that the community is participating in politics.”

Campaign officials note that Clinton has sponsored legislation aimed at family reunification; the proposals failed. And immigration measures being discussed in Congress would assign a lower priority to family reunification, which tends to bring in poor people, and give preference to immigrants with more-lucrative job skills.

A key figure helping to secure Asian support for Clinton is a woman named Chung Seto, who came to this country as a child from Canton province and has supported Bill and Hillary Clinton since the 1990s. She called Fujianese support for Hillary Clinton the beginning of civic engagement for an immigrant group long on the periphery.

She said she stationed translators at the entrance of one event to try to screen out improper contributions.

Qun Wu, 37, a waiter in a Chinese restaurant in Flushing, saw a reference to a Clinton fundraiser in a Chinese-language newspaper. He took a day off from work to go. Although he makes only $500 a week, he considers his $1,000 donation money well-spent. He got his picture taken with Clinton, hung it prominently in his house and had color reprints made and sent to family in China.

“Every day I go home and see it,” he said. “I see my picture with Hillary and I feel encouraged. It’s a great honor.”

Risk of Torture Has Canada Reconsidering Move To Deport Chinese Gugitive Lai Changxing

Posted by Author on September 21, 2007


ROD MICKLEBURGH, The Globe And Mail, Canada, September 19, 2007-

VANCOUVER — The federal government is going back to the drawing board in its long, costly fight to have high-profile Chinese fugitive Lai Changxing returned to China to stand trial, despite the continuing use of torture in the country.

Immigration Canada spokeswoman Shakila Manzoor confirmed yesterday that the issue of Mr. Lai’s deportation is being turned over again to a ministry officer for a second assessment of the risk he faces back in China.

The first review by the ministry found that Mr. Lai did not face an appreciable risk of harm.

That decision, however, was overturned earlier this year by Mr. Justice Yves de Montigny of the Federal Court of Canada, who ruled that diplomatic assurances from China that Mr. Lai will not be tortured cannot be relied upon.

Judge de Montigny called the immigration officer’s unqualified acceptance of China’s promise “patently unreasonable,” given the widespread existence of torture in the Chinese criminal justice system.

Ms. Manzoor said Immigration Canada has now decided to abandon its appeal of the landmark court decision.

“A new pre-removal risk assessment officer will be assigned,” she said, declining further comment.

The news left Mr. Lai feeling weary of the seemingly endless legal fight to have him deported on charges of masterminding a lavish smuggling and bribery ring in the raucous port city of Xiamen.

Since his arrest by Canadian immigration authorities in 1999, he has argued consistently that he is a victim of changing political winds.

He says he cannot get a fair trial, he faces torture or worse in prison, and he should therefore be allowed to stay in Canada, where he has lived peacefully for the past eight years.

“This case has been going on so long, it seems to be going in circles,” the normally jovial Mr. Lai told a news conference yesterday.

“I was expecting a better result to have happened sooner. I am feeling very tired.”

Mr. Lai’s lawyer, David Matas, said he believes “any fair-minded, independent officer” will conclude that his client would be at risk in China and should not be deported.

“In fact, one has to question whether anyone can be sent back to China, because of the use of torture there.”

Asked whether allowing Mr. Lai to stay might mean Canada becoming a haven for Chinese criminals, Mr. Matas said that the situation puts pressure on China to reform, adding that Mr. Lai’s alleged crimes breached regulations, rather than clear moral matters such as murder.

“If China had a proper legal system, Mr. Lai would not be here.

“He would have gone back and faced trial long ago. The problem is China’s. Blaming us for China’s problem is misplaced,” Mr. Matas said.

Mr. Lai’s status is an irritant at the highest level of Canada-China relations, and the latest twist caused at least one Chinese newspaper to disparage Canada’s legal system.

“Those Chinese who are expecting to see Lai Changxing repatriated will be disappointed again,” said The Global Times. “The extradition, which is generally completed within two years in other countries, can be delayed for decades in Canada.

“All the assessments made by Canadian immigration on his repatriation have just become waste paper.”

Mr. Matas said that the Federal Court decision orders a new risk-assessment officer to make a far more thorough review of the risk of torture, and also consider a proper monitoring system to ensure Mr. Lai’s safety, if he is sent back for trial.

In that event, he said an unprecedented diplomatic agreement would be needed between Canada and China.

The agreement should include such safeguards as video recording of all police interrogation sessions, prompt and independent medical examinations, regular outside monitoring of Mr. Lai’s treatment in prison, and the right of Canadian diplomats to visit Mr. Lai in prison whenever they choose.

The sweeping nature of these conditions, however, makes it very unlikely China would ever accept them, Mr. Matas added.

“They would mean Mr. Lai would receive protection not available to anyone else in the Chinese prison system. I question whether China would agree to that.”

Canada is already involved in a diplomatic spat with China over Huseyin Celil, a Canadian citizen jailed in China as an alleged terrorist. Canadian diplomats have been denied consular access to Mr. Celil, who was born in China, because Chinese authorities do not recognize him as a Canadian.

Mr. Lai, meanwhile, has been freed from his previous curfew, and has found time to do some travelling to Calgary and Toronto. He also proudly displayed a newly acquired driver’s licence to reporters.

NZ: Urgent – Grave Concerns Chinese Man Deportation Tomorrow

Posted by Author on September 11, 2007


Press Release, Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, Via Scoop.co.nz, New Zealand,Tuesday, 11 September 2007-

The Australian government intends to remove this man “DP” to China tomorrow despite a UN human Rights Committee request to stay this removal pending their investigation.

This man has been in Australia for 10 years, 4 years in detention. His visa has been cancelled on the basis of an unsigned, undated Chinese Arrest warrant which would be dismissed in an Australian court.

* No identity confirmation

While the name on this warrant is the same as that of DP, the man held in the Australian detention centre, there is no corresponding data matching such as date of birth, address, occupation, educational level to prove that this man with a family name in the fourth most common name group amongst over one billion people, is the same man. An internal memo from the immigration department says of the conflicting address information – “Not an exact match, but clearly in the neighbourhood”. The Chinese Interpol “fail to give a date of birth for the man they are seeking.”

* No execution assurance received

In public correspondence, the Immigration department states that they have received assurances that this man will not be executed upon return. In an internal memo, “DIMA in Confidence” memo, dated 17 March 2006, an officer in the Removals Support Section DIAC Canberra writes “We have not been involved with the Chinese Embassy to secure an assurance that Mr Qi would be subject to the death penalty on his return and ‘were not aware that was an issue.’ ”

* No extradition treaty

Australia has no extradition treaty with China precisely because we do not trust their judicial system which is corrupt and arbitrary yet we are prepared to send DP back to a so-called assurance that he will not be executed. DP is a Catholic from a Catholic family and as religious persecution is rife in China, he was subject to the brutality of this persecution which precipitated his family getting him out of China. He arrived in Australia and was granted a business visa. The department has since ‘lost his entry documents’, removing the possibility of further identification with the Chinese exit information.

* No confirmation of crime

The department is preparing to send DP back to possible execution when there is no evidence that DP is the man wanted by the Chinese government for a serious crime. DP is highly respected by all who have met him, fellow detainees, visitors and guards alike. He has used his English skills to support and assist the Chinese detainees in Baxter, many of whom had no English and no interpreters were available. Those who know him cannot reconcile the man they have known for 4 years with the information that he is supposed to be a criminal.

Until now Australia has respected the requests of the United Nations Human Rights Committee albeit sometimes belatedly. On the last occasion a man was brought back from Dubai when pressed by the UN because of fears that he would be executed upon arrival in his country of origin.

* Breach of Conventions

“To send this man to China against the UN request would place Australia in breach of the International Conventions and put us alongside those human rights violating countries who have no standing and respect in the world community” says Pamela Curr of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC). “Does this government want to go into an election with blood on its hands?”
