Opposition to China’s highest security officials’ candidacy against Interpol heats up

Critics continue to blame China’s Supreme Security officials for the Interpol General Assembly, which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, from November 23 to 25.

China’s candidate, Huhama Castle, is the Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary of the China International Cooperation Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security. He will join the other two athletes and run for two seats in Asia on the 13-member Executive Committee of Interpol.

Former Canada’s Minister of Justice Irwin Cotler accused the Chinese government in an interview with The Epoch Times on November 19.Fifty legislators of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPAC) of China, including him and Senator Marco Rubio Open letter To Interpol to express their concerns.

Kotler accused Beijing of repeatedly abusing Interpol’s red notice, resulting in “subsequent delivery of dissidents who were victims of arbitrary detention, torture and imprisonment.”

He quoted Uighur leader Dolkun Isa. He was arrested in the middle of a speech in the Italian Senate following a red notice issued by China.

Given China’s previous cross-border crackdown abroad in the name of Interpole, former Justice Minister Hu said the election to President Hu’s world police organization “exacerbated China’s already unjustified and unfavorable effects. I just let you do it. ” [The People‚Äôs Republic of China].. “

“Such elections only further undermine the rule-based international order,” Kotler warned.

Canada’s MP Garnet Genuis, also co-signer of the letter, told The Epoch Times on November 19 that Hu’s candidacy for Interpol was “a danger to dissidents against the Chinese Communist Party.” [CCP].. “

Mr. Genuis said Interpol’s role is to promote international cooperation in law enforcement and combat fraud around the world. “Unfortunately, I have seen many times that authoritarian regimes betray international trust and goodwill. Manipulating Interpol’s mechanisms aimed at promoting international peace and justice and making them arbitrary. By twisting towards political purposes, “said a member of parliament.

President Gloria von of the Canada-Hong Kong Link is eligible for a communist Chinese candidate to run for an important post in a global organization like Interpol in an interview with The Epoch Times on November 16. I wondered if it was.

“The Chinese Communist Party itself has caused terrorism, putting China in a terrorist regime,” Fong said. “How can we expect terrorist organizations to fight terrorists? I say there is absurd logic here.”

Fung said CCP candidates are none other than agents being used to penetrate powerful global institutions.

“In the last 20 to 30 years, the CCP has shown a tendency to place agents in international organizations that have found loopholes,” she said. “The government is after global discourse, power, and penetration in all respects.”

China’s former representative at Interpol was Meng Hongwei, who has been president since late 2016. However, according to his wife Grace Meng, when he visited his home country on September 25, 2018, the reason was not revealed. Twelve days later, China declared Meng under investigation for “a serious violation of party discipline and law,” following an AP interview with his wife on the night of October 7, 2018. It was that.

On November 18, Grace Meng accepted the AP interview again and opened her face to the public for the first time. During the meeting, she called the Chinese Communist Party administration a “monster.”
