U.N. puts dangerous Iranian regime on Women’s Rights Commission

If there is ever a moment to see the true hypocrisy of the United Nations and it’s failed mission on human rights all one needs to do is look at the decision made this past week to put the extremist cult like regime of Iran on its Women’s Rights Commission.

What makes this far worse, is that allegedly the United States, along with possibly other western nations, voted to include Iran, as well. It is impossible, however, to know for certain due to the secret vote that took place to put Iran on the commission.

Moreover, the United States under President Joe Biden’s administration, has remained eerily quiet on the matter and has not spoken out – nor did it protest the action, according to Voice of America. Many human right’s activists have expressed outrage over the decision.

The result of the secret ballot also has been met with silence from the U.S.

In Tuesday’s vote, 43 of the 54 nations in the U.N.’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) elected Iran to the Commission on the Status of Women for a four-year term beginning next year. The commission is the U.N.’s principal intergovernmental body dedicated to “the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.”

Iran received the smallest number of votes of the five nations elected to the body. Of the other four elected nations, China and Japan were already commission members while Lebanon and Pakistan will be new additions. Iran currently is not a member of the commission.

Iran’s poor record on women’s rights was under fire at the world body as recently as last month.

Voice of America

Masih Alinejad, an Iranian human rights activist, warned on Twitter of the horrors women are subjected to under the Iranian regime.

“Look at her face,” she tweeted, showing a photo of a young Iranian woman who was disfigured with acid by those accusing her of wearing her hijab (head covering) inappropriately. “This week the U.N. Elected those who three acid on her face for wearing ‘inappropriate hijab’ to its top Women’s Rights Commission. Women of my country Iran are disappointed at the U.N. Don’t legitimize a misogynist regime.”

This administration should be ashamed of itself for not standing up for human rights and dignity. But then again, the only thing this administration appears to be concerned with when it comes to Iran, is reinstating the failed Iranian nuclear deal established under President Obama and rescinded by President Trump. At least, that’s my opinion on the matter.

REPORT: China has vast network of covert police stations around the world

China has a vast network of covert police stations abroad, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. These police stations serve consular functions, but are also used by China to crack down on what the CCP deems “illegal” activity of Chinese nationals abroad. The police stations include at least 38 run by the Fuzhou City police, and 22 run by the Qingtian City police. Cities housing these police stations include New York, Toronto (which has three stations), London (two), Paris (three), Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.

Key findings of the report are below.

“Persuaded to return”

According to China, China has “persuaded to return [to China]” 230,000 Chinese nationals living aboard from April 2021 to July 2022 alone to face charges of fraud and telecommunications fraud. A Yangxia police station set up in Mozambique, for example, persuaded a Chinese national to return to China after being accused of stealing money from his employer. Chinese authorities also put pressure on the accused family to convince the accused to surrender.

Roughly 54,000 Chinese nationals were persuaded to return from northern Myanmar alone, in the first nine months of 2021. In July 2022, the government of Wenchang City warned that its citizens living in northern Myanmar must check in with their local police stations or face multiple penalties including blocking their children from attending urban schools back in China. Similarly, in February 2022, the government of Liayang City stated that Chinese “illegally staying” in northern Myanmar must return or the bank accounts of their immediate family members could be frozen.

The Nine Forbidden Countries

China has claimed that nine countries contain serious levels of fraud and telecom fraud perpetrated by Chinese nationals. Since November 2021, China has declared that Chinese citizens living in these nine countries must return to China immediately unless they have an “emergency reason” or a “strict necessity” to travel or stay in those countries. Those countries are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the UAE, and Turkey. However, the report questions whether these countries are truly awash in such fraud, as most of China’s oversees police stations are in the West, and only one of the nine countries (Cambodia) has such a police station. Chinese staying in the nine forbidden countries, as well as threats to family members as stated above, creates a “guilt-by-association” atmosphere intended to repatriate the Chinese nationals.

Conclusion

According to the report, Chinese police stations abroad serve to bypass “bilateral extradition treaties or other mechanisms of judicial cooperation” to cooperate with CCP-linked NGOs which effectively “[sets] up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries.” Instead of using international judicial cooperation, which establishes due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair trial, China uses the above “persuade-to-return” methods and transnational police stations to circumvent international law and coerce Chinese nationals to return to China for trials. These policies show the power of China’s long-arm oppression over its own subjects.
