VP Harris says should be UN ‘investigation’, rather than declare Russia committed War Crimes

Horrific photos circulated Wednesday after a maternity and children’s hospital was bombed in the besieged Ukrainian city of Mariupol. Officials said at least three people, including a young girl were killed in the strike.

U.K. armed forces minister James Heappey said Thursday the “indiscriminate” fire by Russia on the health facility “is a war crime.” U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, who has already been chastised for her subpar diplomatic performance in Poland was asked about the crime.

Speaking alongside Poland’s president on Thursday in Warsaw, Harris did admit reference the attack on the hospital and said the world was witnessing “atrocities in unimaginable proportions in Ukraine.” Her words, though, lacked depth and meaning. “We stand with the people of Ukraine” said Harris, saying America has an “ironclad” commitment to defend NATO nations.

When it came to being asked a question of substance, Harris refuses to take a moral stand. When asked if she believed Russia’s actions should be investigated as possible war crimes, she passed the responsibility on to the United Nations.

Saying “when it comes to crimes and violations of international norms” the U.S. is “clear that any intentional attack on innocent victims is a violation.” She added the United Nations has an established process to determine whether war crimes have been committed and “absolutely there should be an investigation. The eyes of the world are on this war and what Russia has done.”

Russian officials made an unbelievable claim that the hospital was not a children’s or maternity hospital, but an extremist base.

“It is not the first time we have seen pathetic outcries concerning the so-called atrocities” by Russia, Lavrov said, claiming the hospital was being used as a base by an “ultra-radical” Ukrainian battalion. He said Russia had submitted data to the United Nations “days ago” to prove its claim, and accused foreign media of manipulating information on the strike. Lavrov claimed no patients or staff had been at the facility, which he insisted had “long ago become a base for extremists.”

Zelensky said “this topic was mentioned on Russian TV, but not a word of truth was said. The Russians were lied to that there had been no patients in the hospital and no women or children ion the maternity hospital.”

“The Russian were lied to that ‘nationalists’ had allegedly taken up positions there. They lie confidently, as always” said Zelensky.

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.
