KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — A teenager who says he’s a U.S. permanent resident and his fiancée are once again on the run from the threat of extradition to their homeland, China, in a sign of Beijing’s lengthening reach over perceived dissidents abroad.

Chinese officials had sought Wang Jingyu, a 19-year-old student, over his online comments about deadly border clashes between Chinese and Indian forces last year. He was arrested by plainclothes police in Dubai while transferring for a flight to the U.S. in early April and was held for weeks, in a case that the U.S. Department of State has described as a human rights concern. He said Chinese authorities in Dubai took away his green card.

ChinaAid note:

Bob Fu, PhD., founder, and president of ChinaAid, organized the rescues of both Wang Jingyu, and Wu Huan. Dr. Fu said:

  • The CCP’s direct barbaric threats and arbitrary detention in foreign soils against Wang Jingyu, a United States permanent resident, and Wu Huan, his fiancée, for simply exercising their freedom of speech critically demonstrates the danger the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) poses not only to its citizens but also to the world. The world must:
  • wake up to the reality of the CCP’s overextended long arms,
  • recognize and address its total disregard for the rule of law, as well as 
  • confront, counter, and conquer its ruthless persecution against innocent citizens. 

ChinaAid calls upon the governments of the Netherlands and the United States to take immediate actions to ensure the personal safety of Mr. Wang and Ms. Wu, and protect them from being further harm—by granting their asylum’s request, according to international norms and domestic asylum laws. 

When legally possible and practically viable, ChinaAid will continue to help rescue and protect brave human rights advocates like Mr. Wang and Ms. Wu.
