BREAKING: China issues Arrest warrant for American citizen living in the U.S.

The Guardian has the details.

Hong Kong police have issued arrest warrants for six pro-democracy activists living in exile, the first time the city’s authorities have used a sweeping new law to target campaigners living outside Hong Kong.

They include Samuel Chu, an American citizen who lives in the US, Nathan Law, a prominent campaigner who recently relocated to the UK after fleeing Hong Kong, and Simon Cheng, a former British consular staffer who was granted asylum in the UK after alleging he was tortured in China.

Chinese state media reported that the six men were wanted for “incitement to secession and collusion with foreign forces”.

This is despicable conduct by a dictatorial Beijing leadership. Yet we await the country’s apologists to tell us this decision is required to protect the country’s domestic safety needs.

Baloney.
