The illegal police stations of communist China in Spain and the silence of Sánchez

The illegal police stations of communist China in Spain and the silence of Sánchez

Silence. That is the public response of the Spanish government to a serious scandal that affects Spain's national sovereignty against communist China.

Communist China has 54 illegal police centers in 30 countries

On September 12, the Madrid-based NGO Safeguard Defenders published an investigation in which he uncovered that the communist dictatorship of China has 54 illegal police centers in 30 countries on 5 continents. These police centers act as police stations in China's Fuzhou and Qingtian counties. The investigation revealed that 230,000 Chinese citizens have been "persuaded" to return to their country by these illegal police centers.

The illegal police stations of communist China in Spain

The Safeguard Defenders research has identified illegal police stations from communist China in four Spanish cities:

  • The Fuzhou County Police has two illegal centers in Madrid, another two in Barcelona and one in Valencia.
  • The Qingtian County Police has an illegal center in Madrid, one in Barcelona, one in Santiago de Compostela and one in Valencia.

Significantly, Spain is the country with the most illegal police stations in communist China (nine in total). Italy, which is the second country with the most illegal Chinese police stations, has four.
The silence of the majority of the Spanish media in the face of this scandal

Interestingly, this investigation has been ignored by many Spanish media outlets, including local media in the aforementioned cities. The existence of illegal police stations of a foreign dictatorship in those localities, apparently, is not a matter of interest to those media. One might wonder how many of the media outlets that have silenced this investigation have advertising contracts with Chinese companies (remember that the Chinese Communist Party has committees in all the large multinationals in the country, which exercise political control over them).

Sánchez's silence and his cordial relations with China and the PCCh

Even more surprising is the absolute silence of the Spanish government of Pedro Sánchez in the face of this scandal. In the month and a half that has elapsed since the publication of that investigation, no member of the coalition government, formed by the socialists of the PSOE and the communists of United We Can, has made no statement in this regard.

The Netherlands demanded the closure of two illegal Chinese police “service stations” in the country.

On Nov. 2, Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, Wopke Hoekstra, posted on Twitter that the ministry has informed the Chinese ambassador that the stations must close immediately.

Human rights NGO, Safeguard Defenders, revealed in its September report that China had set up at least 38 Chinese police “service stations” in dozens of countries across five continents.

In the Netherlands, such stations were found in both Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

According to Hoekstra, no permission has been requested from the Netherlands for the setup of either station. “The Netherlands has asked the Chinese ambassador for full clarification … conducts research into the stations in order to find out their precise activities,” said Hoekstra.

In responding to the order from the Netherlands, the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian insisted that the stations were run by local volunteers from the Chinese community, not police from China.

Transnational Repression

Earlier, the Chinese spokesperson Wang Wenbin responded to the allegation of the overseas police service stations on Oct. 26.

He claimed those were service centers and the purpose is “to help overseas Chinese nationals in need access the platform to have their driving licenses renewed and receive physical examinations.”

Wang Jingyu, a Chinese dissident in Rotterdam, disagreed with Wang’s claim.

Jingyu said, “I have solid and clear evidence to prove it’s a Chinese overseas police station in Rotterdam.”

According to Jingyu, a staff member of the Chinese police service station in Rotterdam has been calling him with an official telephone number dozens of times a day, “He wanted me to turn myself in, to go back to China … threatened me with an officially registered Telegram text.”

“It’s exactly opposite from the Chinese foreign ministry’s claim,” he told the Chinese language edition of The Epoch Times on Oct. 30.

According to the Safeguard Defenders’ report, the overseas policing operation was associated with a Beijing campaign to bring Chinese nationals back to China for fraud and telecommunication fraud investigations.

Previously, Chinese media claimed that 230,000 fraud suspects were successfully “persuaded to return” to China by the overseas police between April 2021 and July 2022.

However, the Safeguard Defenders’ report also indicated that those who were successfully persuaded claimed that “most involved dissidents or individuals that had fled religious and/or ethnic persecution.”

After the exposure of the illegal Chinese police service stations worldwide, the Irish government was the first to order the closure of a Chinese overseas police station.

China doesn't just police inside its borders. China has set up "overseas Chinese police service stations" all around the world to make sure its law enforcement knows reaches every corner of the globe. In this episode of China Uncensored, we look at a report on these stations by the NGO Safeguard Defenders, what the CCP's 110 Overseas police program is all about, and what it's true purpose is.
