China Won’t Kill Lai March 15, 2007

Posted by David in China.

In an earlier post I wrote that Canada is a favourite place for Chinese crooks to hide from China.

In a Xinhua (14-03-2007) report it was written that “China promised not to sentence accused smuggler Lai Changxing to death because this was essential to have him repatriated from Canada.”

Now the question is whether or not Canada will believe the Communist government of China, and return the fugitive.

“Lai, who fled with his wife and children, was accused of being the mastermind behind the country’s largest smuggling ring. He fled to Canada in 1999 and remains there. China wants to bring him back to face charges of smuggling, bribery and tax evasion.”

My guess is that as long as someone (a democratic state) is keeping an “eye on things” China will not execute Lai. However, if he’s handed over and forgotten he will most likely disappear.
