Beijing forces run-away citizens to return
Those who have left the country out of fear of the Chinese leadership cannot even feel safe outside the country. According to a report by the Spanish-based human rights organization Safeguard Defenders, the communist leadership in Beijing has used extrajudicial coercive measures to force nearly 10,000 Chinese nationals abroad to return to the People's Republic since 2014. The report calls this only the "tip of the iceberg." Under the guise of fighting corruption, Beijing is by no means just taking action against corrupt party cadres, but is also persecuting regime critics in foreign countries.
