The FBI has FINALLY stopped chasing fake “white nationalists” for a few minutes to shut down a REAL terror group operating in New York City and has made some arrests of the people running the covert Chinese “police station” that tracked and terrorized Chinese citizens and former Chinese citizens for speaking out against Beijing.
This terror network has been running in the U.S.A. for years and no one in the federal government has done a thing about it.
Now the FBI has arrested two men who were reportedly running the covert station controlled by the communist Chinese government in Bejing. The Bureau accused the men of being part of a campaign of transnational repression against Chinese pro-democracy activists and other political opponents around the world.
The pair arrested have been reported as “Harry” Lu Jianwang, 61, and 59-year-old Chen Jinping.
Per the Guardian:
The justice department also announced charges on Monday against 40 MPS officers and four others for allegedly running an internet troll operation against dissidents in the US, creating fake social media accounts to harass them and recruiting an employee at an unnamed US telecoms company to have a pro-democracy activist removed from the platform. The officers, thought to be in China, are alleged to be members of an MPS unit, the “912 special project working group”, dedicated to the pursuit of dissidents abroad.
The alleged secret police station in New York was raided in October, and on Monday morning the FBI arrested two New Yorkers suspected of running it. China has insisted that the New York site and similar offices around the world are run by volunteers and are not connected with the police. Breon Peace, the US attorney for the eastern district of New York, said there was now evidence of direct ties.
“Two miles from our office, just across the Brooklyn Bridge, this nondescript office building in the heart of bustling Chinatown in lower Manhattan had a dark secret until several months ago. An entire floor of this building hosted an undeclared police station of the Chinese national police,” Peace said.
The station provided some Chinese government services, like helping renew driving licenses, but failed to register with the justice department as agents of a foreign government, the charges said.
“More troubling though is the fact that the secret police station appears to have had a more sinister use,” Peace said. “On at least one occasion, an official with the Chinese national police directed one of the defendants, a US citizen who worked at the secret police station, to help locate a pro-democracy activist of Chinese descent living in California. In other words, the Chinese national police appear to be using the station to track a US resident on US soil.”
This operation was no secret. There have been multiple media stories about this terror campaign against those who would speak out against the genocidal Chinese government.
Until now, the FBI and other authorities have ignored it all.
The fact that this outrage existed on U.S. soil, harassing and terrorizing U.S. residents — whether naturalized, or legal citizens — is something that should never have been allowed for ten seconds, much less the years it has been ignored.
