“The Chinese government has been accused of establishing at least two undeclared “police stations” in the Netherlands.Dutch media found evidence that the “overseas service stations”, which promise to provide diplomatic services, are being used to try to silence Chinese dissidents in Europe. A spokeswoman for the Dutch foreign ministry said the existence of the unofficial police outposts was illegal. The Chinese foreign ministry has rejected the Dutch allegations. The investigation was sparked by a report entitled Chinese Transnational Policing Gone Wild, by the Spain-based NGO Safeguard Defenders.”
Chinese, Uyghurs, Tibetans and others residing overseas have increasingly felt the reach of CCP and PRC’s transnational repression and there is growing fear. News report of the Chinese government possibly operating special police cells in the foreign embassies and consulates will further feed such fears.
The news from the Netherlands is not an isolated development. Around the same time, there were also reports of the city of Dublin asking for the closure of a Chinese “police station” in Dublin city centre. Similar facilities have been reported in London, Frankfurt and other parts of Europe. Safeguard Defenders has claimed that the PRC/CCP has set up “undeclared police offices” in 30 countries
