Human rights advocate: China’s secret police have infiltrated American territory.

According to a human rights advocate, China’s reported abroad police service centers and their efforts to get people to return home represent a risky expansion of the regime’s global influence.

An investigation last month describing a Chinese strategy to combat “fraud and telecom fraud” offences committed by its people living overseas was published by Safeguard Defenders, a pan-Asian human rights organization. According to the study, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has opened at least 54 police stations in 30 different nations, including the United States.

Campaign manager for Safeguard Defenders Laura Harth told Fox News, “I think it demonstrates how brazen the CCP is become and how little concern they have for other governments.” It is against territorial sovereignty and against international law.

According to the research, the police stations are largely found in Western Europe, but four are in North America, including one in New York City. According to Hart, they permit Chinese officials to “conduct out policing activities on foreign land.”


This, according to Harth, “clearly demonstrates how clueless and naive some governments are, or choose to be, at this stage.” “European authorities are seriously undereducated and unwilling to act on or even investigate it.”

230,000 Chinese nationals have been “persuaded to return” home to face criminal prosecution since the campaign’s April 2021 debut, according to the Chinese Ministry of Public Security.

According to Harth, “a significant component of this global policing repression operation also aims to silence the community, silence opposition, and make sure that people are sufficiently terrified.”

Threatening and frightening relatives in China is one reportedly utilized strategy to get Chinese nationals to return. A suspect’s family’s bank accounts may be frozen, their property may be seized, and their children may be prohibited from going to school.


Suspects in telecoms scams are brought back to China from Cambodia as the CCP cracks down on fraud committed by its citizens overseas.

They might detain them and question them, according to Harth. “Additionally, guilt by implication exists. There are reports of persons being detained or prosecuted for the alleged offenses committed against their relatives “abroad.

China will “truly do whatever” to urge them to convince their family members to return, she continued. For the CCP, “nothing appears to be too remarkable or too cruel.”

If such strategies don’t work, the CCP will send one of its international officers to confront the suspect and try to “persuade” him or her, according to Harth.

That sends a loud and clear message to anyone looking to leave China or who has already done so: You are not secure anyplace.
Despite risk to its international reputation, China still benefits from its relationship with Russia, according to experts
According to Harth, who spoke to Fox News, China’s alleged extradition operations are carried out without the local government’s knowledge or consent.

China's reported overseas police stations are located across 30 countries, including one in New York City.
