A China dissident holding a Malaysian passport - a typical case of kautimism
Zhou Yongjun, a former student leader of China's 1989 pro-democracy movement and the first student leader elected to lead the Autonomous Students' Federation of Beijing Universities, has been arrested for the 3rd time by the Chinese government since the June 4, 1989 Tiananmen Square incident.
It was reported in today’s Sin Chew Daily and on OpEdNews an internet news portal that Zhou was detained using a Malaysian passport which bore the name Wang Xingxiang by the Chinese authority while in his attempt to enter
in September, 2008. China
In this case, several answers from Malaysian immigration department are immediately obvious.
Is Zhou’s Malaysian passport genuine?
How did he obtain it?
Does Wang Xingxiang exist?
Are Zhou and Wang Malaysians?
If the Malaysian government fails to explain these questions, I have no doubt our country will again and for the 3rd time find itself blacklisted in the next year’s US State Department Trafficking in Persons report.
