Jan 03, 2017 Culture Comments Off on Vietnam’s deportation of Taiwanese suspects to China regrettable: MOFA
Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Tuesday it was regrettable that Vietnam had decided to send four Taiwanese fraud suspects to China instead of back to Taiwan.
The four Taiwanese were arrested by Vietnamese police in the northeastern port city of HaiPhong in late December on suspicion of telecommunications fraud, according to the MOFA.
When Taiwan's representative office in Vietnam was informed of the situation, it began negotiations with Vietnamese authorities to have the four suspects sent back to Taiwan for investigation, the ministry said.
Beijing, however, demanded that the suspects be handed over to China on the grounds that all the alleged fraud victims were Chinese nationals, and it also sought to prevent Taiwanese officials from visiting the suspects, according to the MOFA.
Yielding to strong pressure from Beijing, the Vietnamese authorities deported the four Taiwanese suspects to China on Jan. 1, which was a regrettable decision, the ministry said.
