British Foreign Secretary expresses concern over trial of Hong Kong fugitives in China

The British Foreign Secretary said on Monday that he was deeply concerned about the trial of fugitives from Hong Kong in China and called on Beijing to ensure that the country’s justice system was fair and transparent.

According to ISNA, according to Reuters, 10 Hong Kong people were arrested after tracking the boat they were riding on the way to Taiwan’s Democratic Island and are now in a Chinese court facing charges such as crossing the border illegally.

“We are deeply concerned that the members of this group were tried in secret today and were informed only three days before the trial,” said Dominique Robb. He added that British diplomats had been denied access to the court.

Rob continued: “The group has not had access to the lawyers of their choice, which raises more serious questions about access to legal advice in China.” We expect China to uphold the rule of law and to conduct trials in a fair and transparent manner.
