IDIOT BRIT GOVT. SUMMONS CHINESE AMBASSADOR OVER CHINA’S LEGAL ACT WASTING DRUG DEALER

I am surprised that the Brits have already forgotten The Opium Wars. Woo-hoo. They “summon” the Chinese ambassador to lodge a complaint.
And of course the scummy rights groups are wetting their diapers.  The govt. here is greatly concerned at what the Chinese did.

Meanwhile ... RIGHT HERE IN ENGLAND ,,,,,

A father ‘executed’ his four-year-old daughter by shooting her in the head before gunning down the child’s mother and then turning the weapon on himself.

Police officers desperately tried to save the injured child after the shooting this morning but she died in their arms at the scene.

The badly wounded 35-year-old woman, who was also shot in the head, was rushed to hospital where she is now fighting for her life.

Neighbours had called 999 shortly after 10am because they were worried about a domestic dispute.

Officers rushed to the £250,000 house in Aldershot, Hampshire, where they discovered the bloodbath.

Drunkenness, violence and vandalism blight most of Britain, admit officials

Officials running Labour’s campaign against anti-social behaviour believe that most of the country has a major problem.

A Home Office survey found that 73 per cent said drunkenness and rowdiness is a ‘significant problem’ in their area.

More than four out of five believe that teenagers hanging around the streets are also a concern. Seven out of ten cite vandalism and graffiti as a scourge of their district or town.

I’m sorry but there are NO links on these.  I am having continuing problems as there is nothing in the URL window above with an address. It has been happening a lot lately but usually fills in after a short time.  Tonight however, all the window reads is, Google.com.  I can put an address in there, get the page I want, but for some damn reason instead of showing the actual URL, it simply says Google.com.  I’ve never seen that before this week.

Chinese ambassador summoned over execution of Briton Akmal Shaikh

China’s Ambassador in London was summoned to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office today to hear Britain’s “strong condemnation” of her country’s execution of Akmal Shaikh.

Mr Shaikh, a convicted British drug smuggler who is believed to have suffered from bipolar disorder, was killed by lethal injection early today, despite the personal intervention of Gordon Brown in a telephone call to Wen Jiabao, the Chinese Premier.

The execution was condemned by the Prime Minister and David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, with the Foreign Office minister Ivan Lewis declaring that it made him feel “sick to the stomach”.

Mr Lewis met Ambassador Fu Ying to express the Government’s “deep regret” that Beijing refused to examine appeals for clemency.

“I had a difficult conversation with the Chinese ambassador today,” he said.

“I made clear that the execution of Mr Shaikh was totally unacceptable and that China had failed in its basic human rights responsibilities in this case, in particular that China’s court had not considered the representations made about Mr Shaikh’s mental condition.”

Mr Shaikh’s family said that they were “deeply saddened, stunned and disappointed” by the execution.

Mental health campaigners deplored his killing, with one charity describing it as “medieval rough justice”.

The criticism sparked irritation in China, with the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu telling a press briefing in Beijing: “No one has the right to comment on China’s judicial sovereignty.

“It is the common wish of people around the world to strike against the crime of drug trafficking.

“We express our strong dissatisfaction and opposition to the British Government’s unreasonable criticism of the case. We urge the British to correct their mistake in order to avoid harming China-UK relations.”

The Chinese Embassy in London issued a statement insisting that Shaikh had “no previous medical record” of mental illness and that his rights and interests had been properly respected.

The Supreme Court said that the death sentence was the correct judgment in the case and evidence of mental illness was insufficient. Justifying its decision, the Supreme Court said in a statement: “To use the death penalty for extremely threatening and serious crimes involving drugs is beneficial to instilling fear and preventing drug crimes.”

It said no documents provided by the British Embassy or by other organisations as well as by Mr Shaikh himself could prove that he had a mental disorder. “There is no reason to cast doubt on Akmal Shaikh’s mental status.”

CHINA REPLIES

1.)

Statement of the Chinese Embassy on the Case of Akmal Shaikh

Akmal Shaikh was convicted for serious drug trafficking. The amount of heroin he brought into China was 4030g, enough to cause 26800 deaths, threatening numerous families. According to the Chinese law, 50g of heroin is the threshold for death penalty. It is important that the independence of the Chinese judiciary be respected.

During the legal process, Mr. Shaikh’s rights and interests were properly respected and guaranteed and the concerns of the British side were duly noted and taken into consideration by the Chinese judicial authorities. Out of humanitarian consideration, visas were granted to the two cousins of Mr. Shaikh on Boxing Day, and they were given access to meeting Mr. Shaikh inChina.

As for his possible mental illness which has been much talked about, there apparently has been no previous medical record.

Drug trafficking is a grave crime worldwide. InChina, given the bitter memory of history and the current situations, the public has a particular and strong resentment towards it. In a recent web survey, 99% of the public support the decision of the Court.

InChina the conditions are not there for abolishing the death penalty. But it is applied in a cautious manner and limited number, all such cases are reviewed by the Supreme Court.

The legal structures ofChina and UK may be different, but it should not stand in the way of enhancing our bilateral relations on the basis of mutual respect.

2.)

Akmal Shaikh was convicted and sentenced to death penalty for serious drug trafficking on solid evidence. In fact, 150mg of heroin of high degree of purity would be lethal. The amount of heroin he carried was 4030g, enough to cause 26800 deaths. According to Chinese law, 50g of heroin is the threshold for the application of the death penalty. Even in the UK, he would be punished severely for his crime.

Drug trafficking is a grave crime worldwide. China has the bitter memory of drug problems in history, and is still facing severe situations at this moment, which undermines the social stability. The general public has a deep-seated hatred toward it.

China has acceded to United Nations Conventions against Illicit Drug Trafficking. In order to combat drugs, China faithfully honors its obligations under the conventions and cracks down on drug-related crimes. All cases of drug trafficking are dealt with according to law, regardless of nationality. To apply death penalty to the serious drug trafficking is helpful to preempt and prevent the drug trafficking.

The concerns of the British side have been duly noted and taken into consideration by the Chinese judicial authorities in the legal process, and Mr. Shaikh’s rights and interests under Chinese law are properly respected and guaranteed. UK consular officials visited Mr.Shaikh several times in prison and attended relevant trials.

We fully respect the UK and EU’s decision to abolish the death penalty. However, half of the countries in the world still maintain the death penalty. And in China the conditions are not yet met for abolishing the death penalty. And the majority view in China is against such abolition.

Death penalty is applied in a cautious and strictly limited manner. Reforms were introduced to ensure that all death penalty cases are reviewed and approved by the Supreme People’s Court. Such reforms will continue.

This case has been undergoing for more than two years, it is absurd to link it with the issue of Climate Change.
