Open Letter to China's Minister of State Security,
His Excellency Geng Huichang
I do not wish to interfere in the internal
affairs of the People's Republic of China, but just to inform you of a matter
that may be of interest to you.
At about 1445 Hours on 15 July 2010 (New Zealand Time), I saw on the television
programme "France 2 - Le Journal" (shown on the Stratos channel)
four women in China holding onto a man and forcing him into a car. I am sure
that it must be illegal in China for private individuals to kidnap someone
and force him into a car against his will. French journalists were either
accomplices to this criminal act or know the identity of the accomplices and/or
perpetrators of the act.
The French so-called "news" (i.e. propaganda) item was about men
in China who allegedly have a minor wife, in addition to their main wife,
and the four women were allegedly taking the man away from his minor wife
and back to his main wife. The arrogance of some people in Western countries
with respect to sexual customs is amazing, and this event must surely constitute
interference in the internal affairs of China -- albeit on a minor scale.
My opinion on this matter is perhaps of no interest to Your Excellency,
but I consider that the People's Republic of China might want to take steps
to punish the foreign media concerned and to prevent foreign news media from
encouraging or giving favourable publicity to illegal acts in your country.
