Chinese Embassy Spokesperson's Remarks
2020/10/14

The statement by the Australian foreign minister on 14 October 2020 is deplorable. We reject the accusation made in the statement. After due investigation, the Beijing No.2 People's Procuratorate indicted criminal suspect Australian national Yang Jun in the Beijing No. 2 Intermediate People's Court on espionage charges on October 7, 2020. The court has filed and accepted the case according to legal procedures. Relevant Chinese authorities handle the case strictly in accordance with law and fully protect Yang Jun's lawful rights. We urge the Australian side to respect China’s judicial sovereignty and refrain from interfering in the legal process in any form.
