Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks
2020/12/23

Reuters: Australian national Yang Jun said in a letter to friends that he had suffered "torture", interrogations and a lot of "verbal abuse" during dentition in Beijing. Do you have a comment?

Zhao Lijian: We have stated China's position on the case of Yang Jun many times. The case is now in the process of first instance trial. In China, a country with rule of law, judicial authorities handle cases independently. Yang Jun's lawful rights are fully protected. The alleged "torture" and "abuse" is simply non-existent.
