瑞典華裔法輪功學員與華為諜同囚,或送中Swedish Chinese FalunGong Man Jailed w/ Huawei Spy could be Sent to CN fr. Poland



波蘭最高法院一月十五日推翻初級法院將法輪功學員李志輝送中的判決,李志輝,中國出生,瑞典企業家,被中國告欺詐,但否認指控,聲稱被中國針對皆因支持法輪功,及退出中國共產黨(華沙法新社)。但此案將退回初級法院覆核。李志輝與華為前首席執行官王偉晶關在同一牢房。王偉晶一九年在波蘭被捕,罪名乃係幫中國政府從事間諜活動(Idzpodprad)。這種安排本身或會威脅李志輝生命安全。


李光耀的波蘭代表律師Krzysztof Kitajgrodzki告訴記者:「現階段,這當然是很好的決定,但我們仍然不能稱之為成功。」律師補充:最高法院要求下級法院叫中國解釋李志輝所面對的判決性質。無論法院對此事有何裁決,根據波蘭法律,司法部長對引渡請求有最終決定權。 李志輝接受TVN採訪時話:「如果波蘭將我送中,我實無命!」


根據《...香港...政府與波蘭...政府關於刑事事宜相互法律協助的協定》第十一條:


「移交被羈押的人1.如為根據本協定提供協助而尋求被羈押在被請求方的人在請求方出席,而該人及締約雙方的中心機關對此均亦表同意,則該人須從被請求方暫時移交至請求方,以提供有關的協助。」但「接收方不得要求移送方提出引渡法律程序或任何其他法律程序以送還被移交的人」。協定亦不適用於政治或宗教檢控。

Swedish Chinese Falun Gong activist Locked up w/ Huawei Spy Could be Extradited to China from Poland. By Chapman Chen, HKBNews


The Polish Supreme Court on Jan 15 overturned a lower court’s green light for the extradition of a Chinese-born Swedish entrepreneur named Li Zhihui to China for alleged fraud, a charge he has denied, claiming that he is being targeted for supporting Falun Gong and for quitting the Chinese Communist Party (1). But the case would be returned to a lower court for review. Li has been detained in the same cell as former Huawei CEO Weijing Wang, who was arrested in 2019 inPoland on charges of spying for Beijing (2). This arrangement in itself may pose a threat to Li's life.

“It’s certainly a good decision at this stage, but we still can’t call it a success,” Li's Polish lawyer Krzysztof Kitajgrodzki told reporters, adding that the Supreme Court has required that the lower court ask China to explain the nature of the sentence his client faces. Regardless of any court ruling on the matter, under Polish law the minister of justice has the final say on extradition requests.

"If Poland transfers me to China, I will be killed", said the activist in an interview with TVN.

According to Article 11 of the Agreement between the Hong Kong and Polish Governments concerning mutual assistance in criminal matters, "a person in the custody of the Requesting Party whose presence in the Requested Party is sought for the purposes of assistance under this Agreement shall be temporarily transferred from the Requesting Party to the Requested Party if the person consents and if the Central Authorities of both Parties agree." But "the receiving Party shall not require the sending Party to initiate extradition proceedings or any other proceedings for the return of the person transferred." And the agreement shall not apply to political prosecutions.
