Hold CCP and HK government officials accountable for their alleged crimes
Updated: Oct 24, 2020
The world is increasingly demanding real and significant changes from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Hong Kong (HK) government!
We suggest having an MBC referendum in HK to define the will of the HK people. The results of such a referendum must then be acted upon to negate CCP's breach of the international treaty, the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration On the Question of Hong Kong ('Joint Declaration'). Under the Joint Declaration HK is supposed to have a 'high degree of autonomy' - uphold the Joint Declaration and let HKers decide for themselves!
As HK people are waiting for USA, UK, EU or anyone else to bring criminal allegations against officials to any international Court, such as the International Criminal Court (ICC), it means that we are still putting ourselves into the trusted hands of politicians!
Instead of waiting for someone else to take a case to ICC, we suggest HK people take their legal cases to a people’s tribunal which could resolve alleged crimes of officials of the CCP and HK government in HK protests dating back as far as June 2019.
A people's tribunal could replace or be an addition to an independent 'Commission of Inquiry' into the HK government and Police since June 2019.
The present crisis is not just about the current political system in HK - it is increasingly about we the United Peoples of Earth! For example, youth movements across Asia such as 'milk tea alliance' are growing - we need timely resolutions of these mass peaceful protests.
Serious criminal allegations against HK Chief Executive (CE) Carrie Lam and other senior HK government officials includes:
Treason because of Carrie Lam's failings to uphold HK's international treaty the Joint Declaration, the independence of the judiciary and the rule OF law. CE and all senior HK government officials are being paid their salaries and benefits by HK's Public Purse. A full list of their criminal acts needs to be created;
Domestic terrorism, entrapment in HK, premeditated abduction, torture and other cruel treatment or punishment of HK people in the case of the recent arrest of 12 HKers at sea in China #SAVE12HKYOUTHS. A full list of their criminal acts needs to be created;
UN special rapporteurs' letter to China dated 28 June 2019, alleged inappropriate use of disproportionate force and judicial processes, arbitrary arrests, violated human rights of peaceful assembly and other acts. Carrie Lam and other senior HK government and CCP officials could face serious allegations of criminal liability. A full list of their criminal acts needs to be created;
UN special rapporteurs' letter to China dated 29 January 2020, alleged inappropriate use of chemical agents during demonstrations from June to December of 2019 in HK. Carrie Lam and other senior HK government and CCP officials could face serious allegations of criminal liability. A full list of their criminal acts needs to be created;
UN special rapporteurs' letter to China dated 19 February 2020, serious concerns about the "harassment, intimidation and arrests" of healthcare workers and first-aiders during HK's anti-government protests, as well as police delaying treatment for injured demonstrators. UN asked for details as to the legal basis for such arrests and detentions, and how they are consistent with the authorities' obligations under international human rights law. Carrie Lam and other senior HK government and CCP officials could face serious allegations of criminal liability. A full list of their criminal acts needs to be created;
UN special rapporteurs' letter to China dated 1 September 2020, alleged the new security law's measures do not conform to China's legal obligations under international law. They also raised serious concerns about its impact on the freedoms that were guaranteed to HK when it was handed back to China from British control in 1997 under the Joint Declaration, and democratic and human rights under the ICCPR and UDHR. "We are particularly troubled that this legislation may impinge impermissibly on the rights to freedom of opinion, expression and of peaceful assembly," they wrote. They added that it ran the "grave risk" of targeting the legitimate activities of political opponents, critics, students, and lawyers among others. Carrie Lam and other senior HK government and CCP officials could face serious allegations of criminal liability. A full list of their criminal acts needs to be created;
CCP's and corrupt HK officials' access to HK Public Purse using the illegitimate Legislative Council as exampled by white elephant projects HK's high-speed rail, Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge and the proposed very costly major reclamation project off Lantau island. In 24 November 2019 District Council elections pro-democratic candidates won a landslide victory; likely 6 September 2020 Legislative Council (LegCo) elections would also have resulted in a majority of LegCo seats for democrats. Therefore, a 'political coup' (illegal under the Basic Law) was announced on 31 July 2020 by Carrie Lam, disguised as maintaining 'social distancing' regulations against global pandemic COVID-19 (despite numbers of new cases less than 2 digits on 6 September 2020) was orchestrated by CCP and HK government officials; unacceptably this political coup has created a delay stalling HK's 2020 Legislative Council elections until to at least 5 September 2021. Pan-democratic politicians and HK majority of people believe the underlying purpose of this political coup is to ensure that the HK Public Purse (which is controlled by LegCo) can be raided at will to pass budget items that CCP and HK government wants, but the majority of HK people do not want. A full list of their criminal acts needs to be created;
Xi Jinping and other senior Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials must also be charged with serious crimes against humanity, including against minorities in Xinjiang, Tibet, Mongolia, Hong Kong, etc.
