Chinese Embassy Spokesperson's Responding to the statement by the Australian Foreign Minister on Cheng Lei
2021/08/13

We firmly oppose the statement by the Australian Foreign Minister on 13 August 2021. China has repeatedly made clear its position on the case concerning Australian citizen Cheng Lei. Chinese judicial authorities handle the case strictly in accordance with law and fully protect the lawful rights of the relevant person. The Australian side should respect China’s judicial sovereignty and refrain from interfering in any form in Chinese judicial authorities’ lawful handling of the case.
