今日(11月30日),被「中國國安惡法」通緝的香港公開大學學生劉康,致函印度外務大臣蘇濟生(Subrahmanyam Jaishankar),呼籲印度鑑於香港公民自由受侵犯,而加強制裁香港與中國政府,並停止香港引渡協議。

劉康在信裏認為,與香港政府的引渡協議嚴重威脅港僑、海外臺灣人、世上支持自由的人。他表示,他表示,香港政府嚴重侵犯公民自由,恨多香港人遭政治迫害,而「中國國安惡法」導致更多人出於政治原因遭拘捕、控告、監禁,又導致很多香港人流亡。他又指,就算身於香港及中國以外,「中國國安惡法」適用於任何人,只要勇於批評香港及中國政府,包括印度人。他提到,朱牧民(Samuel Chu)雖為美國公民,但亦被「中國國安惡法」通緝。

他援引,很多英聯邦(Commonwealth of Nations)國家已停止香港引渡協議,包括英國、澳洲、加拿大、新西蘭。他希望印度作為英聯邦一份子,亦會停止香港引渡協議。

他感謝印度限制了一些不安全的中國公司及產品,包括華為、抖音、微信,因為這些公司可能有可疑目的,並偷偷地傳送用戶數據給中國政府。他又請求印度進一步限制威脅到自由的中國公司,以防中國政府殘害自由世界。他又呼籲,印度制裁侵犯人權的港、中官員,包括經濟上限制及禁止旅遊,因為人權是重要國際準則。

Dr. Subrahmanyam Jaishankar
External Affairs Minister of India
By email to [email protected]
30th November 2020

Dear External Affairs Minister of India,

Following similar actions of countries which value democracy as much as India, I, as a Hong Kong democratic activist, would like to extend an invitation to India to suspend the extradition treaty with the Hong Kong tyrannous regime, and impose more sanctions against the Hong Kong and Chinese tyrannical regimes, considering the interests of civil liberty and democracy.

Any extradition treaty with the Hong Kong totalitarian regime is a serious threat to Hongkongers overseas, Taiwanese people overseas, and freedom supporters of the world. The Hong Kong and Chinese regimes have blatantly violated civil liberty in Hong Kong. Numerous Hongkongers have suffered political persecution. In addition, the imposition of oppressive China’s National Security Law has resulted in more politically motivated arrests, prosecutions, imprisonments, and has caused many Hongkongers to flee from the homeland.

Several democratic activists abroad are wanted under oppressive China’s National Security Law, including Samuel Chu, a United States citizen, and myself. Despite being outside Hong Kong and China, oppressive China’s National Security Law still applies to staunch supporters of freedom of speech around the globe, who possess great courage to criticise the Hong Kong and Chinese regimes, including the people from India.

Many countries in the Commonwealth of Nations, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, have already suspended their extradition treaties with the Hong Kong regime. I sincerely hope that India, being one of the most prominent Commonwealth countries, would also suspend the extradition treaty with the Hong Kong regime.

Besides that, as many Chinese companies are controlled by the Chinese regime, I am thankful for the wise decision of India to have imposed restrictions on particular Chinese companies, including restricting the development of the Huawei mobile network, and banning Tiktok and Wechat, all of which probably serve the suspicious aims of the Chinese regime, and secretly send user data to the Chinese regime. In the interests of democracy and safety, I would like to ask India to impose more restrictions on particular
Chinese companies which are considered to be threats to freedom, as a portion of sanctions against the Chinese regime, so as to deter it from subverting the liberal world.

The United States government, as an important ally of India as well as Hongkongers, has imposed sanctions on particular Hong Kong and Chinese officials, including Carrie Lam, Zhang Xiaoming, and others. As human rights are dominant international norms, I would like to invite India to impose travel bans and economic restrictions on the Hong Kong and Chinese officials, who are accountable for blatant violation of human rights in Hong Kong and China, so as to stop them from violating human rights.

Those steps would serve the interests of the people of India, Hong Kong, and the world. I would hugely appreciate it if India would suspend the extradition treaty with the Hong Kong regime, and impose further sanctions against the Hong Kong and Chinese regimes.

Yours sincerely,
Honcques Laus
