AMSTERDAM — A Chinese petitioner is on track to be repatriated by the Netherlands back to China, where she will likely face severe persecution and may even lose her life.
Chen Yan sought asylum in the Netherlands after she faced persecution for petitioning the Chinese Communist Party. Now, shortly after she protested during Chinese Premier Li Keqiang’s visit to Brussels (see a Radio Free Asia video here), the Netherlands is holding her in immigration custody and planning to send her back to China.
If this happens, her life will be in great peril.
Therefore, ChinaAid is calling on the Dutch government to not return Chen to China and urging all of its supporters to stand up and tell the Netherlands not to risk the life of an innocent woman.
