Kenya official: 35 Chinese, 5 Taiwanese deported to China

09 August 2016, 07:43

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A police official says Kenya has deported 35 Chinese and five Taiwanese to China after they were acquitted on wire fraud charges.

Taiwan's envoy to Kenya, John Chen, had asked Kenya not to deport the five Taiwanese to China. Taiwan rejects China's claim to its territory and wanted its citizens returned there.

The senior police official said Monday that all were put on a flight headed for the southern city of Guangzhou on Sunday night. The official insisted on anonymity because he was not authorized to share the information.

Forty-five other Taiwanese nationals arrested on similar charges were draped in black hoods and deported to China upon their acquittal in April, despite expressing fears about human rights violations there, according to rights group Amnesty International.
