Credit to : Latest Offshore News : Corrupt Chinese Government Officials Flee To Australia Amid Hesitation To Extradite Criminals - Offshore News Flash
China has the Death Penalty and does use it on corrupt officials, China will have to promise no executions to get them back...The growing popularity of Australia as a haven in large part has to do with its hesitancy to extradite Chinese criminals back to their home country. “China is pressuring Australia to revive a bilateral extradition treaty that was signed by the [John] Howard government in 2007 but never ratified by the Australian parliament,” Neil Thomas, a scholar at the Australian Center on China in the World at the Australian National University, wrote in an op-ed Tuesday in East Asia Forum, a quarterly academic magazine. Though Australian officials have expressed consideration of the treaty, likely for fear of jeopardizing other economic ties, Australian authorities have yet to act on any possible requests of extradition from China.
