Q: It is reported that 95 accounts of Chinese students studying in the UK have recently been frozen on suspicion of money laundering. What is the comment of the Chinese Embassy in the UK?
A: We have taken note of the relevant reports and are further enquiring about the verification. The Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom has always demanded that British and Chinese citizens abide by the laws of China and Britain. At the same time, it urged the British side to handle relevant cases fairly according to law and to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens. Once again, we remind the Chinese citizens concerned to cooperate actively with the investigation and safeguard their legitimate rights and interests through legal channels. The Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom will, within its responsibilities, provide necessary assistance to the Chinese citizens concerned.
