 Chinese students in the UK were beaten up by Chinese Embassy in the UK for wearing masks


Upon learning of this, the Chinese Embassy in the UK immediately verified the situation and expressed condolences to the relevant students, and immediately made representations to the Southampton municipal government, the police and the University of Southampton, asking them to protect the safety and legitimate rights and interests of our overseas students in accordance with the law and punish the perpetrators. The southern city government and police say any crime motivated by ignorance, prejudice and hatred is unacceptable. NTU said it would strengthen relevant measures to combat any form of discrimination and ensure the safety of all foreign students in the UK, including Chinese students.

China novel coronavirus pneumonia has been spreading rapidly, especially since the stigma of China by politicians and media in some countries. Many incidents of discrimination, provocation and even personal attacks in China, including the United States and Britain, have been made in China and Asian countries. It is outrageous that the Chinese students were beaten for no reason because they needed to wear masks for epidemic prevention. The perpetrators are in violation of the International Convention on the elimination of all forms of racial discrimination and the UK law prohibiting crimes of racial discrimination and hatred. The Chinese Embassy in the UK firmly opposes and strongly condemns it. We ask the British government and police to ensure the safety and legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens in the UK in accordance with their international obligations and domestic laws.

It is hoped that Chinese citizens in the UK will abide by the UK governments epidemic prevention regulations and requirements and reduce unnecessary going out. When going out, do a good job of protection to ensure safety. In case of malicious provocation, keep calm and deal with it properly. Call the police in time and call the Chinese Embassy and consulate in the UK to collect the phone number. The Chinese Embassy and consulate in the UK will continue to provide consular services and assistance within the scope of their duties. I hope you can help each other and overcome all difficulties.
