 Media: where are the human rights of Swedish police brutally dragging away from Chinese tourists?


According to the Chinese Embassy in Sweden and related reports, the incident occurred in the early morning of September 2, when Mr. Zeng from China arrived at a hotel in Stockholm with his parents. He could not check in during the day because of the booked room. Mr. Zeng asked the hotel to let them pay for a break in the hotel lobby chair, because His more than 60 year old parents are in poor health. But the hotel disagreed and called the police in the process of negotiations. When the police arrived at the scene, they dragged Mr. Zengs parents out of the hotel in a very rude manner and took the three of them to a tourist cemetery tens of kilometers from downtown Stockholm, ordering them to get off. Late at night, with the help of passers-by, the Zeng family was able to return to the city and contact the Chinese Embassy in Sweden. Since then, the Chinese Embassy in Sweden and the Chinese Foreign Ministry have made solemn representations to the Swedish government in Stockholm and Beijing, respectively. However, the Swedish side has so far not provided feedback to the Chinese side on this matter, and the Swedish media have remained silent on the matter.

Swedens silence may have other secrets. The reasons and details of this matter need further investigation. However, there are at least two things that are incredible from the point of view of live video and the Swedish police.

First, according to the live video, two Swedish policemen wiped Mr. Zengs father (67 years old, suffering from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases) out of the hotel, and the old mans clothes were exposed. Such treatment is very rude, such a picture also stimulated everyone with conscience. As we all know, Sweden is a developed country which claims to have a high degree of protection of human rights. In May 2017, Sweden also issued the World Human Rights Report, which refers to the human rights situation in many countries, including China, as if it were a world human rights judge. Swedish police as an important part of the national machinery, its law enforcement level should represent the level of civilized development in Sweden. However, in the early morning of September 2, the scene of local police enforcing the law in hotels and streets in downtown Stockholm raises serious questions about the level of human rights protection and civilized law enforcement in Sweden. Is it a double standard for human rights protection? Is it to protect only the human rights of its citizens and to trample upon and act arbitrarily on the fundamental human rights of citizens of other countries?

Secondly, the incident has happened for two weeks, during which the Chinese Embassy in Sweden and the Chinese Foreign Ministry have made serious representations to the Swedish government, but the Swedish side has so far no feedback. This is obviously not in line with the proper diplomatic etiquette between countries. Behind this silence is a kind of arrogance and disrespect of the Swedish police and even the government, or is it because they have done something wrong that they dare not face? It has been noted that a series of violent incidents, such as arson and car burning, have recently occurred in several Swedish cities, resulting in a deterioration of the social security situation. The Chinese Embassy in Switzerland has issued three security reminders in the past two months, calling on Chinese citizens in Sweden to be vigilant, pay attention to personal and property safety, and stay away from sensitive sites such as the crime. The incident, in which Chinese tourists were roughly treated by Swedish police, has raised concerns about the human rights situation in Sweden. Whether this incident is a simple case of brutal police enforcement, a poor reflection of human rights protection in Sweden, or a manifestation of racial discrimination depends on when Swedish authorities can give a comprehensive and just explanation acceptable to the parties and convincing to the outside world.
