China issues guidelines on criminal punishment

21/6/2024 18:09
        China on Friday issued guidelines on imposing criminal punishment on "diehard Taiwan independence" separatists for conducting or inciting secession, state news agency Xinhua reported.
        
        China, which views democratically governed Taiwan as its own territory, has stepped up pressure on the island after the inauguration last month of Lai Ching-te as president, a man Beijing despises as a "separatist", including staging war games shortly after he took office.
        
        The new guidelines say China's courts, prosecutors, public and state security bodies should "severely punish Taiwan independence diehards for splitting the country and inciting secession crimes in accordance with the law, and resolutely defend national sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity".
        
        The guidelines are being issued in accordance with laws already on the books, including the 2005 anti-succession law, Xinhua said.
        
        That law gives China the legal basis for military action against Taiwan if it secedes or seems about to.
