RCMP investigating alleged ‘Chinese police stations’ in Montreal, Brossard IG News

Irshadgul News report,

The RCMP confirmed Thursday morning that two Montreal-area organizations were being investigated as “alleged Chinese police stations.”

In an email to CTV News, RCMP spokesman Charles Poirier said the “alleged centres” are located in Montreal and Brossard on the South Shore.

According to the human rights group Safeguard Defenders, so-called Chinese police stations are used to monitor and intimidate Chinese citizens living overseas, sometimes forcing them to return to China for harassment.

A 2022 report by the organization, which tracks disappearances in China, alleged searches at more than 100 Chinese police stations around the world.

The RCMP would not provide further details on the Montreal-area centers involved in the investigation.

However, Poirier urged any Chinese Canadian who has been the victim of a suspected foreign police station to come forward and call 514-939-8301.

“These activities and any other form of intimidation, harassment or targeting of migrant communities or individuals in Canada will not be tolerated,” he added.

In a press briefing on Thursday morning, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was carefully monitoring the situation.

“We are in the process of making sure the RCMP is tracking this and our intelligence system is taking it seriously,” he said.

“It is an issue we are very concerned about.”
