Chinese Illegal Loggers Pardoned and Released From Jail

Chinese Illegal Loggers Pardoned and Released From Jail

155 Chinese nationals who received prison sentences of at least ten years for illegal logging activity in Myanmar have been released from jail and are being returned to China. The extraordinary turnaround of events came after Myanmar President Thein Sein pardoned a total of 6966 prisoners, which included the previously reported 153 Chinese nationals. The event came after “stern negotiations” made by the Chinese consulate in Myanmar. Tengchong local government representatives will collect the ex-prisoners at the border in Kambaiti and perform health checks. Netizens wanted to know the reason for the amnesty.

        End justifies the means?

  • Chris Ferrara

    Well it certainly couldn’t be China interfering in the internal affairs of another country, they hate that!!

    • James

      Well certainly you aren’t using a strawman argument, you hate that!!

      • Chris Ferrara

        Wow, using my non-existent history of hating straw man arguments to build a false analogy with China’s long and detailed history of complaining about interference in their internal affairs is literally the definition of a straw man argument. You’re attacking me for something I never said in order to deflect a coherent criticism based on the Chinese government’s apparent cynicism and hypocrisy. It’s OK to interfere in the internal affairs of another country when it’s for a good reason like a weaker nation on China’s border “treating Chinese citizens unfairly”, but it’s not OK when it’s for a bad reason like anything happening inside of the borders of China ever.

          tl;dr

            No one was arguing. You created a non-argument to not have. Bravo. I’m gonna go do that with my cat.

          • James

            nope

      • Jahar

        All I see is mockery of a double standard. I see no arguing.

    The Chinese shouldn’t be cutting things not within their borders.

  • DD Bear!

    i am happy for them. coz most workers are from my province.
    we always can see burmen sell their medicine and jade in our market. i do not think people here are unfriendly to them.

    • Foreign Devil

      So you live in Yunnan? The “burmen” don’t come into China and cut down your old growth forests (whats left of them) and hunt your rare animals. . they just sell jade in your market.

      • DD Bear!

        why you are so nosy?
        you wanna come to visit me ?

        • Foreign Devil

          I liked Yunnan. . I’d even consider retiring to Xishuangbanna or somewhere if it remains cheap to live there in the future. I’d be afraid to visit you, especially afraid of your dad and his gangster friends.

          • DD Bear!

            what?
            his ganster friends????
            who tell you this?

          • Foreign Devil

            You did. You said your dad helped his “big boss” friend who killed a foreigner to get away with it. Sounds like a gangster type person to me.

          • DD Bear!
