(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- A Chinese student, 25, was caught stalking and threatening a woman in Boston who posted fliers calling for democracy in China, according to Newsweek. Xiaolei Wu was arrested at a time when the Chinese Communist Party is using its reach and influence to target dissidents of the regime here on American soil.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Massachusetts announced Wu’s arrest over his threats to a woman posting fliers around the Berklee College of Music that read “Stand with Chinese People,” “We Want Freedom,” and “We Want Democracy.”
“Post more, I will chop your b****** hands off,” one of Wu’s threats read according to the charging documents. He had also reportedly threatened her family, saying that he had informed the public security agency in China.
Wu encouraged online harassment when he found her email address and shared it as he tried to find out where she was living.
Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Division said that they believe that Wu stalked, harassed, and reported the woman’s support for democracy in China to Chinese officials so that they can investigate her and her family.
“This alleged conduct is incredibly disturbing and goes completely against our country’s democratic values,” he said, adding that the FBI is working to protect free speech for all American citizens and bring justice to those who are infringing on those rights.
Agents for the Chinese Communist Party have allegedly been involved in protests in the United States against the regime’s zero-tolerance policies. Newsweek reportedly identified nine “confirmed or suspected” proxy Chinese police stations and courts located in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
The outlet also found “at least 627 groups linked to CCP influence operations in the United States.” FBI Director Chris Wray has reportedly expressed his concern about the CCP’s proxy surveillance stations and has recently pursued high-profile cases linked to the intimidation of dissidents of the regime.
