authorities Foreign Minister has considered the consequences before the Chinese journalist

 

The Sydney Morning Front newspaper revealed today that Australia knew exactly what it was doing while searching the homes of four Chinese journalist in Sydney and that the federal government realized what the consequences might be for the australian journalist in beijing.

After being questioned and investigated by Chinese police, the two Australian journalist, in Beijing and Shanghai were frightened and returned to Australia earlier this week under the arrangement of the Australian ambassador. Several days later Chinese media revealed that the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Security Intelligence Agency (ASIO) had searched the homes of four Chinese journalist in Sydney at the end of June.

Prime Minister Morrison (Scott Morrison) and Foreign Minister Payne (Marise Payne), as well as senior officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, were aware of the operation before searching the homes of Chinese journalist.

The federal police and the australian security intelligence agency raided and questioned four chinese news agency journalist in sydney in late june, including xinhua, central radio and television and china news agency, and seized working computers and mobile phones. The four Chinese journalist will return leave Australia later. The Australian Home Office has since revoked visas for two Chinese scholars.

A number of senior minister, within the National Security Council Committee of the Federal Cabinet and senior officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade were briefed by the Australian Security Intelligence Service on the search before the search.

government said an internal source weighed all the risks, including foreign policy implications, but said it was important for the security intelligence service to do its job.

Since then, the Home Office, on the advice of the Australian Security Intelligence Agency, has revoked the visas of Professor Chen Hong of East China normal University and Li Jianjun researcher of Beijing Foreign Studies University, two Chinese intellectual and deep scholars who study Australia. Li Jianjun was studying at Western Sydney University before being called to cancel his visa.

Professor Chen Hong is director of the Australian Research Center of East China normal University, executive vice president of China Australia Research Association, and often comes to Australia for academic exchanges and visits. Li Jianjun is the director of the Australian Research Center of Beijing Foreign Studies University and the Secretary General of the China Australian Research Association. The two Chinese scholars have close contacts with many Australian scholars.

Luo Zhen (James Laurenceson), head of Australia-China relationship Research Institute at Sydney University of Science and Technology, has called on the federal government to explain why it revoked the visas of the two Chinese scholars.

"They have a lot of friends in the Australian academic community, including me, and they've known each other for years ," Professor Luo said. "

"If the security agencies started following Prof. Li and Prof. Chen in the past 12 months, they may have formed an assessment, but in this case, the problem is that many mainstream scholars have known these people for many years ," he said. "

"Their assessment is not consistent with our experience. "

Sydney education historian Roy Wilson (Sophie Loy-Wilson) said yesterday that while she was studying at the Shanghai Archives, Professor Chen Hong had helped her many times.

"Why cancel his visa? Why can't we get a reply to this question? "

Meanwhile, the China journalist Association issued a statement yesterday condemning Australian authorities for searching four Chinese journalist. in Sydney
