Poland, China: Lack of Response to Akmal Shaikh's Case

Categories: East Asia, Eastern & Central Europe, China, Poland, Ethnicity & Race, Governance, Human Rights, International Relations, Law, Media & Journalism

Polandian writes [1] about Poland's lack of response to the execution of Akmal Shaikh in China: “[…] Akmal spent quite some time in Poland, was married to a Pole and is survived by two Polish children. The question was therefore raised as to why Poland did not join in the call for clemency? […] Poland remained silent throughout, presumably on the basis that he wasn’t Polish, he annoyed the police in Lublin and didn’t pay his taxes.”
