A visit to Beijing friendly nations or those with weak judicial systems could leave people at risk of deportation coque samsung s7 supcase to China, a former MAC official said
Beijing could request countries with which it has extradition agreements to deport Taiwanese to China to face criminal charges following the implementation of national security legislation for Hong coque champion iphone 8 silicone Kong, a former Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) official warned yesterday.

"Taiwanese need to be extra coque samsung j6 careful when they visit countries that have extradition agreements with Hong Kong," Tung said.
