The Chinese embassy in Namibia has distanced its operations and relations from what its chargé d’affaires Li Nan called the ‘rotten’ Chinese, following dozens of poaching cases and other illegal activities involving Chinese nationals. Several Chinese were also arrested in arguably the biggest financial scandal ever reported in Namibia, involving N$3.5 billion that the government allegedly lost in tax evasion and money laundering, among others counts in the matter. Some Namibians were also arrested in connection with the case. “China will never give unprincipled protection to Chinese national suspects if they are treated according to the law,” he said. He said Chinese nationals that are involved in illegal activities do not represent the local Chinese community and embassy, and certainly not the People’s Republic of China.
