Jones story doesn’t add up

ᔥ 3 News

Shane Jones says he granted citizenship to Bill Liu because he believed the poor guy was going to be shot and his organ’s harvested.

“I was told the execution of this man… that he would be executed… which is the reason the officials gave for him not wanting to go back to China.”

Mr Jones said declining it would have been like signing a death warrant.

Mr Jones says he was told that Mr Yan would be “jailed, executed and his organs harvested” if he was sent back to China.

“That to me comprised grounds for a humanitarian decision,” Mr Jones says.

Really?

How come Bill Liu was planning to take these Labour MPs to China?

“He said he had a lot of support from members of Parliament … he was going to take them to China,”

Surely if he was going to be shot in China that would be the last place he’d want to visit?

The excuse given by Jones holds as much water as a colander.

    As much as the Banks/Dotcom fiasco looked bad, this look much worse…..and no surpirse radio red and nz horrid are less than interested – compare the outrage shown at banks and the almost “whoops” approach re Jones.  Lets have an investigation as I cant belive that even if this guy (whatever his name is today) was going to be killed, that surely is no way to justfy citzenship….

    If Mr Jones was told that Mr Liu’s organs were going to be harvested, and that was not mentioned in the DIA’s advice against granting him citizenship then surely the matter should have been refered back to the DIA for review to see if the issue was a concern?

    The other thing conveniently overlooked is that Liu had residency at the time so he was not about to be kicked out IIRC

      What do you mean at first ?  Labour MPs & Ministers, Union oragnisers have been practising for years/decades……

    Maybe Jones was told to deflect negative attention off Labour any way he could so as not to take the focus off the budget tomorrow. He was either used or he is a liar – either way he should not be in Parliament

    UBNZ, Natural Dairy, Crafar Farms, May Wang, Jack Chen, Bill Liu – all are connected. Chinese business round table of which Phil Goof is the patron. Liu an advisor to Chen at the time.

       MP Raymond Huo is the adviser too.

    Yet another barefaced lie from Liarbore.

    The hypocrisy of the Left never ceases to amaze me! Whatever they criticise National for, you can bet your last dollar the left’s done (and will continue to do) far worse.

    The “humanitarian” decision should have been to send him back so that several other people could benefit from his otherwise useless organs. What about the “death warrant” handed down to those who did not benefit from his kedneys, liver, heart etc?

      Don’t forget a strong right wrist and hand as well.

    So…….this man commited a crime, in china, SSSOOO serious that it warranted the DEATH PENALTY!!! and you let him into NZ with complete impunity? Tell mrs jones, is this the story you son expects us to believe????? I address this to mrs jones because only a preschooler would come up with such complete bullshit, and expect us to believe it.
