Jones story doesn’t add up

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.


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.
