All 45 Taiwanese wire fraud suspects detained in Beijing after being deported from Kenya have confessed to their crimes and will be put on trial, a mainland police official said, signalling a refusal to compromise on a case that has raised new frictions between Taiwan and the mainland.

The group is now being investigated and will be prosecuted together with 32 mainlanders deported earlier this month along with them, the official Xinhua News Agency quoted Chen Shiqu, a deputy inspector with Public Security Ministry’s criminal inspection bureau, as saying.

Taiwan has protested the deportation to the mainland, and many see in Beijing’s pressure on Kenya behind the decision. Beijing says it has jurisdiction in the case because it says the victims were all mainlanders and has complained that Taiwan has not sufficiently punished suspects in previous such case.

“The suspects specifically targeted people on the Chinese mainland and their victims are from the mainland. Not to mention that many of the suspects are themselves from the mainland,” Chen was quoted as saying.

Chen’s made the remarks to a Taiwanese delegation on a fact-finding mission when they visited the detention centre where the suspects are being held.

Although the mainland has ruled out sending the 45 to Taiwan for prosecution or to serve out their sentences, the sides are exploring ways to cooperate in fighting and prosecuting such cases in future.

Chinese workers in Greater Toronto restaurants face “widespread and persistent” workplace abuse, including being routinely denied minimum wage, overtime pay and vacation pay, according to a new report.

 

The report to be released Monday finds that some 43 per cent of Chinese workers earned less than the minimum wage, currently set at $11.25. Over half of the respondents reported working more than 40 hours a week, but only 11 per cent of those eligible for overtime pay said they received it.

 

The majority of workers were also cheated out of their statutory entitlements, the report shows: 61 per cent said their employers denied them public holidays, and 57 per cent said they did not receive vacation pay.

 

“The experience of Chinese restaurant workers stands out as a powerful illustration of the atrocities suffered by some of the most vulnerable workers in our economy, as well as a demonstration of the complete failure of the Ontario government to act on its legal obligation to protect workers,” says the Metro Toronto Chinese and Southeast Asian Legal Clinic report called “Sweet & Sour: The Struggle of Chinese Restaurant-workers.”

 

Avvy Go, director of the clinic, said the findings were no different from a similar survey it did almost three decades ago.

 

“Unfortunately, nothing has changed in the last 30 years. Our clients come to us asking for help on the same issues over their employment rights. They are still paid half in cash, half by cheque, with a pay stub,” Go said in an interview.

“We are still banging our heads against the same system over and over again. We call the report Sweet & Sour because it is a good deal for restaurant patrons and owners but sour for the workers.”

 

The clinic undertook the survey to identify the scale of workplace exploitation experienced by Chinese workers, after being contacted by more than 600 clients with complaints about employment standards violations over the past three years.

Muslims in a village in eastern Uganda last week killed Christians’ pigs and tore down their church building, sources said.

A Muslim mob demolished the building of the 450-member Nalugondo Church of Uganda building at about midnight on April 12, shouting, “We cannot live together with neighbors who are infidels. We have to fight for the cause of Allah,” according to area sources. Nalugondo village is near Bugade, Mayuge District, 93 miles east of Kampala.

Two days earlier, sources said, a group of Muslims slaughtered a church lay leader’s pigs, a key source of income.

Singing praises to Allah and shouting, “Allah only is to be worshipped, and Muhammad is his prophet,” the group led by area Muslim Kambo Daudo killed Samuel Kijali’s pigs at 4 p.m. on April 10, as Kijali’s wife watched helplessly.

A few weeks before the slaughter, Kijali had received text messages on his phone saying that church members must stop raising pigs. “Let this be known to your church members that pigs are extremely unholy and an abomination before Allah, very outrageous and shameful,” one text read. “They are haram [forbidden] and unlawful as our holy Quran does prohibit them.” Muslims also sent a text message to church member Kamaala Yokosani – “We are soon coming for the heads of your pigs” – before killing eight of his pigs on April 5, sources said. Yokosani was elected chairman of the Bugade zone in May 2015, and then later he began raising pigs. – See more at: http://www.gospelherald.com/articles/63685/20160421/muslims-in-uganda-kill-christians-livestock-demolish-church-building.htm#sthash.TebnDLm1.dpuf
