Tibetan claims he was maltreated in Chinese embassy of Vienna

violenceThe embassy of China in the city centre of Vienna was the place of dramatic scenes last week on Thursday.

A Tibetan protester climbed up to the balcony, and broke down the Chinese flag.

Afterwards staff members of the Chinese embassy pulled him into the building and started to beat him. One Chinese woman even kicked him with her high heels. This is the version of the Tibetan victim.

The Tibetan man was brought to hospital with serious injuries on his head and his lumbar vertebra. The doctors were shocked about the condition of the patient, and confirmed a heavy maltreatment.

The victim told that he was beated with fists and sticks. A Chinese woman kicked his head with high heels.

A spokesman of the Chinese embassy denies the serious accusations. “His statements are pure lies and a defamation”, was the message from the Chinese.

Now the Austrian police has a problem to clarify the case. A foreign embassy is legally not a territory of Austria. That’s why Austria is not authorized to investigate. It seems Chinese police has to take on the case.
