Liu, 56-year-old Chinese national and a father of five children, was shot dead on Sunday night in his apartment in the 19th arrondissement by a policeman after a neighbor called the police to report a domestic dispute.
According to the police, Liu was killed after he tried to attack the officer with scissors "as soon as the door was opened."
However, Liu's daughter said the police burst through the door, "the shot was gone and my father found himself on the ground." "The (victim's) family totally disputes this version of events. He didn't injure anyone," Calvin Job, a lawyer of the man's family was quoted as saying by local media.
According to reports, on March 26th, a Chinese citizen was shot dead by French plainclothes police in his home in Paris. After that, a group of overseas Chinese living in France rallied in front of the local police office and had some clashes with police officers. What is your comment? Has China made representations with France? What measures has China taken in response?
On the night of March 26th local time, a Chinese citizen was shot dead by French plainclothes police in his home in Paris. Some overseas Chinese living in France rallied in front of the local police office and had some clashes with police officers.
Upon learning the incident, the Chinese foreign ministry has placed high importance to it and instructed the Chinese embassy in France to activate its emergency response mechanism. The embassy immediately lodged representations with the French side and asked them to establish the truth as soon as possible, take concrete and effective measures to protect the safety and lawful rights and interests of Chinese citizens in France, and treat the reactions of overseas Chinese rationally.
The Chinese embassy in France has sent officials to visit and console the family of the deceased and offered relevant assistance. Competent department of the Chinese foreign ministry has made representations in emergency meeting with officials of the French embassy in China today and will closely follow the developments of the incident together with our embassy in France, so as to effectively protect the safety and lawful rights and interests of Chinese citizens and institutions in France. We also hope that our fellow Chinese in France can express their concerns and demands in a reasonable and legal way.
