A New York City outpost of the communist Chinese government to conduct surveillance on dissenters living abroad is being run by a shady US-based charity that is on the IRS blacklist according to a shocking report on the “police station,” one of over a hundred such outposts known to exist across the world.
The “service station” which is located above a noodle shop on the third floor of a building at 107 East Broadway on Manhattan’s Lower East Side is operated by the non-profit America ChangLe Association NY Inc. according to public filings, according to the New York Post,
“In May, the IRS yanked the group’s tax-exempt status for its failure to submit tax filings for three straight years, according to public records,” the outlet reported. “The non-profit, which was incorporated in New York in 2013 and listed its charitable mission as a ‘social gathering place for Fujianese people,’ paid $1.3 million three years later for the suite of offices that houses the Fuzhou Police Overseas Chinese Affairs bureau, filings show.”
As one of over 100 such stations set up globally by the People’s Republic of China with the ostensible purpose of helping Chinese nationals renew their government-issued id documents, the web of entities have a more nefarious purpose according to the Madrid-based human rights watchdog Safeguard Defenders which documents Chinese repression.
