Did Henan Authorities Abuse Virus Controls to Stymie Swindled Bank Depositors?
Officials in central China’s Henan province may have violated criminal law by abusing a health code system designed for pandemic control to block the mobility of petitioners swindled in a multibillion-dollar financial scam, a legal expert said.
A social media article that went viral Monday reported that a number of people across China unexpectedly saw their health codes turn red when they arrived in Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan, or planned to go there. A red code flags high risk of virus exposure and blocks people from free movement.
