While he was in China, he made huge fortunes on smuggling anything of worth that people were willing to buy. When we talked to him, he said he made quite a bit smuggling cars and oil. Mind you, he started his way of business back when he was still young, smuggling things like TVs on his bicycle.

I think the problem is that even though the Chinese government claims that they'll treat Lai fairly, there are many ways to have him killed or his cause of death faked. If China were to do so regardless, wouldn't that potentially ruin the reputation of China for future extradition cases between the two countries? Wasn't the Canadian government hesitant to ship him back in the first place?
knowing China, theyll probably kill the real one and sub in a fake Lai Changxing in his place

rofl, you'd think China gives a shit about how Canada thinks about what they do with Lai. This has always been China's problem and Canada should've stayed the fuck out in the first place.

Pretty much

If you fuck up somewhere else and try to take refuge elsewhere you should always be sent back to where you commuted your crimes for punishment, I couldn't care less about rights or shit like that this guy shouldn't be in Canada in the first place, you fuck up in china, Pay the price there.

If you dont think China has signed 10B+ worth of future trade agreements with Canada for giving this guy up you are really living in a glass dome.

Until the plane touches down in China (or is it once it crosses the Chinese border?), it's still considered Canadian soil.

that doesnt sound right to me, a) he is not so important that they would block off a road for him. he's a chinese drug dealer not osama bin laden. b) if he is in danger etc and they need to be extra cautious, why would they make it so obvious where he is by closing a road for him?

im sorry but once again, chinese gvnt or not, hes a drug dealer. nobody gives a shit. obviously the cdn gvnt will say they dont want him dead - theyre trying their best to make a statement. but at the end of the day if u commit a crime, didnt get away with it, flee and get caught, its all in the game. all this "he has sons in sfu and hasnt done wrong in a while" talk is horseshit. theyre at sfu on blood money. and like i said, its all in the game, so let him die

How long before Chinese tourists are freely able to travel to Canada without the current restrictions from both countries?

I remember a few years ago they mentioned this dude was pretty much the only reason why we don't get preferential treatment.

Canada is already on China's list of approved countries to visit. Chinese tourists who are able to afford the fees required to leave their home soil can apply to visit Canada much easier than most other countries.

If I remember correctly this was supposed to be done years ago but we got totally bumped down the list because of this guy.

And Chinese tourists that come to Canada right now, if I am not mistaken, get their visa via tour packages, family sponsorship, or business.

In case anybody is interested.

Man deported from Canada admits crimes: China - Yahoo! News

"BEIJING (Reuters) - China's most wanted man, who was deported from Canada in July after a decades-long legal battle, has admitted to his crimes and will now be handed over to prosecutors, state media reported on Friday.

Beijing had sought the deportation of Lai Changxing for years, accusing him of running a multi-billion dollar smuggling ring in the southeastern city of Xiamen in the 1990s in one of China's biggest political scandals in decades.

Nothing has been heard of him since he was returned to China over the summer.

A brief report on state radio's website (中国广播网 一网听天下) said the probe into his crimes had finished and that Lai would now be handed over to Xiamen prosecutors.

"Lai Changxing and other mainstay members of his criminal clique candidly confessed the facts of their smuggling and bribery crimes," state radio said.

The "legal rights" of Lai and the other suspects were "fully guaranteed," with Lai able to meet with his lawyer, the report added.

The investigation team carried out the probe "fairly and in accordance with the law," it said.

Lai may face life imprisonment, state media has reported. But some legal experts and human rights activists have said it was unlikely Lai could receive a fair trial in China.

The report did not say when Lai's case may come to trial.

The probe found that between 1996 and 1999, Lai and his accomplices smuggled cars, oil, chemicals, cigarettes and other goods and bribed "dozens" of government officials, state radio added.

"The figure involved was enormous," it said, without providing other details.

Lai, whose case had plagued Sino-Canadian relations, was sent back after a Canadian court dismissed concerns he could be tortured or executed back home.

Lai fled to Canada with his family in 1999 and claimed refugee status, saying the allegations against him were politically motivated.

China had promised Canada Lai would not be tortured or executed and that Canadian officials would have access to him.

Lai's alleged crimes occurred in the special economic zone of Xiamen in Fujian province in the mid-1990s when Jia Qinglin, now the ruling Communist Party's fourth most senior leader, was the province's Party boss.

Beijing has accused Lai's business empire, the Yuanhua Group, of bribing officials to allow a massive smuggling ring in a scandal that implicated more than 200 senior figures, including Jia's wife, Lin Youfang. She denied any wrongdoing.

Lai admitted in a 2009 interview with Toronto's Globe and Mail newspaper that he had avoided taxes by exploiting loopholes in the law, but he denies bribery charges. He said he would have been executed had he not been in Canada.

China put more than 300 suspects on trial and sentenced 14 to death, including provincial officials and a former vice minister of public security, in a case Beijing has used for a propaganda campaign against corruption."
