A top Chinese judge
has branded President
Donald Trump a bully
and an “enemy of the
rule of law” for
attacking the US
judiciary as China revels
in the upheaval gripping
the world’s leading
democracy.
Trump launched a
tirade against US
District Judge James
Robart for suspending
his travel ban on people
from seven majority
Muslim nations last
week, deriding him as a
“so-called judge”.
He Fan, of the Supreme
People’s Court of China,
likened Trump’s
criticism to the murder
of a judge in China last
month.
“A president criticising
judges and bandits
murdering judges are all
enemies of the rule of
law,” he wrote on his
public WeChat social
media page on Sunday.
“In a country claiming
to be the most
democratic and most
based on rule-of-law,
for a president to lead
the charge in scolding
judges… makes him no
different from a bully
without dignity!”
Since Trump’s
inauguration last
month, the official
mouthpiece of the
ruling Communist Party
has blasted the
“systemic crisis” facing
capitalist Western
democracies, hailing the
superiority of China’s
authoritarian system.
Trump’s threats to get
tough with what he
sees as unfair Chinese
trade practices have
sparked fury in Beijing
while his Twitter
outbursts against the
media have prompted
scathing commentary
in China’s nationalist
publications.
Senior officials in
China’s highest court
are appointed by the
rubber-stamp
parliament, the
National People’s
Congress, and are
expected to toe the
line of the ruling
Communist Party, not
act as a check on its
power.
He Fan’s comments are
jarring given that
Chinese President Xi
Jinping has rolled out a
crackdown on lawyers
who have taken on
cases deemed
sensitive by the
leadership.
Authorities, touting the
slogan “rule of law”,
have arrested
hundreds of
campaigners and
lawyers in a sweeping
attack on legal
activism.
Chinese courts have a
conviction rate of 99.92
percent.
