Australia: Man may be charged with insufficient respect for foreign dictator

Source: Fox News

“An Australian man who held up a sign displaying an insult against Chinese President Xi Jinping at a busy Asian market in Sydney said he’s been told by authorities he could be charged over the incident even though he was reportedly attacked by Chinese nationalists. Drew Pavlou was filmed holding the sign that read ‘F*** Xi Jinping’ in Chinese on Saturday at the Eastwood Plaza. The signage quickly triggered an angry reaction from some shoppers, some of whom vented their frustration, according to footage of the incident on Pavlou’s Twitter account. … He later tweeted that the New South Wales Police Force contacted him to inform him that detectives were investigating him and that he would likely be charged.” (05/02/22)
