CHINA should be made to pay reparations for covering up the outbreak of coronavirus, but given they are unlikely to do so if the Government pursue this through the courts then the UK could seize assets and halt repayment of the sovereign debt that Britain owes Beijing, an expert has claimed.
Doctor Alan Mendoza, executive director of the Henry Jackson Society, told Express.co.uk: “Were the UK to pursue a claim against China and secure a judgment that mandated compensation and were China than to ignore it, we would be entitled to pursue any lawful means for collection on that judgment. The possibilities might include seizing Chinese state-owned property or halting repayment on Chinese-owned sovereign debt.” China may be the world’s second-largest economy behind the US, but it has more money in the bank than any other country.
