BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, May 5th 2017 – Adequate due diligence was carried out when the former St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) administration granted Chinese national Ren Bioa, St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship and issued him a passport.

 

This has been confirmed by the Federation’s Attorney General, Sen. the Hon. Vincent Byron.

 

“Our information is that at that time,  proper due diligence process had been done and there had been no red flags. There had been no indication whatsoever that the individual had had any wrongdoing that came up in that report, and as such had been granted citizenship,” Byron told WINNFM’s Clive Bacchus.

 

Mr. Byron said it was after the granting of citizenship and issuance of the St. Kitts and Nevis passport in 2013 that an alleged crime was committed.

.The Government of the Peoples Republic of China has accusing the Timothy Harris Team Unity administration of harbouring a Chinese national that is on Interpol’s wanted list.

Beijing said they have had no co-operation from the government of Prime Minister Timothy Harris on the issue.

China claims that Ren Biao, who holds Chinese and St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship  is accused of swindling over US$100 million from a Chinese state firm.

Chinese diplomatic sources intercepted communication on April 16, in which Ren called relatives in Beijing seeking an additional US$190,000 to help to continue pay for what he reportedly described as his protection by Kittitian authorities..
