China decides to adopt sanctions on Pelosi

What are these sanctions?

The EC with the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control has developed formidable procedures according to "well-established principles of international law, such as respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other states" to identify, seize, and "freeze" real property and financial assets held by persons who violate national security laws.

Allegedly famille Pelosi holdings subject to the CBIRC, CSRC, PBOC and MoF regulation include:
• Asia Investment Fund, sub Mingji Global Investment
• Matthews Global Investors
• Matthews International Mutual Fund
• International Media Acquisition Corp

Use your imagination.

What does the EU or the Treasury have to do with Chinese sanctions?

You reported on Chinese sanctions on Pelosi. Why are you not giving us the details (Or, on the other hand, why bother reporting on the fighting in Ukraine, when we could "use our immagination")

EU and US have "well-established principles of international law, such as respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other states" to identify, seize, and "freeze" real property and financial assets held by persons who violate national security laws."

China enforces its national security laws and constantly avers state obligations to "international laws" and UN Conventions. Until further notice, I presume China will apply those "well-established principles" and procedures (as precisely explained by US Treasury Sec Yellen, for example, and EC President vdL) to arrest proceeds from beneficial ownership entitled to persons who violate its own national security laws.

Yes, I'm not going to search for either an official statement published by the Chinese MoF or applicable provisions of Chinese civil code. I've wasted enough energy on revealing EUR LEX and USC. You try it!

I did look for what the sanctions are. I couldn't find anything. Maybe they only published them in Chinese. But our "journalists" who published the story should have done their job.
