What happens when a Chinese citizen commits a crime overseas, serves his sentence and then is deported back to China?
Well, that depends upon whether China recognizes his citizenship. Sometimes there are delays and delays and the former prisoner gets release from US immigration detention since there are limits to how long people can be held there.
I saw someone asking that question online recently and curious did a bit of research on Chinese websites. There are all kinds of questions and answers online, including answers from lawyers. Lots and lots of stuff in a Chinese language internet world that has already grown to hundred of millions of users. Anyways see my summary of the answers from a Chinese online forum below. This is online information and your mileage may vary according to your circumstances.
A Chinese citizen who committed an offense overseas, was punished, and then returned to China might also be punished for the offense under Chinese law. However, depending upon the sentence or fine imposed overseas, they either might not be punished at all or get a lighter jail term or fine. People who committed offenses overseas which have carry a sentence of three years or less will not be pursued by the Chinese courts except in certain cases in which not prosecuting them would create a bad influence on society. Whether or not a person is further pursued under Chinese law after they have been punished by jail or a fine overseas is not certain, it depends upon the circumstances of each case.
The second question: May a Chinese overseas apply for a passport after they complete their sentence.
Answer: People who complete their prison sentences in China must wait six months to three years before they may apply for a PRC passport. Don’t know what the rule is for prisoners overseas. You had better ask go see your local Public Security Bureau Entry Exit Bureau and ask.
