Sue Communist China for Coronavirus Pandemic, Says British Think Tank

Breitbart: A British think tank has said that Western nations where tens of thousands have died and whose economies have been damaged by Chinese coronavirus should sue the Communist country for compensation.

The neoconservative Henry Jackson Society (HJS) released a report on Sunday that said that if China were found liable for failures in its initial response to the Wuhan-origin pandemic and for intentionally withholding information from the rest of the world, a court could find Beijing in contravention of international treaties and the communist country would be liable to the rest of the world to the tune of trillions of pounds.

The report, Coronavirus Compensation? Assessing China’s Potential Culpability and Avenues of Legal Response, said that for G7 members alone, lawsuits related to “patent breaches” of the International Health Regulations (IHRs) could be worth up to £3.2 trillion. Individually, the United Kingdom could have a claim in damages worth £351 billion, the United States £933.3 billion, Canada £47.9 billion, and Australia £29.9 billion.

  1. I would like to see the payoff from China to be their forfeiture of all USA property and businesses.

  2. So, who on this board actually thinks that China would abide by a negative ruling? And, furthermore, don’t you think it would be just as easy to buy off any court officers as it is to buy American and European whores, I mean, politicians?

  3. Specifically what tort would you use to sue them for, in what court would you file the suit, and how would you prove your case?

    I doubt this would accomplish anything other than blowing off steam while making you feel like you have some kind of power and wasting a lot of your time and money.

    Some things can be done, some can’t. This is one of the ones that can’t.

  4. Trumps “advisers” now calling for grocery stores to close for two weeks. So that reporter that brought up closing stores got his wish.

  5. “It would be difficult for China to beat a coalition of 120 nations.”

    There isn’t a coalition of 120 nations, and many of those nations that could be if there was are dependent on China for all sorts of essential things or under direct Chinese control.

  6. Kinda like the dispute regarding the boundary between Heaven & Hell, which Hell constantly encroached upon.
    Totally frustrated, St. Peter threatened legal action, to which the Devil smiled and said,
    “where you gonna get a lawyer?”

  7. @ Anon – “Specifically what tort would you use to sue them for, in what court would you file the suit, and how would you prove your case?”

    Criminal mischief, massive fraud resulting in numerous deaths, intentional murder (if it’s discovered it was intentionally released to do the harms it did), crimes against humanity. There are probably lots more.

    Why should commies remain unprosecuted just because THEY don’t care?

  9. Anyone else notice the “Tokyo Anonymous” laying down anti-Trump, pro-Left BS among the threads lately?

  10. “Criminal mischief, massive fraud resulting in numerous deaths, intentional murder (if it’s discovered it was intentionally released to do the harms it did), crimes against humanity. There are probably lots more.”

    Great!!

    Now go and file the suit in court, it only coats around $400 to file in Federal court and you’re going to make billions on it.

    That is, of course, if you actually believe what you say.

    Which I doubt you do, but I will change my mind when I see the suit filed.

    BTW, you do know what a tort is?
