Defeated Drew on the attack
SUSPENDED student activist Drew Pavlou has called on the Scott Morrison and the Foreign Minister to remove the highest-ranking Chinese official in Brisbane from his position, after his complaint against Xu Jie was dismissed in court.
Mr Pavlou was seeking a Peace and Good Behaviour Order against the Brisbane Chinese consul-general Dr Xu after he issued a public statement on July 24 last year, that labelled an anti-CCP protest at the University of f Queensland, led by Mr Pavlou, as “separatist”.
Deputy Chief Magistrate Janelle Brassington yesterday dismissed the complaint made by Mr Pavlou in Brisbane Magistrates Court, determining that Dr Xu was acting within his consular functions when issuing the press release.
Outside court, Mr Pavlou said it was a “fair and dispassionate decision” but called for action from the federal government. “I am calling on Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Foreign Minister Marise Payne to stand up for Australians and declare Consul-General Xu Jie persona non grata and remove him from his position as consul-general,” he said.
