China may create a blacklist of “die-hard” supporters of the independence of Taiwan. 

China claims Taiwan as its own territory.

Even though the Taiwan government says that the island is already an independent country, China refuses to accept this position.

Zhu Feglian, a representative for China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, said that they have taken the “targeted steps to severely punish in accordance with the law” those it viewed as hard-core backers of independence.

It is not sure how this would occur, as Chinese courts have no jurisdiction in Taiwan, while the government leaders of Taiwan do not visit China.
