With China’s communist government still acting very prickly in the wake of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to Taiwan, Apple is urging its suppliers to make sure to label any shipments from Taiwan to China in strict compliance with the Chinese customs regulations regarding how the island is named.

It’s a critical time for Apple, as it prepares to launch the next generation of iPhones this fall, and suppliers are currently assembling various components for the new smartphones.

According to a report by Nikkei Asia, Pelosi’s visit “stoked fears of rising trade barriers,” making Apple nervous about “possible disruptions” if crucial shipments are delayed or even blocked in customs due to a failure to appease China’s labelling demands:

Apple told suppliers on Friday that China has started strictly enforcing a long-standing rule that Taiwanese-made parts and components must be labeled as being made either in “Taiwan, China” or “Chinese Taipei,” sources familiar with the matter told Nikkei Asia, language that indicates the island is part of China…

Using the phrase “Made in Taiwan” on any import declaration forms, documents or cartons could cause shipments to be held and checked by Chinese customs, the sources added. Penalties for violating such a rule is a fine of up to 4,000 yuan ($592) or, in the worst-case scenario, the shipment being rejected, one of the sources said.

This presents a dilemma for suppliers who need to ship materials, components or parts from Taiwan to China, however, as the democratically governed island also requests that all exports be labeled with product of origin, which means they must carry the words “Taiwan” or “Republic of China,” the island’s official name, according to suppliers and logistics companies.

It’s not a hypothetical problem, but rather an issue that is already happening. Shipments from Taiwan to facilities operated by Pegatron, an iPhone assembler, in Suzhou, China were “held for review” Thursday while Chinese officials inspected the import declaration forms and cartons to determine if they were labeled “Taiwan” or “Republic of China,” Nikkei Asia reported.

A senior Pegatron executive was among several Taiwanese chip industry corporate leaders who attended the lunch with Pelosi that was hosted by Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen Wednesday, the report noted, perhaps highlighting another reason the company found itself under increased scrutiny.

Holiday warning as Ibiza tattoo artist ‘who sexually assaulted’ Brit tourist, 21, ‘suspected of FIVE previous attacks’

A TATTOO artist who allegedly sexually assaulted a 21-year-old Scottish holiday-maker is "suspected of FIVE previous attacks", Spanish police say.

Cops revealed on Tuesday they had arrested a 47-year-old man after a woman claimed to have been a victim of a sex crime while she was having a tattoo done in Ibiza.

The man arrested and remanded in prison after appearing before a judge in a closed court hearing has been described as an Argentinian-born Spaniard.

No-one was answering the phone this morning at the tattoo parlour where the alleged sexual assault occurred, a popular place with tourists near to the party resort of San Antonio.

It was thought the woman who sparked the police probe that led to the suspect’s arrest had phoned police in Scotland while she was still on holiday in Ibiza.

But a police source said: “She alerted police in Scotland when she returned home and they passed the information on to police in Spain to investigate.”

Going into further details about the suspect’s past which police first went public with yesterday/on Wednesday, the source said: “He has already been accused of sexual abuse and sexual assault on five previous occasions.”

The insider was not able to confirm whether the previous cases had resulted in court convictions.

Police released photos of uniformed officers putting the suspect into a police car yesterday/on Wednesday after his arrest but did not reveal details of his nationality in a statement about the detention.

A spokesman for the force said: “The Civil Guard through its Unit of Investigation of Sex Crimes in Ibiza, has arrested a man aged 47 on suspicion of a crime of sexual assault.

“The arrest took place on August 11.

“The victim, a British woman who was on holiday in Ibiza, reported the incident to police in Scotland where she lives normally who passed her information on to the Civil Guard.

“Investigators discovered the arrested man had previous for incidents of a similar nature and allegedly committed the sexual crimes in a tattoo parlour in San Josep de Sa Talaia, where the alleged victims hired his services.

“He allegedly molested the women by touching them without their permission while he was doing their tattoo.

“Ibiza Court of Instruction Number One has remanded him in prison.”

Although the tattoo parlour is in the municipality of San Josep de Sa Talaia, or San Jose in Castilian Spanish, it is in a beach area very near to the party resort of San Antonio which is popular with young British tourists.

It is currently coming up online as “temporarily closed.”

The man at the centre of the ongoing criminal probe has not yet been charged with any crime, as formal charges are not normally laid in Spain until shortly before trial.

But he is under formal investigation and given his past police record could be held on remand in jail for some reason before magistrates agree to any request by a defence lawyer to allow him bail while the probe continues.
