Alleged XPZ arsonist ‘Alex’ returns to court in March


The man accused of setting fire to XPZ Supermarket located on the Sir Sydney Walling Highway last year will return to court on March 16 for committal proceedings.

Tianzhao “Alex” Feng, a former employee of the supermarket which opened in 2018, is accused of setting the blaze that was responsible for the destruction of the building.

Feng, 29, came under immediate suspicion after he went missing in the days following the 1st June, 2021 fire.

He was subsequently charged and made his first appearance before the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court that same month.

Feng has remained on remand at Her Majesty’s Prison as his applications for bail have all been unsuccessful.

The national of China’s immigration status has expired since his arrest and he has been unable to produce his passport.

He has also been unable to get an Antigua and Barbuda national to stand as surety, which is a requirement for bail.

This is the third adjournment in the matter.

Come March, Feng will learn whether sufficient evidence has been uncovered in order for the matter to proceed to trial in the High Court.

    • Just like how UPP going to deport COMRADE JOHNATHAN JOSEPH out of the party posthaste after he publicly endorse ALP at last night UPP ralley😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • I’m sure Jonathan got a royal cussing out from the man cow for puclicly declaring his loyalty to ABLP!!!

      • Gaston Browne,endorsed Pringle some weeks ago also.We are all HUMANS,not little Jesus’ as they would have us believed.

  1. He has such an innocent face. If he doesn’t have access to his China passport, the China Embassy can provide him with an emergency replacement. That’s why they have an Embassy here. Should be no problem.

    • Word on the street has it that Alex was one of the numerous Asians here that are used by China for forced labour and also he was apparently physically abused by his so called boss. It is, therefore, unlikely that that the Chinese dungeon looking house of horrors will do anything to actually help him. Alex also apparently had a local female companion and that is a big “no no” in racist communist China…human and/or animal rights as practiced in the westernized free world do not really exist in China. It is possible that Alex would be safer in jail being that his owner (and the other owners given a free pass in Antigua) is/are not exactly known to be humanitarian people. Slavery still exists in approx. 11 countries, China ranks no. 2 on the list.

  2. Antigua jail is way more safer for him than returning to the chinese. His alleged action is consider a serious crime by chinese standard and can lead to death if deported to china.
