    In Western countries, lawyers not only have stable incomes, but also enjoy high social status. In China, a lawyer's social status is embarrassing.

  • Bo Xilai's "Prison" Revealed

    Last week, ousted Chinese Communist Party politician Bo Xilai was expelled from the Party, and it was announced that he would be criminally investigated. Yet official media was silent about where the trial would take place, and where Bo himself was. He disappeared into the custody of central authorities in March, after the dawning of a complex scandal that's still unfolding. So far, it involves murder, massive corruption, and "inappropriate sexual relationships", plus other crimes. So where is Bo exactly? Hong Kong-based media Mingpao has reported this week that he is housed at the Kuangou Guest House of Huairou district, about 30 miles northeast of Beijing. It's essentially a secluded courtyard-style dwelling. Mingpao says once Bo is criminally charged, he could be transferred to Qinch...

In Western countries, lawyers not only have stable incomes, but also enjoy high social status. In China, a lawyer's social status is embarrassing. Human rights lawyers, although popular among people, are often challenged by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) prosecutors and legal departments. Human rights lawyers are often insulted. They are even injured and lose freedom. Although the international community pays great intention to Chinese human rights lawyers, and repeatedly condemns the Chinese authorities, the situation of human rights lawyers does not improve. Being a human rights lawyer is a unique occupation in China, caused by a large number of activists and social conflicts. They safeguard interests of vulnerable groups, protest against the powerful. They are not treated as lawyers. They have a very difficult situation of survival. Shandong Weihai human rights lawyer Li Xiangyang: "My cases are mostly sensitive. For example, suing the government or strong interest groups. Each case is subject to challenges from the authorities." Shandong Jinan human rights lawyer Liu Weiguo: "Usually we have some sensitive cases related to the government or related to spiritual belief." Human rights lawyers said that most difficulties are from the government, like prosecutors, judges and legal departments. For example, in the investigation stage of criminal cases, lawyers' meetings with defendants should be arranged by, not approved by, investigators. But the police often find excuses to delay it. Liu Weiguo: "The main conflict during the investigation stage is with the detention center. They may not arrange for you to meet the client. They would say you need to make an appointment, making it difficult for you for 48 hours." When lawyers need to find details and evidence, investigating authorities mostly ignore the requests, or even produce false evidence. Liu Weiguo: "Lawyers have an understanding of cases, have some questions about cases or need additional evidence. Some defendants may be not guilty. When lawyers provide this information to the police,the police might not investigate. They even threaten witnesses and make witnesses speak according to what police tell them. When lawyers look for witnesses again, their statements have changed." In Procuratorate, human rights lawyers are often delayed or even refused in reviewing documents. At court, lawyers are forced to go through "security scanning." Actually these are not defined in the Chinese Constitution. To lawyers, this kind of "security checking" is the biggest insult. Many lawyers were illegally detained for refusing and protesting against "security checking." After going through layers of obstruction and challenges, human rights lawyer are also prohibited from appearing in court or interrupted by the judge at hearings. Liu Weiguo: "Now the Public Security Bureau and the Procuratorate use of a variety of loopholes in the law to deliberately make things difficult for lawyers. This practice is undoubtedly trampling the rule of law. This is caused by lack of an independent legal system. The police manipulate the entire trial process, Procuratorate and the court." Almost all human rights lawyers have received threats, intimidation, humiliation and revenge from the public authority. They may even be seriously attacked, their licenses revoked, be illegally detained or sentenced, or even go missing. Chinese human rights lawyer Liang Xiaojun wrote in a blog: "From the detention of lawyer Wang Quanzhang to beating of lawyer Cheng Hai, violence against human rights lawyers is no accident: Gao Zhisheng is still imprisoned in Xinjiang,Teng Biao was thrown out of court by the court police in Shijiazhuang. Tang Jitian and Liu Wei's licenses were revoked, Zhang Kai and Li Chunfu were locked up in an iron cage in Chongqing. lawyer Li Jinglin was robbed in a hotel the night before the court in Manchuria,I was refused entry to the court and was pushed around by mobs in Shangdong." Li Xiangyang: "Under the totalitarian power, there is no law in China. The current legal system is far from resolving social conflicts." A lawyer sighed: "A country which truly respects rule by law also pays attention to the social status of lawyers. The degree of law implementation can be measured by the social status of lawyers. Lawyers are involved directly with law enforcement, so their understanding of law and evaluation cannot be matched. Therefore, it is easy to understand why even lawyers no longer believe the law in China.

Chinese authorities detained a human rights lawyer in his office to prevent him from meeting with Merkel. The lawyer had been invited to a function by the German embassy in advance. On Saturday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel wrapped up her fifth visit to China since taking office. While Merkel was able to reassure Chinese leaders on the prospects of the Euro and Europe's recovery from the sovereign debt crisis, she was prevented from meeting with a prominent human rights lawyer. The German Embassy in Beijing had invited Lawyer Mo Shaoping to attend a function with Merkel on February 2nd and afterwards to hold private discussions. [Mo Shaoping, Human Rights Lawyer]: "Chancellor Merkel hoped to meet with me and also the editor of 'Yanhuang Chunqiu,' Mr. Wu Si and have a talk in private. Mainly she wanted to discuss with me the situation of law and order in China, and the situation of lawyers in China." However on the day of the meeting, Beijing police locked Mo up in his office for several hours to prevent him from attending the event. [Mo Shaoping, Human Rights Lawyer]: "Afterwards they said there was no legal foundation for it. They were just following orders from above. China will hold the 18th Party Congress this year. It requires stability—to protect stability, and won't allow any other voices to be heard." In the end Merkel was only able to meet the editor of the publication "Yanhuang Chunqiu." They talked for about 40 minutes. Shandong based rights lawyer Li Xiangyang says this kind of suppression is common in China. [Li Xiangyang, Shandong Based Rights Lawyer]: "Arbitrarily limiting people's freedom, arbitrarily trampling on law and order, this is something seen most often in China. (The regime itself) says: 'we are gangsters, what do we fear?'" Human rights lawyers in China often meet with harassment or have their practices shut down. Lawyer Gao Zhisheng had his law license revoked in 2005 after investigating the Chinese regime's persecution of Falun Gong. He has been in and out of custody for the last few years. Currently he's believed to be held in Xinjiang. Chen Guangcheng, the blind legal activist who investigated forced abortions, has also been held under house arrest since his release from prison in 2010.

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews In recent years, vicious incidents violating lawyers' rights have been happening frequently across China, leading to sharp deterioration of the legal environment. Not long ago, over a dozen lawyers jointly signed an open letter strongly urging the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) authorities to punish those who violate lawyers' rights. This letter is addressed to the Lawyers Association, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, the Supreme Procuratorate and the Ministry of Public Security. It was jointly signed by over a dozen lawyers including Chang Boyang and Ma Lianshun. The letter lists cases reported by the media and on the internet in the past three months that violate lawyers' Right of Practice. Among cases listed were Guangdong lawyer, Sui Muqing, who was unreasonably dismissed by the local police when he was handling a case in Wenchang city, Hainan; Beijing lawyer, Wang Quanzhang, who was detained for no reason by the Jingjiang Court in Jiangsu Province while he was working on a case; Shandong lawyer, Liu Jinbin, who was beaten without cause at Xinyu City of Jiang Xi Province. Also included were Beijing lawyer, Wang Yu, and others who were harassed by the local police while investigating a case in Bobai City of Guangxi Province. They were also forbidden to meet parties involved in the case. Shandong lawyer, Liu Weiguo, was also unreasonably denied when he tried to meet with detained legal scholar, Xu Zhiyong, at the detention center. He was even taken to a police station where they illegally restricted his personal freedom for six hours. Lawyers pointed out in the open letter that these several cases are only the tip of the iceberg. Large numbers of events against lawyers' rights and interests have been withheld or concealed for various reasons. Shandong lawyer, Li Xiangyang, pointed out that not only are human rights lawyers in China having their rights violated, their lives are also being threatened. Li said he encountered malicious beatings and verbal abuse from judges during hearings, and was even deprived of the right to represent his client. Li Xiangyang: "I have submitted relevant documents, but they refuse to reply. Cases are very often put on hold. The judges act very rude towards us and our clients. China's current judicial system can be said to follow no laws. This society is run by unspoken rules. The constitution is equivalent to a pile of scrap paper." A few years ago, while Beijing lawyer, Tang Jitian, was working on a case, he was harassed, monitored and suppressed by National Security personnel. In 2011, CCP authorities also revoked his license to practice law. Tang Jitian: "In recent years, lawyers more widely participate in legal and social events, and provide more services to the public. The authorities are thus very hostile towards lawyers and use a variety of means to interfere with and even persecute them. So I strongly support speaking out for the rights of lawyers." Tang points out there is no justice in China, nor an independent system of lawyers. A lot of the people's issues cannot be solved via the law. As lawyers collide with the authorities while defending the rights of the people, lawyers are viewed by the authorities as so-called unstable factors or troublemakers, and so they face brutal repression. For example, when blind activist, Chen Guangcheng, was helping villagers in Shandong to defend their rights, not only was he sentenced to prison, his family has long been under illegal house arrest. Last year, Chen Guangcheng was able to flee from China, but his relatives are still under CCP's brutal persecution. There is also renowned human rights lawyer, Gao Zhisheng, who sent three open letters to CCP leaders appealing for Falun Gong. For this, Gao Zhisheng was sentenced to prison in 2007, in name of "inciting subversion of state power." Since then, Gao has been illegally detained and tortured by authorities, and is still detained at Shaya prison in Xinjiang. Senior legal expert Zhao Yuanming: "It is a lawyer's responsibility to defend the accused or represent citizens. But since the Political and Legislative Affairs Committee (PLAC) runs the legal system, they think lawyers fighting against them. They use violence to threaten lawyers. This behavior seriously violates the law." Zhao Yuanming pointed out that there is no fair judicial environment under the CCP's rule; particularly in the past decade, with Zhou Yongkang as secretary of the Political and Legislative Affairs Committee. Although he stepped down, the interests group he represents and his followers still don't follow the law, thus creating a such a chaotic situation in Chinese society. 《神韵》2013世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Hong Kong-based media Mingpao has reported this week that he is housed at the Kuangou Guest House of Huairou district, about 30 miles northeast of Beijing. It's essentially a secluded courtyard-style dwelling. Mingpao says once Bo is criminally charged, he could be transferred to Qincheng Prison, where his wife Gu Kailai is also believed to be imprisoned. A former detainee at Qincheng Prison has told Bloomberg BusinessWeek that senior officials held there live in relative comfort. Their cells are large and equipped with a writing desk, bathroom, and washing machine, and some can read and watch TV on a daily basis. Mainland Chinese human rights lawyer Li Xiangyang says this is a far cry from how dissidents or "common folk" are treated. [Li Xiangyang, Chinese Human Rights Lawyer]: "Qincheng Prison is as luxurious as a five-star hotel. It is a retreat for sacked senior officials who still get to enjoy special treatment, personal security, and entertainment facilities." Bo Xilai's downfall came as a surprise to many China observers. The former Party Secretary of Chongqing was once tipped to enter the top ruling circle of the Communist Party during this year's leadership transition. NTD is amongst the few media that have predicted Bo's disgraced exit from power, given his alleged involvement in gross human rights abuses, including the persecution of the Falun Gong spiritual practice.

During the judicial processing, Bo is likely to be transferred to Qincheng Prison, which is known to host the imprisoned rich and powerful. The following is our report. Since being taken away from his home in Beijing by the CCDI (Central Commission for Discipline Inspection) in March, Bo Xilai's whereabouts has been kept secret. Sources said Bo Xilai was placed under house arrest in Huairou before he was expelled from the party rank and public service on September 28. He had the freedom to walk around his residential area and visitation rights from relatives with certain restrictions. After September 28, he lost the freedom to walk around. A few days ago, Bo Xilai's holding place was revealed online. Bo is reportedly housed at Kuangou Guest House of Huairou district, 50 km northeast of Beijing. A photo reveals the Guest House of the Beijing Municipal Government is situated in elegant surroundings. It was said to have an excellent interior and is guarded by heavy security from the CCP Central Guard Bureau. It was reported that once the judicial process begins, Bo will likely be transferred to Qincheng Prison. According to an earlier report by foreign media, Bo Xilai's wife Gu Kailai, could be imprisoned at Qincheng Prison. It is understood that the Qincheng Prison senior officials' cell is large and equipped with a writing desk, bathroom, sitting toilet and washing machine. Some imprisoned officials can read and watch TV on a daily basis. Prisoners here are not required to wear prison jumpsuits. He Diankui, who once experienced Qincheng Prison himself, told China Newsweek that Qincheng Prison is known for the detention of fallen senior officials. The so-called "204 prison room" is beyond imagination. It's carpeted with a sofa bed, meals are offered at the Ministerial standard with produce purchased from the senior cadres supply point, shark fin even being one of the food items. Mainland human rights lawyer Li Xiangyang indicates that the CCP struggle system harbors even the sacked senior officials who are considered the "bureaucratic class" and enjoy special treatment. Chinese human rights lawyer Li Xiangyang: "Qincheng Prison is as luxurious as the five-star hotels. It is a retreat of sacked senior officials who still get to enjoy special treatment, personal security, and entertainment facilities." Li Xiangyang points out that, by contrast, the Chinese people suffer oppression at the hands of the CCP. In 2001, Li Xiangyang was kept at Linyi City Social Welfare shelter of Shandong because of his activities of defending local people's rights. He says that the shelter is, in fact, a dark prison. Li Xiangyang: "You can't imagine what kind of a dark prison it is. It is a reinforced concrete house with an iron top. There's no roof. In summer, the house is damp. There's water dripping everywhere. The walls are wet, the floor is wet. Even the bedding is wet. I could wring water out of the bedding." Shen Peilan, a petitioner, says that injustice is everywhere in the Chinese society. Sacked officials still get treated well, whereas ordinary people are treated poorly. Petitioner Shen Peilan: "I was detained twice. The detention center conditions are very poor, especially the food. The rice has a moldy odor, and the vegetables are soiled. It tastes awful." Li Xiangyang comments that the CCP hijacked China. The CCP's power is above the law. It is amazing for any ordinary Chinese to survive torture in prison. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Former Chairman of China's Jianlibao Group Zhang Hai was released early from prison in 2011. Recently, Guangdong Provincial Judiciary Department confirmed that there are issues of fraud regarding Zhanghai's merits for early prison release, and there is a criminal investigation into this matter. But Zhang Hai himself has fled abroad. On January 20, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) mouthpiece CCTV published on its official microblog, "Guangdong Provincial Procuratorate confirmed Jianlibao former Chairman Zhang Hai has fled abroad." Zhang Hai is from Kaifeng City, Henan Province. In 2002 he became Chairman and CEO of the Jianlibao Group. In March 2005, Zhang Hai was detained by the Public Security Bureau of Foshan City, Guangdong Province on suspicion of misappropriation of funds. In February 2007 Foshan Intermediate People's Court sentenced him to 15 years imprisonment for embezzlement and misappropriation of funds. In less than a year later Zhang Hai's sentence was reduced to ten years for merits of "reporting others." In 2011 Zhang Hai was released on parole. He only spent a total of six years in prison. China human rights activist Qin Yongmin and founder of "China Human Rights Watch": "Zhang Hai must have come out through networking." Qin Yongmin: "The law allows sentence reduction, but the reduction cannot be more than half of the term. He needs to be in prison for at least seven years. So he must have used 'backdoor networking' for his only six years of imprisonment." There were questions from the society on Zhang's early release. The authorities did not respond until last November when Guangdong Provincial Procuratorate mentioned in a document for the first time: "The Case of Zhang Hai's Sentence Commutation by Using Favoritism." On January 10 2014 Guangdong Provincial Supreme Court stated on its official microblog that Zhang Hai's prison merits were fraud and a case has been filed for investigation. It is said Zhang had "Three Sentence Commutations via Merits". Chinese media reported these merits are now disclosed to be fraud. Zhang got the first sentence Commutation for reporting a robbery, because prison staff sold him clues. There had been exposures of "Buying Merits" at Guangdong Maoming prison prior to this. China human rights lawyer Li Xiangyang: "Prison fraud is a very common phenomenon, such as fake medical parole or various sentence Commutations, The powerful and the rich are all released early." Qin Yongmin: "The Chinese judicial system is completely dark. There was once a special report on the dark secrets of the Sichuan prison system. From the Chairman to each level below, they sell release to major criminals, who have money. How about the poor? No matter how hard they try, they would be lucky to survive there, not to say come out." Qin Yongmin was once locked up by the CCP authorities for 22 years. He is called "Jail Emperor". According to him he often saw major criminals immediately released as long as they open up the relationship. Qin Yongmin: "China's judiciary system is just like this. As long as you have money and identify opportunities, there will be no obstacles. But wronged cases are not solved without money or power. I met many people who suffer obvious injustice. But investigators told the prison that they could not handle it, although there is injustice. Any change will be back to our future work. So real injustice cannot be corrected, but money can help major criminals. This is the reality of China." A Chinese netizen stated online that petitioners with suspended sentences are even arrested by police and township carders on the train if they leave home, so how can such serious criminal flee? Li Xiangyang: "Everything can be done in China as long as there is money or power. There is no legal or moral bottom line. So they do not have any concern." Li Xiangyang said the root cause of judicial corruption is the result of a one-party dictatorship. It is said Zhang Hai's sentence reduction case involved over 40 people in the public security and the court system. Many people are being investigated and transferred to judicial departments because of this case. Zhang Hai's whereabouts and details of his escapee have not been revealed. 《神韵》2014世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews The three Xingyu activists, Liu Ping, Wei Zhongping, and Li Sihua, were sentenced over the crime of provocation on June 19. Yushui District court of Xingyu City ruled, six and a half years and three years imprisonment. What have the three activists done to deserve such heavy sentences? The following is our report. In April last year, Liu Ping, Wei Zhongping, and Li Sihua, three activists from Xinyu City, Jiangxi Province, were first accused of inciting subversion of state power. They were arrested on unlawful assembly, which was changed to provocation, gathering people to disturb public order and crimes of sabotaging legal enforcement by organizing and using evil religion, in court. However, within the 9,500 words of the court's verdict, nothing about how they have picked on, quarreled or disturbed public order were mentioned. In fact, the three of them were only displaying banners stating, "Representatives ought to be elected! Long live the civil spirit," and "Strongly demand official property declaration" in front of their home. Faced with such absurd authorities, Wei Zhongping roared in the end of his statement in court: I should have taken the plaintiff's chair and accused those who abused power. Zheng Jianwei, lawyer: I don't think they're guilty. Guilty or not is based on whether or not they have caused any damage to the society, what have they done to cause the damage, and who are the victims of the damage. Si Weijiang, Liu's lawyer to Reuters: It isn't fair, it isn't just. The laws can just be bent however the government wants it in politicized cases. Amnesty International issued a statement condemning the heavy sentences of the three activists. William Nee, Amnesty International's China Researcher: The charges against these activists were preposterous. Having a small private gathering and holding a banner in a lobby entrance demanding financial transparency from officials should not in any way constitute "picking quarrels" and "illegal assembly." In fact, the demand of publicizing official wealth has touched the CCP's tender spot. A 2010 survey by the State Council Research Office, the Central Discipline Inspection Commission, and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences compiled data of 1.31 million governmental official wealth. The data showed these officials occupied 80% of the national wealth. In the national personal savings of 7.52 trillion yuan (USD 1.2 trillion) by the end of June 2010, these officials' personal savings were 4 trillion yuan (USD 640 billion). In the total investment of 6 trillion yuan (USD 960) in the stock market these officials again accounted for 4.5 trillion yuan (USD 720 billion). Liu Ping, as a laid-off worker, had intended to represent laid-off workers in the 2011 National People's Congress election. She had organized netizens to visit Shandong blind activist Chen Guangcheng. She also went to Wukan in support of the villagers' rights. Chen Shuqing, Chinese dissident writer: Her acts were a shock to the existing institution. Frankly, it attacks the political privileges of the CCP bigwigs and other privileges of the entire society. Chen Shuqing Zhejiang indicates that Liu Ping's daringness frightens the CCP. Hu Jia, Beijing activist: The heavy sentence continues to be the custom of the regime to threaten and to maintain stability. It is also clear that this June 4 has imposed great challenges to the regime. They are in a panic. Hu Jia says that the regime has posed heavy sentences to activists Xu Zhiyong and Ding Jiaxi earlier this year. Despite the threat and the maintenance of stability, many Chinese continue to pay their solidarity to Jiansanjiang and Qufu. Hu Jia: This type of heavy sentence will only disgust more people. Many more will get dissatisfied and totally disappointed by the system. Recently, the unofficial universal suffrage in Hong Kong was subject to 10 billion hacker attacks suspected from China. The online voting system was subsequently crashed. Hong Kong's Apple Daily commented that in the eyes of the Communist authorities, any demand of right to vote in Hong Kong or mainland is to challenge the ruling CCP, is to subvert state power, and thus be subjected to unscrupulous suppression. On the day of the Xinyu court hearing, Liu Ping's daughter and mother were refused to attend, while many local activists were "having tea" and disappeared. More than a dozen activists made it successfully to Xinyu. Among them, Liu Xiangyang, Sun Tao and Yang Chong were arrested. 《神韵》2014世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews The weekly German newspaper Die Zeit published an article on March 7, entitled "Custom-Ordered Heart". The article discussed the story of prisoner who, despite his case being considered for review, was executed on time. This was according to a contract, in order to prolong another person's life. Although this sounds horrific, this has continued in China. The powerful Chinese Communist Party(CCP) officials know the truth clearly, while hiding it from the public. The article questions whether the West can, with financial temptation, create a boundary to separate itself from involvement in China's organ harvesting transplants? This article quoted Beijing lawyer Han Bing's microblog post. Han disclosed that a death row prisoner had been quickly executed in a hospital. Yet a few days ago, the supreme court had informed the prisoner that his case would be reviewed. Han Bing said that obviously, the executors could not wait any longer. This was because the mans organs were being awaited for transplantation. Before the execution, the prisoner was forced to sign a contract to donate his organs "voluntarily". Li Xiangyang, legal volunteer: "Lots of executed prisoners have their organs removed, without their prior consent. This has been well known in China, where vast numbers of transplant organs are illegally acquired. To be exact, organ acquisitions come from murders." The article mentioned Mordechai Shtiglits, an Israeli patient who received his heart transplant in China. It is real life proof that Chinese doctors can "forecast the death of an organ donor". Shtiglits had been on the organ transplant waiting list for a long time, before his trip to China. Yet, a week after his arrival in China, he was informed that he would get his new heart the next day. The doctor vaguely hinted that the organ donor was a 22-year-old traffic accident victim. The question is, how the doctor knew in advance that a 22-year-old man would die the next day, and without damaging his heart? How did the doctor know that the young victim would be a blood and tissue match for Shtiglits? Dr. Wang Wenyi, Pathologist, Mount Sinai Hospital: "He really knows beforehand on the day when he will do the surgery, and there will be a heart available. That is, he knows in advance in which day someone will surely die. This can only be possible in China, where the authorities have claimed the organs come from executed prisoners. The organs are taken from Falun Gong practitioners, the truth of which have been unveiled in recent years. The CCP authorities have murdered these persons, for the purpose of getting their organs." The article said that western hospitals and physicians provide technical support for Chinese transplant centers. Pharmaceutical companies supply China with anti-rejection drugs. Western advisers offer consultation to Chinese authorities, pretending to promote transplant surgery innovation. In truth, they are pursuing business interests in China. Vehicles imported from the West have been converted into mobile execution vans, in which organs are removed. Western adviser to the Chinese government pretend to promote the change in transplant surgery, while pursuing business interests in China. Xing Tianxing, critic: "Although those who are involved haven't directly harvested organs, facing this great sin, they have chosen to keep silent to pursue self interest. I think this is really a shame in terms of human conscience." Xing Tianxing adds that organ harvesting is by no means only limited to Falun Gong practitioners. It is actually a challenge against human values. Xing Tianxing: "Falun Gong practitioners have continued to appeal to the international community to help stop the CCP's atrocities. This is by no means limited to a persecution against Falun Gong practitioners. It's in fact against human conscience and human nature; a devastating act by the CCP." In reality, there are Western hospitals and doctors that refuse to enter this field. Reportedly, Stephen Lynch, chief physician at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, requires a written assurance from physician applicants for training. It said, "Medical technology acquisition from the Princess Alexandra Hospital shall not be applied to transplants that use executed prisoners as organ donors." Jacob Lavee, the Israeli doctor of Mordechai Shtiglits, pushed for reform in banning reimbursement of health insurance for transplants done abroad. Since new Israeli laws on transplant came into force in 2008, no more Israeli patients have flown to China for transplants. 《神韵》2013世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

She's only ten years old. On February 27th, daughter of democracy activist Zhang Lin was detained for 20 hours by police from Hupo village, Anhui Province. Zhang Anni was taken from her school in Hefei and kept in solitary confinement for 20 hours. Her father was detained along with her but was not allowed to be with her during detention. Zhang Lin said that police from Hupo village ransacked his house earlier that morning. They took his keys, computer, cell phone and stole $626 (3,900 yuan). They then took him to the Hupo police station where his daughter was later detained as well. Now, father and daughter are reunited but the trauma is not over. Zhang Lin says she has little appetite and has been moody ever since. [Zhang Lin]: "Right now the child isn't willing to leave the house, and isn't willing to see anyone. She had a big fright and she is now quite irritable." Zhang Lin says he is looking to hire a lawyer to address the ill treatment of his daughter. [Zhang Lin]: "No matter what country it is in the world, their laws all forbid this kind of action against someone who has not come of age; someone who is counted as a child. Even if she had broken the law, only under the supervision of a guardian could the police take her into custody. Yet the Hefei police department didn't pay attention to that, and directly arrested her." Shandong-based rights lawyer Li Xiangyang says the girl's detention broke China's laws by detaining her without a guardian. [Li Xiangyang, Shandong Rights Lawyer]: "It is because of the political issues with her father, that the daughter of Zhang Lin was put in jail, this is inhuman behavior. This behavior, that so obviously breaks the law and regulations, is the behavior of the [Chinese] government." Zhang Lin was sentenced to two years in prison for taking part in the 1989 student democracy protests. He has been sent to prison three more times since for his continued activism. All together, he has spent 13 years behind bars. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntd.tv Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C

As the world comes into a new year, Chinese citizens share their hopes, expectations and wishes for 2013. A state-run newspaper, Modern Express, invited Chinese citizens to post their comments in a forum called "Compare Your Wishes for 2013." Topping the list were things like health, money, and love, with a pay raise being the most common wish. But for a petitioner from Jiangsu province, his wish is more simple. After being sent to a labor camp twice for appealing to the government, Dong Shifa will be content with what most already have. [Dong Shifa, Petitioner from Jiangsu Province]: "My wish isn't easy to grant. I want to live a normal life and have a home. My biggest wish is that my appeal be granted. However, while this wish is within sight, it is not within reach." For activist and Lawyer Li Xiangyang, his hopes are for China's future. [Li Xiangyang, Activist and Lawyer] "I hope in China, this disaster-ridden land, people can see democracy and the rule of law soon." Sun Wenguang was a professor at Shandong University and previously tried to run in local elections. He says he thinks that Chinese people are waking up to their rights and will soon take action. [Su Wenguang, Former Professor, Shandong University]: "More people are waking up, and when they do, it won't be just talk, but also action. They will be able to unite. Everyone wants freedom, democracy, the rule of law, and a constitution." With new leadership in China, many are predicting change. But what form that change will take remains to be seen.

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Chinese Communist Party Premier Wen Jiabao recently visited Beijing South Railway Station. During his visit, a Qingdao female petitioner Lin Xiuli successfully crossed the cordon. She handed her petition materials to Wen himself. Wen Jiabao shook hands with her and promised to help. However, after Wen left, Lin Xiuli was brought back to Qingdao and detained inside a hotel. Lin told NTD that the authorities planned to make a false identification to claim she had mental illness. Outsiders remarked Zhou Yongkang and his subordinates had been illegally acting this way for a long time; they always thwarted Wen Jiabao's involvement to hide the truth. Chinese democrats said that civilians could hardly receive justice under the CCP's regime. At 2pm on May 9, Qingdao petitioner Lin Xiuli was staying at the waiting hall of Beijing South Railway Station. She found CCP Premier Wen Jiabao talking with a girl among a group of people. At that time, she did all she could to pass through the temporary guard line and rushed to Wen Jiabao. She managed to give her materials to him. Wen has promised to help her. (Lin Xiuli) says: "He told me to not worry. He kindly looked at me throughout. Even after he has walked far away from me he still looked back and told me not to worry." Ge Zhihui, a handicapped petitioner from Beijing said that she was also on the spot during Wen's visit. After finding that Lin Xiuli managed to talk with Wen, she had attempted to do the same. However, right after she made the very first step, she was dragged back by plain-clothes police behind her. Ge Zhihui: "I found that I could not get close to the Premier after being dragged away. Then I began to cry out "Premier! I was unjustly treated!" I thought the Premier had heard me since a large group around him suddenly came to me. They blocked my mouth and held my throat. I was almost suffocated." Lin Xiuli told NTD that police brought her to a room after Wen left. They took away her petition materials and called the Beijing office of the Qingdao local government. She was then sent back to Qingdao. She was also told that she would be identified as having mental illness. Lin Xiuli: "They clearly know that I have no mental disorder. Therefore, it's an obvious for them to make a false identification. Since the Premier has received my materials, they planned to diagnose me with a mental disorder. They want to detain me into some psychiatric hospital before my case is put into investigation. After that, I will have no more rights to speech." Analysts remarked on Lin Xiuli's case. Such suppression was carried out by the Law and Political Committee, led by Zhou Yongkang. Zou Wei, Chinese democrat: "What can Wen do even after he received her materials? There's still little way to change the suppression of ordinary people. Most petitioners are still suppressed and persecuted as usual." Zou Wei remarked that one person's kindness is far from eliminating suppression on civilians, which was supported by the whole regime. Zou Wei: "To completely change the regime, more people need to stand out. With the efforts from only one or several people, even from Wen Jiabao, I don't think this will utterly solve the problem." Li Xiangyang, a Chinese lawyer and activist, remarked that the CCP is an evil group, protecting its own interests. Since Wen Jiabao was also inside the regime, he had no solution to Lin Xiuli's problem. Li Xiangyang: "Even if Lin Xiuli's case were solved, how about the millions of other similar unjust cases? There is no way to handle with all of them." Lin Xiuli had said that it was probable she would be persecuted rather than receiving just treatment. Therefore she called for more media attention on her case. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews The nonprofit humanitarian organization, Dui Hua, reported on Jan. 7 that 2,321 people were faced with arrest and indictment for the crime of "endangering state security" (ESS) in 2013. Activists confirmed that every Chinese, including the perpetrators, are the victims of the unprecedented suppression and the ruin of the state mechanism by the Communist regime. Statistics recently released in China Law Yearbook (CLY) indicate that in 2013 indictments for the crime of ESS— the category of crime that comprises subversion, splittism, and their incitement, reached 2,321, next to Tibetan protests in 2008, reported Dui Hua. Of the hundreds of people who faced ESS charges in 2013, only 31 made it into Dui Hua's Political Prisoner Database for lack of transparency. Included are Tibetans, Uyghurs and Han Chinese. Zhao Haitong, an activist from Xinjiang was also included. Human Rights Watch chairman Qin Yongmin: "Zhao Haitong, a native of Xinjiang, is quite popular. He worked outside of Xinjiang for a couple of years. He defended for the human rights of the Uyghurs after he returned to Xinjiang but was sentenced to 14 years in prison. The sentencing was not known until several months later through various channels. We have friends at local who would visit him in the prison, but were only arrested as well." Qin Yongmin commented that many activists not so well known to outsiders were also arrested and indicted. Many cases have been hidden due to their families being warned not to disclose the facts. The 1997 revised Criminal Law included the crime of endangering national security which was based on crimes of counter-revolution. However, it is simply a change of title, not content, according to activist Hu Jia. Hu Jia: "The so-called crimes of counter-revolution are in fact 'anti-party'. Since 1997, the essence of crimes of counter-revolution was repackaged with a new title, 'endangering national security.' The Chinese Communist Party was never empowered by the people, it is not legal. That means the CCP has never been legal since 65 years ago." Crimes of endangering national security and a number of related charges have been manipulated by the regime to suppress dissidents, and resulted in unprecedented repression in China in recent years, said Hu Jia. Hu Jia: "2013 was the year of 'assembling a crowd to disturb order at public places'. 2014 became the year of 'picking quarrels and provoking troubles'. These ordinary charges have also been manipulated by the CCP as part of 'endangering' state security. In fact, it indicates endangering the interests and privilege of the party." Qin Yongmin: "The number of arrests has been unprecedentedly large in these two years and probably the largest since 1989. There is no doubt about it." Qin Yongmin analyzes such a large scale of arrests is likely to continue for many reasons. On top of the unprecedented crackdown, there is also the reason that after 30 years of market economy development, the degree of maturation of civil society has intensified the conflict of social benefits. Almost everyone in China, including the perpetrators, is inevitably faced with the violation of interests." Qin Yongmin: "Even the national security staff were complaining when I was interacting with them. Everyone has his share of difficulties. The reason for that is the lack of a fair system in China today. This unfair system is still being executed." Human rights lawyer Li Xiangyang indicates that those corrupt officials who ruined the national mechanisms are the ones endangering national security. Li Xiangyang: "All of the officials within the system are the ones who truly incite, subvert, and oppose the nation. They have trampled national law, created social conflicts, and brought chaos to society. What they have done are exactly subverting and opposing the nation." Li Xiangyang indicates, officials such as Zhou Yongkang, Xu Caihou and Ling Jihua have undermined the operating rules of the nation and society through their massive corruption and violation of the law. Those who were arrested on charges of endangering state security are rather the people who speak on behalf of human rights and the rule of law in China. 《神韵》2015世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/
