China blocks anti-corruption website for 6 months

Posted by Author on November 10, 2008

By Chris Thomas, SOH News, on Thursday November 6th, 2008-

Since May 2008 when the News Office of Hubei authorities illegally shut down the anti-corruption website “China’s supervision network”, the chief of the website Wang Jin-Xiang appealed to Hu Jin-Tao many times without any outcome. He also disclosed that the authorities’ blockade of the website was not supported by any legal documentation and banned him from filing a lawsuit.

Wang Jin-Xiang expressed at an interview with a reporter that the website has gained popularity among commoners, but the authorities accused us of news diversion. Without any legal procedure, a website that exposes the degenerated society of China and communist officials has been sealed off.

He said: [recording]

First, we believe that this practice is inconsistent with the law. Second, our network is to supervise government officials, which is not against the law. Our network, in fact, won the favour of people (in Here) people are allowed to speak. The phenomenon of corruption and law-breaking practices need to be exposed while our website is a platform to encourage freedom of speech. We demanded them to provide legal paper, which the Hubei Provincial Telecommunication Administration Bureau also refused to issue.”

He added: “China’s Supervision Network has been the interest of many righteous people, and petitioners involved in many wronged cases for redressing would also like to publicize their situation over the Internet, in the hope of gaining legal consultations. They often talk about their cases on this website.”

Finally, he also said that China’s Supervision Network is different from other websites in the Mainland, for it stands out as the most in nationwide participation and large web traffic with several tens of thousands of registered users. The deliberate act of the Chinese Communists in blocking the most concerned website in the Mainland is groundless and it’s also unreasonable to ban lawsuit’s against it’s illicit action.

    Well Done! I taught in Guangzhou for 3 years (08/05 –> 08/08) and left out of frustration with corruption and abuses by the elite. I am sad for my Chinese friends who cannot escape, fight back or get fair treatment. I truly hope that the CCP will soon lose power and that the people will again control their country and have a say in their governance! Again well done. Denis
