(Video) Hong Kong Magazine Editor Questions Accuracy of China’s Earthquake Death Toll

Posted by Author on May 10, 2009

NTDTV, Via Youtube, May 09, 2009-

Chinese communist authorities have suddenly released last years Sichuan earthquake death toll numbers just days before the one-year anniversary on Tuesday. The announcement also denies that shoddy or tofu construction is to blame for school buildings that collapsed, killing thousands of students and teachers inside.

Ahead of the one year anniversary of last years devastating earthquake in Sichuan Province, communist officials announce that the number of students missing totals 5,335.

But Hong Kong Open Magazine executive editor Cai Yongmei doubts the figure, and she is not alone.

A Reuters news polls suggests it could be closer to 9,000. Other experts say it may actually be closer to 10,000.

[Cai Yongmei, Executive Editor, Open Magazine]:
They manipulate the statistics. When faced with disaster they reduce the figure. They have this tradition.

Ms. Cai says that the Chinese communist regime usually reports the good but not the bad.

[Cai Yongmei, Executive Editor, Open Magazine]:
If the truth was revealed, many officials would lose their jobs, so they will try to protect themselves. How do they protect themselves? They have to completely cover up the whole truth about the tofu construction.

Cai believes that the Chinese Communist Partys denial of poorly built schools will lead to public anger.

[Cai Yongmei, Executive Editor, Open Magazine]:
The Chinese communists blocked it. As the result of the blockage, social conflicts and crises have no way to be vented or resolved. The more it accumulates, the greater the explosion will be in the end.

Hu Liyun works for the International Federation of Journalists and is in charge of Hong Kong and China projects. He says that some foreigner reporters who received clearance to report were blocked from doing so by local authorities.

[Hu Liyun, International Federation of Journalists]:
The problem is some officials and unknown people have been trying to obstruct them. It is necessary to register as a procedure, but they kicked them out before they could even register.

At least 69,000 people died in the disaster.
