Chinese Policeman Appeals 14-Year Sentence over call for democracy; Lawyer Silenced by Court

Posted by Author on February 9, 2013


Sources told Human Rights in China (HRIC) that during the three-hour appeals hearing on February 7, 2013 that ended without a ruling, the Shenzhen Municipal Intermediate People’s Court repeatedly interrupted the lawyers for Shenzhen police officer Wang Dengchao (王登朝), who was sentenced to 14 years in prison on “embezzlement” and “obstructing official business.” Wang, 38, has maintained that these charges were trumped-up.

Wang’s wife, Li Yangting (李彥婷), who attended the hearing, said, “Wang said in court, ‘I did not embezzle even one cent. I demand an open and fair hearing of my case, so that everyone can see clearly whether I have committed crimes. I would accept even the death penalty if I could have an open and fair hearing.’” Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Author on February 8, 2013


China’s Yunnan Province will no longer hand out sentences to forced labor camps, according to a state media report.

Meng Sutie, head of Yunnan’s Political and Legislative Affairs Committee (PLAC), which controls all security services in the province, announced at a provincial PLAC meeting on Feb. 5 that Yunnan would immediately stop sending people to reeducation through labor camps on grounds such as “threatening national security,” “causing unrest through petitioning,” and “smearing the image of officials,” Communist Party mouthpiece Xinhua reported on Feb. 6.

China’s Bo Xilai Wife ‘has confessed’ to killing the British Businessman Neil Heywood

Posted by Author on June 22, 2012


Investigators have said that the wife of the disgraced Chinese politician Bo Xilai has confessed to killing the British businessman Neil Heywood, according to the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun.

Gu Kailai was detained because she was “highly suspected” of killing Heywood following a row over an unspecified financial conflict, according to official reports. A family employee, Zhang Xiaojun, is also being held.

It would be extremely rare for such a high-profile and politically well-connected figurenot to be tried after being publicly named as a suspect in such a serious crime. Experts on the Chinese legal system have assumed since the announcement of Gu’s detention that she will go to trial and be convicted. Read the rest of this entry »

Bo Xilai Rewarded for Torture in China, Awarded Journalist Jiang Weiping Says

Posted by Author on March 18, 2012


The beatings police gave Falun Gong practitioners on July 20, 1999 on the streets of Dalian City were brutal, according to a report on Clearwisdom, a Falun Gong website.

Thousands of Falun Gong practitioners had gathered to appeal for the release of practitioners arrested the night before—the official beginning, in Dalian, of the nationwide campaign to “eradicate” Falun Gong, launched by the then-head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Jiang Zemin.

The practitioners had formed themselves into four lines on the sidewalk near the city government buildings, held hands, and peacefully asked for the release of their fellow believers. Read the rest of this entry »

Feds Investigate New York City Comptroller John Liu’s Campaign Funding

Posted by Author on November 19, 2011


NEW YORK— A federal grand jury investigating possible irregularities in the campaign financing for New York City Comptroller John Liu has subpoenaed his campaign and a business whose employees were said to have donated to the campaign.

The New York Times, citing unnamed sources, reported that investigators are seeking records from his campaign as well as records from Maspeth, Queens-based Dynasty Stainless Steel, whose employees were said to have donated thousands to his campaign.

The probe was apparently prompted by a Times article published last month, which reported on journalists visiting close to 100 businesses and homes of the donors listed on Liu’s campaign finance reports. It raised questions about irregularities in the comptroller’s fundraising efforts, including where the money actually came from, if contributors gave their own money, or even if the donors ever existed.

Chinese Fund-raiser for New York City Comptroller John Liu Arrested

Posted by Author on November 19, 2011


A fund-raiser for the New York City comptroller, John C. Liu, whose campaign finances are under federal investigation, was arrested on Wednesday morning on charges that he helped illegally funnel thousands of dollars into Mr. Liu’s campaign account, according to court papers and people briefed on the case.

A criminal complaint unsealed on Wednesday says an undercover agent from the Federal Bureau of Investigation posed as a businessman seeking to donate $16,000 to an unidentified candidate for citywide office in New York. That candidate, the people briefed on the case said, was Mr. Liu.

The complaint details how the fund-raiser, Xing Wu Pan, in a series of meetings secretly recorded by the F.B.I., helped the purported businessman circumvent the city-imposed limit of $4,950 for individual donors by recruiting 20 fictitious, or straw, donors. Read the rest of this entry »
