【禁聞】民間參選人再遭打壓 律師被毆打

【新唐人2011年10月4日訊】中國大陸的人大代表獨立參選人,近日再次受到當局嚴厲打壓、陸續被失蹤拘留。他們聘請的律師也遭到警方的無理騷擾與暴力毆打。被打律師質疑,如果律師的人身安全都得不到保障,他所代理的案子怎麼能夠得到公正的處理呢?

《希望之聲》報導,江西新余的獨立參選人,一直以來,受到新余當局的嚴厲打壓。為了調查舉證新余政府在基層選舉中的違法情況,9月29號,新余獨立參選人李思華與代理律師王成準備一同前往新余市人大,詢問有關選舉違法舉報的答復,但李思華再次被當地「維穩」人員劫走,至今下落不明。

當晚,王成律師入住新余金鼎賓館,10點左右,有人拚命敲門。接著很多人身穿警服、頭戴鋼盔,衝進他的房間。王成受到暴力毆打,頭部、左胳膊、前胸和後背被打傷。隨後,王成被警察帶到派出所,直到30號下午才獲釋。

另一位新余獨立參選人劉萍30號早上到王成律師的入住房間,發現一片混亂。

新余獨立參選人劉萍:「我一進去看,那個玻璃窗是很大一個窟窿,基本上玻璃窗全部被砸爛了,玻璃掉到下面去了。我一看就是毛骨悚然的、渾身顫抖的。兩條凳子的凳面全部打翻了,電水壺、託盤、電線全部分家了。遙控器、果盤、煙灰缸全部砸到地上、砸爛了。」

王成律師對《美國之音》表示,當地執法人員這樣粗暴對待他,主要是想阻止他繼續代理李思華控告當地政府,在基層選舉過程中的造假違法行為。王成質疑:如果律師的人身安全都得不到保障,他代理的案子能夠得到公正的處理嗎?

9月初,李思華向全國人大舉報,他所在的選區在人大代表投票過程中存在違法行為。比如,投票日沒有設立投票站,沒有向選民公布投票日期和地點,不允許選民參與選票監管和計票,以及當選人的票數存在明顯造假嫌疑等。

武漢的吳遠樹律師對當局的處理態度大表不滿。

「人大選舉律師觀察團」吳遠樹律師:「在選舉日,(當局)非法限制參選人李思華的人身自由。選舉之前和之後,也非法限制李思華的人身自由。甚至於前天,王成找李思華要舉報新余破壞選舉的問題,李思華也被限制人身自由。王成不僅被限制人身自由,而且被毆打,這個行為可以說,令人髮指。」

與王成律師、李志勇律師一起倡議成立「人大選舉律師觀察團」的吳遠樹律師,在7月4號也曾經被新余當局暴力毆打。

「人大選舉律師觀察團」吳遠樹律師:「為了使社會公眾能夠看清楚,我會把這個舉報的詳細內容與有關證據,儘快公布。現在這些證據,因為考慮到方便人大常委會來調查,所以這些證據我們都沒有公布。但是根據目前的情況,我們將儘快的公布我們的舉報內容和證據。」

9月29號,北京13位人大代表參選人發出公告,計劃第二天(9月30號)為獨立參選人韓穎進行參選宣傳。但從29號晚間開始,13位參選人大部分受到當局限制失去自由。

韓穎則在30號早晨,被海淀區萬壽寺派出所強行帶走「談話」軟禁,直到下午6點多才被允許回家。

韓穎:「這剛剛開始說,做個普法的宣傳吧,然後就這麼興師動眾,這麼小題大做,再往後走下去,可能會更難。但是還得要堅持下去,反正已經開始了,那就不能半途而廢呀。這是我的權利,我不能放棄呀,我堅持到底呀,肯定是要堅持到底的。」

另外,北京朝陽區小紅門鄉的參選人吳麗紅,連同他的兩位代理人,日前更是被當局投入看守所、拘留15天。

新余獨立參選人劉萍:「我們所有的行動,都是按照國家的法律法規和選舉法來進行的。那麼,真正破壞選舉的,是這些流氓,不是公民,公民在維護國家的法律法規,那麼踐踏法律法規的是這些流氓。」

Independent candidates running for

National People』s Congress (NPC) positions

were recently persecuted

by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime.

The candidates were threatened and

are facing ongoing detentions.

The lawyers they hired were also harassed

and beaten by police.

One of the lawyers asked, “If a lawyer』s safety can』t even

be ensured, how can the case be dealt with fairly?”

Sound of Hope radio reported that an independent candidate from Xinyu City in Jiangxi Province was brutally persecuted by local government departments. In an effort to investigate the government』s illegal actions during the latest local election, independent candidate, Li Sihua, and her lawyer, Wang Cheng, planned to visit the government office on Sept. 29. However, Li Sihua was abducted by local authorities the same day, and her whereabouts is still unknown.

Later that evening, lawyer Wang Cheng stayed at the Xinyu Jinding Hotel. At around 10 p.m., a group of armed police entered his hotel room and started to violently assault him. Wang Cheng』s head, arms, chest, and back were all injured from the beating. Shortly after, Wang Cheng was taken to the local police station and was not released until mid-afternoon the next day

Another independent candidate, Liu Ping, from Xinyu City went to Wang』s hotel room on the morning of the Sept. 30 and found a ¬complete mess.

Liu Ping, “When I entered the room, there was a big hole in the window. The entire window was broken to bits. The scene sent chills down my spine; I was trembling. The chair, electric coffee maker, hot plate, and electrical cords were all in pieces. The TV remote control unit, as well as a fruit plate and ashtray, were strewn all over the floor.”

Lawyer Wang Cheng told Voice of America that the police assaulted him, trying to prevent him from taking Li Sihua』s case and exposing the government』s illegal activities during the election voting process. He asked, “If a lawyer』s safety can』t even be ensured, how can the case be dealt with fairly?”

In early September, Li Sihua reported to NPC officials that the election voting process was rife with illegal activities. On election day, there were no voting stations and the voting location and date were not revealed to the public. Voters were not permitted to supervise the vote count and it was widely believed that the outcome of the vote was rigged.

Lawyer Wu Yuanshu from Wuhan was very unhappy about how the case was dealt with.

Wu Yuanshu, a NPC Election Supervision Committee Member, said, “Li Sihua』s personal freedom was restricted before, during, and after the election. When Wang Cheng went to talk to Li Sihua regarding the illegal activities in the election, Li Sihua』s freedom was again restricted. Not only was Wang Cheng』s personal freedom restricted, he was also beaten. Such actions are appalling!”

Lawyer Wu Yuanshu, who started the NPC Election Supervision Committee with Wang Cheng and Li Zhiyong, was also beaten by Xinyu City authorities on July 4.

Wu Yuanshu: “To expose the situation to the public, I will quickly publish details of the evidence that I』ve collected, in this case. To make it easier for NPC officials to investigate, I didn』t make the evidence public, but just gave details surrounding the circumstances. Now, I will publish the details of our allegations and evidence ASAP.”

On Sept. 29, Beijing officials said they would publicly announce the 13 independent NPC election candidates the following day. However, on the night of Sept. 29, most of the 13 independent candidates were detained or heavily monitored by the CCP regime.

On the morning of Sept. 30, independent candidate, Han Ying, was taken to the Haiding district Wanshou police station and detained until around 6 p.m. that afternoon.

Han Ying, “This is just a start; just a public announcement and they made such a big deal out of it. However, it will only get worse from here. However, I will persist. Since I already started exposing the truth, I will not give up in the middle. This is my right, and I will not give it up. I will persist and persevere!”

In addition, Wu Lihong, a candidate from the Beijing Chaoyang district and her two assistants were all detained by the CCP regime for 15 years.

Liu Ping, “All of our actions were conducted according to state laws. These people who are destroying the elections are thugs, not citizens. Citizens obey national laws and regulations. Those who violate laws are these thugs!”
