Feng Zhenghu Applies For Open Government Information on Length of Restriction on his Travel

April 16, 2017

Activist Feng Zhenghu from Shanghai was denied departure from Pudong International Airport on October 5, 2015. The border police stated that his departure could potentially “harm national security,” allegedly in connection with the 709 Crackdown. In February of this year, when Feng was granted a visa again to go to Japan, he planned to visit relatives there and bought roundtrip air tickets to depart on March 3. This time, he notified domestic security officers at the Shanghai Public Security Bureau in advance. But they did not know whether his travel restriction is still in place, because his October 2015 travel ban had originated from Beijing, not from the Shanghai police. The officers then asked Feng to change the travel dates to save him the embarrassment of being denied departure during sensitive dates (i.e., during the “Two Congresses”). Feng accepted their suggestion and changed his departure date to May 15. As it is still unknown whether his travel restriction had been lifted, Feng filed an open government information request with the Ministry of Public Security for the release of the terms of his travel restriction order—i.e., information on the year, month, and date when this ban is valid until.


冯正虎向公安部申请公开其被限制出境的期限

【编者按】出国了,怕他回国;回国了,又怕他出国,中国政府的心情真难捉摸。冯正虎2015年10月5日在浦东机场被限制出境,被莫名其妙地套上“出境后可能危害国家安全”的帽子,据说是与709律师案有关,现在已时隔一年半,不知是否已撤销禁令?

冯正虎又于2017年2月20日获得日本的签证,原定3月3日赴日,现在改为5月15日。特此,于4月16日事先向中国公安部提出政府信息公开(EMS:1098585633418),申请公开冯正虎被限制出境的期限(截止何年何月何日)。

政府信息公开申请书

申请人:冯正虎
身份证:310108195407012452
联系地址:上海市杨浦区政通路240弄3号302室
邮编:200433
手机:13524687100

申请事由:

申请人是上海市民,准备去日本探亲旅游,持有合法的护照及签证,已购一月内往返的飞机票。2015年10月5日在浦东机场乘中国国航CA919航班飞往日本,但在出境时被边检警察(警号:035697、035617)限制出境,他们口头告知:“北京市公安局的通知,根据《出入境管理法》第12条第5项,你出境后可能危害国家安全,所以不能出境。”

申请人莫名其妙地被搞大了,原本去日本探亲旅游一个月,游山玩水,买点日货,怎么成了“可能危害国家安全” 呢?申请人难以相信,强大的中国会如此脆弱。根据《中华人民共和国出境入境管理法》第十二条,中国公民有下列情形之一的,不准出境:(五)可能危害国家安全和利益,国务院有关主管部门决定不准出境的。北京市公安局不属于国务院有关主管部门这个级别,它无权决定禁止一个上海市民从上海出境,只有公安部才有这个权力。

按照法律与正常人的思维,限制出境的时间应该有一个期限,也可以向当事人公开。但是,至今没有一个部门及相关官员告知申请人。2015年10月5日被限制出境,至今已过一年半,申请人不清楚自己现在是否还被限制出境?

今年2月20日申请人再次获得日本签证,准备去日本探亲旅游,购买了3月3日赴日的往返飞机票。这次,申请人事先通知上海市公安局国保警察,但他们也不清楚申请人是否能出国,因2015年10月5日被限制出境的禁令来自北京。他们提议申请人改期,退票损失由他们承担,避免在敏感日子(两会期间)发生限制申请人出境的尴尬事件,申请人接受他们的建议,当即退票,考虑在本月底或下月出国探亲旅游。

据此,申请人依据国务院《政府信息公开条例》之规定,向中国公安部申请以下政府信息。

申请事项:

公安部2015年10月通知上海浦东机场出入境边防检查站限制冯正虎出境,因其出境可能危害国家安全。故申请公开冯正虎被限制出境的期限(截止何年何月何日)。

此致
