My Second Statement on Refusing Officially-Appointed Lawyers

July 25, 2017

Among the detainees of the “709” crackdown, lawyer Wang Quanzhang is the only one about whom there had not been any news for nearly two years since his detention in August 2015. The authorities not only denied him access to the lawyers retained by his wife, but also suppressed the lawyers. Recently, two officially-appointed lawyers have attempted in various ways to persuade Li Wenzu, Wang Quanzhang’s wife, to agree to let them act as Wang Quanzhang’s defense counsel. In this public statement, Li Wenzu accuses the officially-appointed lawyers of violating procedure by following the authorities’ orders, and that their action is tantamount to colluding with the authorities to frame an innocent colleague as criminal, and helping them to make the charges against Wang Quanzhang a “fact.” Li points out that Wang Quanzhang currently is unfreed, and if it appears that he selected the officially-appointed lawyers himself, she believes that he must have been coerced into making that choice under torture. Li says she will use the lawyers she has retained for her husband and advises those who plan to become officially-appointed lawyers to conduct themselves with dignity. 


拒绝官派律师的再次声明

——709李文足

 

2017年7月14日和今天,先后有两位大名鼎鼎的律师通过各种“途径”找我。一位通过短信告诉我已经会见王全璋。我回复短信:我坚持聘请原来的律师。他又给我电话,被我拒绝。另一位是通过我信任的好友传话,坚持要见我,却不说原因。我本以为是全璋的同道关心家属,就见面了。没想到他竟然是官派律师!

从王全璋被抓的那天起,我就聘请了我非常信任的律师,在律师圈里也是有口皆碑的好律师!但是,他们一直被官方百般违法阻止,万般变态施压。

这当中有被官方威胁,被迫退出的李仲伟、袭祥栋律师;有被官方痛下杀手的王秋实律师(他被失踪后扣上的罪名是“颠覆国家政权”);有被官方狠辣摧残,变成“无所律师”的余文生律师;还有一直被官方实施各种打压却总不低头的程海律师!

这些律师作为王全璋的辩护人有一个共同特点:就是两年多的接力会见中,始终见不到王全璋!而且他们自身被官方狠狠打压!为什么?因为这些律师知道709案是个错案,他们为公义站出来,不会允许王全璋被构陷成罪!

而两位“准官派”律师,为什么在明知道家属已经聘请了律师的情况下,还被官方牵着鼻子,违反程序介入王全璋的案子后,再出面试图让我同意?你们今天违反程序跟官方站在一起,就是伙同官方把一个清白的同行陷害成罪犯,帮着官方把王全璋的罪名做实!

不管你是多么大牌的律师,不管你是不是熟人朋友,我李文足都不会“领情”,绝不会买账!以天津律协杨玉芙、温志胜为代表的官派(官驭)律师,在地球上已经是名副其实的“臭大街”了。你们要前仆后继的加入此行列,着实叫人震惊!而我所聘请的律师和我,不单单是维护王全璋个人的合法权益,更重要的是维护王全璋等709律师所坚持的法治精神。

因此,为近日频繁发生的官派律师上门的情况,我,709案王全璋律师的妻子再次严正声明:

第一,家属有权利聘请律师,我坚持自己聘请的律师。

第二,王全璋现在处在不自由的状态下,如他有看似选择的律师,一定是被酷刑的情况下,万般无奈的选择。(如许多709被释放人士所揭露的,就是专案组绝不允许他们聘请自己想聘请的律师。)

第三,我,坚决抵制所有官派律师。不管是哪个圈子的,如果你违背程序介入王全璋的案子,你就是与官方一伙,构陷王全璋。就算你曾经是我丈夫王全璋的熟人朋友,做了官派律师,也就是害我丈夫的人了,不再是朋友了。

此声明发出,如再有所谓的“律师”找上门,我不保证我的情绪会一直像今天这样稳定。

特此声明,请拟做官派律师者自重。
