Ailing Sichuan Rights Defender Huang Qi in Custody for Nearly Two years, Mother, 85, Urges Fair and Open Trial

August 22, 2018

Detained since November 2016, Sichuan rights activist Huang Qi was indicted in January 2018 on charges of “illegally providing state secrets abroad.” But the authorities have not yet brought him to trial.

The charge was based on Huang’s publication on the Internet of a document by the Political and Legal Affairs Committee of Youxian District of Mianyang Municipality that discussed the petitioning activities of a man named Chen Tianmao, and how the authorities should handle his case.

In her August 22 statement—the latest among multiple appeals over the course of Huang’s detention—Huang’s 85-year-old mother again contends that the government’s accusation is baseless, as the document that Huang published could not possibly have contained state secrets.

She highlights again the multiple illnesses that Huang is suffering and her fear that he might die in prison. She believes that in a fair and open trial, her son will be found not guilty and will be released so that he could receive proper medical treatment.

黄琦八旬老母为儿鸣冤

2016年11月28日,我儿黄琦在四川省成都市武候区居住地遭秘密抓捕,羁押在绵阳市看守所一年零9个月,绵阳市检察院已于2018年1月15日向四川省绵阳市中级人民法院起诉,至今已7个月多,不审不判,实属超期羁押。

黄琦逮捕是因泄露国家“绝密”档《中共绵阳市游仙区委政法委员会关于陈天茂信访要求办理情况及相关问题的报告》,该《报告》是绵阳市游仙区街道办事处主任黄兵拿给陈天茂看并要求访民陈天茂拍照的。现在黄兵主任仍在原单位上班做官,黄兵主任“泄露”出该《报告》,黄兵都无罪,黄琦应该也无罪。

访民信访要求能算得上是国家绝密级的“绝密”档吗?这显然是故意设陷阱陷害黄琦的一场阴谋。

黄琦目前在狱中病情加重,不审不判,超期羁押,我儿会含冤病死狱中。我强烈要求绵阳市中级人民法院依法公平、公正、公开审理黄琦一案,从人道出发、早日释放无罪患绝症的黄琦出来治病。
