Chen Yunfei Sentenced to 4-Years Imprisonment for “Picking Quarrels and Provoking Troubles” (Chen Yunfei’s FinalStatement in Court Attached)

March 31, 2017

On March 31, 2017, renowned Sichuan dissident and activist Chen Yunfei was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment by Chengdu Wuhou District Court on the charge of “picking quarrels and provoking troubles.” As he listened to the judgment, Chen gestured the “peace” sign with both hands, and said he would appeal because the sentencing was too “lenient.”

On March 25, 2015, Chen and about 20 other individuals were returning to Chengdu from a trip to Xinjin County, Chengdu to honor slain students Xiao Jie and Wu Guofeng who died during the 1989 June Fourth crackdown, when the group was held up by roughly 100 armed special police. They were criminally detained the following day on suspicion of “inciting subversion of state power” and “picking quarrels and provoking troubles.” The Chengdu Municipal Procuratorate later dropped the charge of “inciting subversion of state power,” and moved Chen’s case downward to the Wuhou District Procuratorate. Chen’s subsequent indictment, on the charge of “picking quarrels and provoking troubles,” was based primarily on his rights defense activities, including building a funeral hall to criticize the Wuhou government. Chen’s case has previously been heard once in Chengdu Wuhou District Court on December 26, 2016.


陈云飞被以“寻衅滋事罪”判刑4年

2017年3月31日

郭海波律师:【陈云飞案通报】上午九点半陈云飞着长睡衣,微笑高举双手向所有人示意,他拒绝回答法官和检察官的问话,只回答辩护律师的问话。中午12:30休庭半小时吃饭。下午三点二十三分复庭,当庭宣判四年。陈云飞当即双手作胜利手势,并表示上诉,理由是太轻了。四点四十,律师在被再次搜查安检后,离开法院。

隋牧青律师:陈云飞案当庭宣判,陈云飞获刑四年,陈云飞微笑着打出胜利手势,表示要上诉,理由是判刑太轻。

为了方便做中国梦,陈云飞今天穿睡衣出庭受审,庭审中也曾梦游。

隋牧青律师:【陈云飞案通报】上午和成都郭海波律师一起会见了陈云飞,会见持续约两个半小时。我和郭海波律师上午九点整到达新津县看守所,近十点才得以会见。

陈云飞上次庭审前被搜身,不允许带书面发言材料,身穿一件带“公民”字样的文化衫被强行扒下。明天庭审,如果当局仍非法禁止其携带书面材料,他会拒绝出庭受审,如此陈云飞会不会被抬进法庭呢?

日前成都武侯区法院声言庭审前要对我和郭海波律师进行特别安检措施,也不允许我们携带自己的电脑,我们已声明拒绝这一非法且蛮横的要求,一直未得到相关回应。如果武侯区法院坚持非法安检等措施,我们可能被迫拒绝参加庭审。

陈云飞寻衅滋事案庭审次日系西方社会“愚人节”,但愿陈云飞受审日不是中国官方的“愚人日”。

 

附:陈云飞的法庭最后陈述

亲爱的律师、公检法老千们:

我被折腾了两年多了,我的感觉就像孙悟空在炼丹炉中,舒服极了。对我的迫害、殴打、戴脚链,就像做数学题,越难越有趣,意义越深远。再次感谢公检法老千们对我的打造,感谢你们把我打造成宣扬言论自由、反对独裁暴政的品牌,推向全世界极大地满足了我的虚荣心,其实我没有那么好,那么勇敢。

此案稍微正常,懂常识和有良知的人,都明白我无罪。老千们的指控才是明目张胆的寻衅滋事。我所做所说完全是现有法律框架内的活动,是对周永康、李春城、李昆学等伪公仆暴政的控诉、揭露与批判。成都市、四川省、中央政法委老千们参与对这类政治犯的折腾,只有两种可能:要么是周、李爪牙,秋后算账;要么是你们由周时期的跟踪、恐吓、殴打、黑监狱、绑架直接变成了现在的赤裸裸的监狱。进一步说明现在公检法老千们更毒了、病得更重了。在周、后周时期,我对在监狱门口徘徊的官员,总是苦口婆心地提醒:前面是万丈深渊、回头是岸,但他们仍我行我素,后来陆陆续续都进去了,从周永康到李春城,再到李昆学,网友们都笑我是乌鸦嘴,提谁谁入围。

而今现在眼目下,大家要问我最后陈述,我只能告诉你们,老千们悬崖勒马,独裁必亡。文强之后是王立军,李昆学之后是……在此我也祷告,主啊,求你宽恕我(此罪非彼罪),也请你宽恕老千们,因他们不知道他们所做的。以上祷告是奉天父天子耶稣之名。
