Gu Yimin Missing for Two Months, Wife Asks Authorities—What Crime Has He Committed?

October 31, 2016

On September 9, Suzhou activist Gu Yimin was put under “residential surveillance at a designated place” on suspicion of “subversion of state power.” In this case update written by his wife (see below), Xu Yan, Gu’s lawyer’s request to meet with him was rejected, and her own efforts to locate her husband were also in vain. Xu, who is currently pregnant, asks: what kind of secrets does Gu’s case involve? And why haven’t the people handling his case even shown themselves? Do that have any humanity?


顾义民案

今天是10月31日,顾义民已经失踪快两个月了,在这一个多月里我一直在寻找,苏州公安局去了好几次,电话打了好多个,听的最多的就是,“我不是办案人员,具体事情我不清楚,我会替你向上级反映的”但是他们的反映永远都是忽悠……记得上星期我打王天宇警官(警号:642410)电话(0512-65225661--21872)他说:上次你律师来时我们安排了会见,但是你律师走了。但是陈进学律师在那等了他们一天没给答复,他走了你说你给会见,这是神马意思……还有陈律收到的是不准与会见决定书,怎么你就能让律师会见了?这个王天宇是何方神圣?你一直强调你不是办案人员,那我问你要办案人员电话你又不给,难道那些办这个案子的人都是见不得光的吗?既然你们抓了,那就应该是人去抓的,不可能鬼去抓的吧?人都失踪两月了,办案人员都不露脸,这个是啥机密大案子呢?

我一直都是这几个问题,我生孩子谁来签字,谁来照顾,婆婆不管事,就靠我妈一人,还要带大的,这可咋整?苏州公安局直属分局的领导们你们有人性,有家人吗?顾义民是犯了多大的罪呢?你们这样藏着掖着,既然他犯了不可饶恕的罪那你们直接把他判刑,把他永远关在监狱里面,你们不要再去找我家人,亲戚,你们想判就判搞那么多麻烦事干什么?要是想抓我,现在就来,不用和我家人说的,你们抓顾义民不也是没通知家里人吗?
