“We’ll strike you dead in one blow”: Jiang Tianyong Threatened by Domestic Security

New!
April 4, 2019

Jin Bianling (金变玲), wife of human rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong (江天勇) ,says in a Twitter post that in recent days, Jiang Tianyong’s family has suffered sharply increased monitoring and harassment by domestic security personnel from the Luoshan County Public Security Bureau, in Xinyang City, Henan Province. On the morning of April 3, on the way back home from the market, Jiang Tianyong and his mother were harassed by domestic security personnel. One of the domestic security officers said: “When you come out at night, we’ll strike you dead in one blow!” On April 2, Jiang’s father, en route to sweep graves on his electrical trishaw, was attacked by domestic security and thrown onto a roadside bank.

Lawyer Jiang Tianyong has been persecuted by the authorities for working on many human rights cases. He was arrested in November 2016. On November 21, 2017, he was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for “inciting subversion of state power.” He was released from prison on February 28, 2019, but was taken away right away by domestic security personnel instead of being allowed to go home. After Jiang went on a hunger strike, he was sent to his parents' home on the afternoon of March 2. He has been closely monitored and restricted in his movement ever since.


江天勇遭罗山县国保死亡威胁

 

近几日,河南省信阳市罗山县公安局国保对人权律师江天勇一家的监控骚扰突然升级了。

2019年4月2日清明扫墓的日子。上午,江天勇的父亲一个人骑着电动三轮车去墓地。国保便衣有2辆汽车并多人一路跟踪。10时许国保的车突然冲到江父的电动三轮车前面,江父一下子被别倒,73岁的江父连车带人摔倒在路边的田坎子里。国宝便衣在车上看着没有一个人出来救助。

4月3日上午10点左右,江律师和妈妈赶集回来,走到家附近的一个路口(这是国保固定看守、监控的路口,江律师回家必须经过此路口),一个国保站在路口中央用手机近距离挑衅性的对着江律师及江母拍摄。江律师指出他们行为的违法性并斥责他们,于是发生言语冲突。过程中一个五十多岁的国保当着围观众人边骂边大声威胁说“你晚上出来时我们一棍子打死你!”围观众人一片哗然,有几个气愤的(国保三四辆车一大群人日夜在此,附近居民受其骚扰不胜其烦)质问他们“你们也不出示证件不说姓名,你们是干什么的?政府的人怎么会这样说话?”,“你们究竟是干什么的整天几辆车一大群人在这里,你们有什么权力一棍子打死人家?”、“你们也不是我们涩港(灵山镇原名)的人,你们是哪儿的,说是公安的可说话怎么这么没素质?”、“你们说自己是公安,怎么要夜晚用棍子打死人家呢?你们到底是公安还是黑社会的?”

近几日国保对江律师及其家人的骚扰逼迫突然升级,不知目的何在。而且,国保当众公然威胁要夜晚对江律师下黑手,江律师及家人的人身安全确实存在极大风险。

江天勇是中国人权律师,代理过许多人权案件,因此遭致中共当局打压,并于2016年11月被逮捕,秘密关押半年,遭遇酷刑。2017年11月21日被以煽动颠覆国家政权罪判刑2年,2019年2月28日释放,出狱当天在监狱门口就被中共国保带走失踪。因绝食抗争,于2天后的3月2日下午4点被送到父母家中,但遭严密监控、限制人身自由。期间有好友王峭岭前往探望,竟然被抓到派出所关押6小时。
