Yang Tianshui is Granted Medical Parole for Brain Tumor, Friend Urges Donations for Treatment

August 16, 2017

In 2005, Jiangsu dissident Yang Tiansui was sentenced to 12 years in prison. As he was completing his prison term, he was diagnosed as having a brain tumor and has been granted medical parole. The authorities have refused to let Yang leave China to seek medical treatment abroad. As his family is unable to pay the RMB 300,000 for treatment in China, a friend has initiated a donation drive, so that he may get the treatment he needs.


杨天水急需援助

友人

2017年8月16日

杨天水,1961年出生,本名杨同彦,江苏省泗阳县人,曾任职江苏省社科院,知名异见作家,独立笔会成员,八九民主运动亲历者,中国民主党发起人之一。

曾因参与89年天安门民主运动,于1990年被以“反革命宣传煽动罪”重判10年,剥权4年,2000年5月出狱后,继续投身于民主事业,筹组中国民主党苏皖党部;2005年12月被以“颠覆国家政权罪”重判12年,剥权4年。2017年8月12日获悉,其于前一天突然被查出脑瘤,狱方通知家人为其尽快办理保外就医。杨天水先生累计坐牢22年,即将刑满释放,要么死在狱中,要么保外就医,家属承担高昂的治疗费用。在家属被明确告知不得出国就医,只能在国内接受治疗的情况下,30万元的治疗费用,对一个普通家庭来说仍然是一个天文数字。据悉,杨先生准备转入南京军区总医院。希望各路朋友以各自可以承受及安全的前提下提供帮助。
