Huang Qi's Mother Appeals to Central Authorities for Unconditional Release of Her Son

May 4, 2018

Pu Wenqing (蒲文清), mother of detained Sichuan rights activist Huang Qi (黄琦), recently sent an appeal to request the Central Inspection Team to instruct relevant authorities in Sichuan Province and Mianyang Municipality to openly and fairly handle Huang Qi’s case in accordance with the law, and immediately release Huang Qi, who is seriously ill, so that he may receive proper medical treatment. At the same time, Pu also sent an “Application for Release on Bail” to the Mianyang Intermediate People’s Court and its judge Zhou Dongqing.

Pu Wenqing stated in the appeal letter that Huang Qi was secretly taken by police from the Mianyang Municipal Public Security Bureau on the night of November 28, 2016, and has been held for more than 500 days at the Mianyang Municipal Detention Center on suspicion of “illegally providing state secrets abroad.” She points out that the alleged secret document that he disclosed, “A Report on the Handling of Chen Tianmao's Appeals and Related Issues by the Political and Legal Committee of Youxian District of Mianyang Municipality”—which disclosure was used by the authorities as the basis of their accusation—was not an official CPC, or “red-letterheaded,” document, nor did it bear a “secrets” stamp or even an official seal.

Huang Qi suffers from numerous serious ailments including swelling in the brain (cerebral edema), brain atrophy, heart disease, and emphysema. Currently he suffers from systemic edema, increased creatinine levels, degraded renal function, and overall worsening health. He has lost more than 20 pounds since he was first detained. Pu Wenqing is worried that the authorities will hold Huang Qi indefinitely as they cannot find any evidence against him.

Pu Wenqing said to Human Rights in China: First, my son is not guilty and I hope Huang Qi will come home soon. Second, Huang Qi’s helping of vulnerable groups and upholding of justice for individuals are in accordance with the rights granted to citizens by their country. The case against Huang Qi, based on trumped-up charges, is retaliation against him perpetrated by the local authorities. Third, Huang Qi’s physical condition is worrying; I am concerned that Huang Qi will die in prison.

Background on Huang Qi

Huang Qi is a veteran rights defender active online in China to promote information access by citizens and official accountability, including founding the Tianwang Missing Persons (天网寻人) website to help people find missing relatives, and the 64 Tianwang website (http://www.64tianwang.com) to provide rights defense related information and assistance to vulnerable groups. Following the Sichuan earthquake, he published an investigative report exposing the “tofu” school buildings that collapsed during the earthquake, which killed thousands. He has previously been imprisoned twice, serving eight years in total. As a result of beatings and other abuses he suffered during his previous imprisonment, Huang Qi developed accumulation of fluid in the brain, rheumatic heart disease, and other ailments. In 2010, Huang Qi was also diagnosed with chronic renal failure and other conditions, requiring large quantities of medication daily.


附件1:举报信

举报人:蒲文清,今年85岁,家住四川省内江市中区沱中路31号附44号。身份证号码5l100219331231032l。

被举报单位:四川省公安厅、绵阳市公安局、绵阳市检察院

反映问题的性质:绝症儿子遭打击报复入狱,羁押500余天。

事实和理由

我儿子黄琦创建网站18年,曾经受到包括《人民日报》《中央电视台》以及数千家国内外媒体高度赞誉。1999年中国互联网大事排名第二。黄琦前妻曾丽还在2000年底因创办网站而在人民大会堂获党和国家领导人颁发“中华爱国之心”光荣称号。

黄琦力挺习主席反腐为无权、无势的弱势群体发声,主要报道强征强拆。

2016年11月28日晚上,黄琦在成都市武侯区锦绣花园住所楼下被四川省绵阳市公安局警察秘密带走以“为境外非法提供秘密”罪羁押在绵阳市看守所500多天,黄琦泄露的秘密是《中共绵阳市游仙区委政法委员会关于陈天茂信访诉求办理情况及相关问题的报告》,此报告既不是红头文件也没有加密标志连公章都没有。《报告》是绵阳市游仙区政府官员让陈天茂拍照后黄琦将《报告》中部分内容发到网上。

黄琦羁押在绵阳市看守所至今500余天,要黄琦认罪并要挟黄琦要判十二至十五年(违背尊重保障人权,不得强迫自证有罪)。

黄琦的辩护律师李静林表示,当局是以“为境外非法提供国家秘密”罪关押一年4月多,这罪名本身是很荒谬的,因为从一般的常识,黄琦哪里找得到国家秘密,而国家机密是国家釆取保密措施的,而且那就是要有人泄密,那现在没有人泄密呀。黄琦关押一年4月多迟迟不开庭一直拖延至今,当局目前找不到任何证据可能会无限期地关下去。

黄琦罹患新月体肾炎,肾功能衰竭CRD3期,高尿酸血症。脑水肿,脑萎缩,3脑室4脑室扩大,导水管变窄。风湿性心肌炎,冠心病伴心律失常,肺气肿等严重疾病。

黄琦目前全身浮肿病情加重。肌酐升高,肾功能衰竭,体重入狱后下降二十多斤,这样我儿子黄琦会病死在狱中。

我请求中央巡视组领导敦促四川省公安厅、绵阳市公安局、绵阳市检察院依法公开公正公平处理此案,立即释放无罪患绝症的黄琦回家治病。
