CCP Bribary, Hu Jia Reveals Inside Story
Chinese rights activist Hu Jia has recently
had his political rights restored.
Hu Jia told our NTD reporter that Beijing authorities tried
to bribe him with a large amount of money.
This bribe was to make him consider pleading guilty
and to give up the international human rights rewards. Hu Jia refused.
According to Hu’s words quoted in the Epoch Times,
when Hu was in prison in 2008, he was nominated
the Nobel Peace Prize and was awarded the Sakharov
human rights prize by the European Parliament.
At that time, Beijing authorities told him that if he declares
that he’s not appropriate for the prize, the authorities can
release him and compensate him with twice the prize money.
The Sakharov human rights prize was worth 50,000 EU,
about 500,000 RMB at that time.
Double of the price will be a million RMB.
Hu says that money is from the taxpayers,
so he wouldn’t accept it.
Hu said that a prize given from the European Parliament
to an imprisoned Chinese rights activist makes the CCP feel like it is losing face on foreign affairs.
According to Hu, even the General Chief of the Beijing
National Security who came to inform about the message felt that its approach was dirty.
In 2008, Hu Jia was sentenced to 3 years in prison
for 『inciting subversion of state power』.
This attracted international attention.
He was also awarded the Sakharov Prize
for Freedom of Thought.
This is the highest human rights
award from the European Parliament.
Hu Jia was released on June 26, but was monitored
all day by 200 public security officers.
Hu was not allowed to see visitors.
Drink Driving Accident Instigates Shaanxi Mass Tumult
Early morning on July 14, a mass tumult
caused by a traffic accident happened in Shaanxi.
A drunken private car driver hit a taxi.
He and other men stepped out of the car,
and beat the taxi driver, injuring his eyes.
This incident irritated other fellow taxi drivers.
Hundreds of taxi drivers came to site and blocked the road.
They asked the police to give out names
of the perpetrators, which lead to 6 hour traffic jams.
According to a witness, many public
security officers were dispatched.
The driver of the car escaped into a police car.
Over 300 taxi drivers parked their cars on
the intersection of Taibai Rd and Qingjiang Rd.
Four intersections were blocked.
They stopped the police taking
the perpetrators called Chen and Ju.
Thousands of people and drivers surrounded
the police cars, and six policemen were trapped inside.
Eventually, riot police were dispatched to arrest and disperse
people on site, and to rescue the six policemen.
Seven taxi drivers have been arrested so far.
A netizen commented that a drunk
car driver had beaten someone.
However, the police arrested taxi drivers
instead of the car driver.
Can we only complain that the taxi
driver’s father is not “Li Gang”?
