Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Wang Bo and Family Refuse to Accept Illegal Sentence - Appeal Stalled
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Wang Bo was illegally charged with "using x cult to sabotage the administration of law" and sentenced to five years in prison on February 2, 2007. Her father Wang Xinzhong and mother Liu Shuqin were sentenced to four years in prison with the same charge. Wang Bo and her parents refused to accept the illegal verdict. They appealed with the Shijiazhuang Intermediate Court before February 10, 2007, yet they are still waiting for the court to file the case.
Kind-hearted people are asked to please pay attention to this issue and be wary of the wicked Communist regime playing tricks in the dark to escalate the persecution.
According to law, the court usually takes one month or at most one-and-a half months to reach a verdict. Wang Bo and her family's case was tried in the Changan District Court on November 10, 2006. The verdict was not issued until February 2, 2007, nearly three months later.
Wang Xinzhong's lawyer went to the Changan District Court on February 7, 2007, and asked the judge for the verdict according to legal procedures. He also requested access to the case files. Preliminary Court judge Yue Yunzhi admitted that the verdict was delivered to the Wang Bo's family on February 2, 2007. He also admitted that the family's statement of appeal had been delivered to the intermediate court, but their case files were not yet transferred. The allotted period for an appeal is within ten days from the receipt of a verdict. The judge refused to give Wang Xinzhong's lawyer a copy of the verdict and also refused to let the lawyer read the case files. The lawyer cited the law, and the first court head Wang Xu couldn't refute him. Wang Xu threatened to report the case files to the Court Audit Committee, obstructing the lawyer to learn the situation of the case. As early as before the trial commenced, court head Wang Xu, who sat in the audience, announced the court regulations to ask everyone to turn off their mobile phones, while he answered calls on his mobile phone inside the courtroom. Wang Xu sometimes ran up to the judge during the trial and whispered into his ears, and sometimes talked to the public prosecutor. He also signaled the court police with his eyes and yelled at Wang Bo and her family.
Wang Bo's relatives went to the Shijiazhuang Intermediate Court on February 12, 2007, and inquired if the appeal was received. They saw judge Sun from the Secondary Trial Court and said they haven't received it. He said they would have to deal with it after the Chinese New Year as it was close to the holidays. Sun also assured the family that the Changan District Court would never dare to withhold their appeal, otherwise it would be held legally responsible.
The relatives went back to the intermediate court on February 27, 2007, the third day after court officials returned to work. They again inquired whether the appeal has been received and again met with judge Sun. He claimed the Changan District Court had reported the appeal before the Chinese New Year, but since it was getting close to the holidays, the intermediate court didn't accept the case and returned it. The relatives explained that they were concerned about Wang Bo and her family's mental attitude after being wrongly sentenced to prison. Judge Sun said he understood the issue. He said, "This is the current policy [on handling Falun Gong]. There is nothing we can do." The relatives said, "Then you know that Wang Bo and her family's sentencing was based on 'policies' and not the law. They are completely innocent." Upon hearing these words, several judges inside the office were startled and said together, "Don't say that! It won't help you and it won't help us!" Obviously, the judges were under great pressure from high above.
It is said that the court had issued the verdict because the Communist regime deems Wang Bo and her family's case might have great impact. That is why before the verdict was issued by Changan District Court, Changan District Court officials had first reported to officials at the Shijiazhuang City Intermediate Court, who in turn reported to authorities at the Hebei Province High Court to get approval.
