Former Court Official Mr. Wang Zhansuo Held for Practicing Falun Gong; His Attorney Forbidden to See Him
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Wang Zhansuo is a lawyer from the Hengxintong Law Firm in Qingdao City, Shandong Province. Prior to relocating to Qingdao, he served as a deputy director of the Nongqi Brigade Intermediate Court of the Xinjiang Autonomous Region's Production and Construction Corps. More than ten agents from Huangdao District 610 Office and from the Changjianglu Police Station arrested him for practicing Falun Gong. His arrest and that of family members happened the night of March 4, 2010. Changjiang Police Station transferred Wang Zhansuo's case to Xuejiadao Police Station in late March. Officials from the Huangdao District Procuratorate issued an arrest warrant for Mr. Wang in mid-April before receiving the case from Xuejiadao Police Station at the end of May. He is presently being held in the Huangdao District Detention Center.
Mr. Wang's defense attorney requested a meeting with him, but 610 Office agents and those at the local police department denied his request. In May, Mr. Wang asked to be released on parole so he could attend a family member's funeral, only to have his request categorically denied. When his defense attorney visited the Huangdao District Procuratorate on June 7, asking to review his case, officials said he could not see them, but agreed to a meeting with Mr. Wang in the detention center.
When his attorney and another local lawyer rushed to the detention center, they were told they couldn't see their client. Detention center officials had reported their arrival to the 610 Office. The 610 Office then pressured Huangdao District Judicial Bureau officials to advise the local law firm to fire the local lawyer. He lost his job for merely accompanying Mr. Wang's attorney to the detention center.
When the attorney questioned 610 Office agents as to why he was not allowed to see his client, a staff member openly declared, "We will not allow any attorney involvement in this case; otherwise, we can't achieve our goal."
We last saw or heard from Mr. Wang Zhansuo over three months ago. We call for kindhearted people to pay attention to Mr. Wang's situation.
