“Return My Sister Li Chunhua!”

ChinaGeeks translates a blog post written by a woman appealing for the release of her sister, a petitioner detained and mistreated in Beijing:

[Li Chunhua] is from Longkou, Yantai, Shandong, living in the Lutou township behind the temple. This year, she is 49 years old. Because her husband was beaten so badly he became mentally disabled, she felt the police had handled things unfairly and sought an audience [with higher authorities in Shandong].

On April 5, 2007, she was illegally detained for seeking to report this. Afterwards, she began writing requests and appeals via the internet, but the situation never was resolved.

On the morning of June 2nd, 2008, she went to the provincial Public Security Hall to report again, but was rejected for “not listening patiently to the worker’s explanation, and instead shouting loudly. Also blocking the complainants’ window, attracting a crowd, and seriously interfering with order in the P.S.H.” and escorted back to Longkou, where she was punished with seven days of “administrative detention”.

When Li Chunhua was being detained, her toes were bound with wire, she was shackled to an iron chair and then tortured using electrocution!
