China formally arrests detained Canadians on state secret charges
 
00:57
Chinese authorities have formally arrested two Canadians detained last year, Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, on state secrets charges, China's foreign ministry said on Thursday, in what is likely to further increase tensions between Ottawa and Beijing. The measures were in accordance with the law, Lu said, and Beijing hoped Canada "will not make irresponsible remarks" about law enforcement and judicial proceedings in China. Businessman Michael Spavor, who worked with North Korea, and former diplomat Michael Kovrig were detained separately in December, shortly after Canada arrested Huawei Technologies Co Ltd Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, who faces extradition to the United States.

China's secret internment camps

...and the internet detectives working to find them. Become a Video Lab member! http://bit.ly/video-lab China has been quietly detaining its population of Uighurs, the country’s Muslim minority, in internment camps. First-hand accounts from inside the camps paint a brutal picture of torture and political indoctrination. At first, China denied the existence of these camps and tried to cover them up. But as a network of academics and activists uncovered evidence of the camps' locations, and the reality of what’s going on inside, China changed its story.

China formally arrests two Canadians on state secrets charges
 
04:25
BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese authorities have formally arrested on state secrets charges two Canadians detained last year, the government said on Thursday, in what is likely to further increase tension between Ottawa and Beijing.  Businessman Michael Spavor, who worked with North Korea, and former diplomat Michael Kovrig were picked up separately in December, shortly after Canada arrested Huawei Technologies Co Ltd Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, who faces extradition to the United States.  China has repeatedly demanded Meng be released, and has reacted angrily to extradition proceedings against her in a Canadian court.  “According to Chinese prosecutors’ approval, Michael Kovrig, due to being suspected of crimes of gathering state secrets and intelligence for foreign (forces), and Michael Spavor, for being suspected of crimes of stealing and illegally providing state secrets for foreign (forces), have in recent days been approved for arrest according to law,” foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a daily news briefing.  The measures were in accordance with the law, Lu said, and Beijing hoped Canada “will not make irresponsible remarks” about law enforcement and judicial proceedings in China.  The Canadian embassy in Beijing referred questions to Ottawa.  Canadian diplomats have been allowed to visit the two men in detention.  In March, China accused the two of involvement in stealing state secrets.  China has said it is fully guaranteeing both men’s lawful rights. Kovrig also holds Hungarian citizenship.  Kovrig works for the International Crisis Group (ICG) non-governmental organization which focuses on conflict resolution.  With their formal arrest, they could soon face trial, though it is unclear when that may be.  While Canada says China has made no specific link between the detentions of the two men and Meng’s arrest, experts and former diplomats say they have no doubt it is using their cases to pressure Canada.  Meng, 47, is the daughter of Huawei Technologies Co Ltd’s billionaire founder, Ren Zhengfei.  She was arrested at Vancouver’s airport in December on a U.S. warrant and is fighting extradition on charges that she conspired to defraud global banks about Huawei’s relationship with a company operating in Iran.  Meng was released from jail in December on C$10 million ($7.5 million) bail and must wear an electronic ankle bracelet and pay for security guards. She has been living in a Vancouver home that was valued at C$5 million in 2018.  Both she and the company have denied the U.S. charges.
Former CIA officer sentenced to 20 years for disclosing state secrets to Chinese for $25G
 
04:08
An ex-CIA officer was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison for revealing military secrets to China and potentially seeking to expose human assets who were once his responsibility.Kevin Mallory, 62, was found guilty back in June on charges of spying for China. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III handed down the sentence which is less than the life sentence as sought by prosecutors but double what the defense requested. The former intelligence officer was convicted under the Espionage Act for providing classified information to Chinese handlers in exchange for $25,000. TRIAL BEGINS FOR EX-CIA MAN ACCUSED OF SPYING FOR CHINA Mallory’s acts first became known to U.S. authorities after he was randomly picked for a secondary screening at Chicago O’Hare International Airport in April 2017 on a flight back from Shanghai with his son and customs agents found $16,500 in unreported cash. During voluntary interviews with law enforcement officials, Mallory then was caught off guard when a Samsung phone provided to him by the Chinese showed text conversations between Mallory and the Chinese recruiter. “Your object is to gain information, and my object is to be paid,” Mallory wrote in one text message to his Chinese handler. Prosecutor John Gibbs said that the former CIA officer was “desperate for money, and the most valuable thing he had was our nation’s secrets.” The $25,000 Mallory received was just a glimpse into what would have occurred if he hadn’t been caught, Gibbs added. FORMER CIA OFFICIAL: 'ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY TO TALK ABOUT' TAKING PREVENTATIVE ACTION AMID IRAN TENSIONS The 20-year sentence comes after multiple delays, with the judge seeking to clarify the exact value of the information Mallory provided to the Chinese, while the prosecutors and the defense clashed on the issue of whether the defendant tried to put human assets at risk. While a significant portion of the case remains classified, according to court records, prosecutors believe Mallory either sent or intended to send evidence that would have exposed human assets described as “the Johnsons.” Gibbs said Mallory was the Johnsons’ handler when he was at the CIA. Judge Ellis ruled that he couldn’t conclusively say that Mallory planned on exposing human assets, but said his “long-term intentions” were sinister. “If I had concluded that sources had been compromised ... I would impose a far more severe sentence,” Ellis said. The defense argued that a long sentence shouldn’t be applied, pointing to the small sum of money he received from the Chinese and that he voluntarily disd his contacts with the Chinese to his former employers at the CIA. CLICK TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP But the judge noted that the reason Mallory received arguably a small figure was because he was caught in an early stage of his work with the Chinese. Mallory’s attorneys say they will seek to appeal the conviction. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

State Secrets and Prostitution
 
03:59
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Several cases of "sex slaves" in Mainland China have recently been reported. The reporters, however, have been accused of "violating state secrets." One case features a courtesan who has entertained over 3000 clients, some of whom are senior government officials. All the above cases have triggered reflection on the underlying problems. Cultural critics in Mainland China comment that a nation without belief or spiritual pursuit can only indulge in a sensual carnival. The "unspoken rules" give rise to more corruption, resulting in greater social hypocrisy. Hong Kong Apple Daily Sept. 26 report, "Arrested Courtesan Releases List of Guest Officials." According to the report, some Chinese netizens released news about a courtesan on September 25. The courtesan, Ruo Xiaoan, published her "work diary" on Twitter, attracting 160,000 fans. Police soon identified her via phone signals and arrested her last week. According to her confession, in the past 7 years she has entertained over 3,000 customers. Her phone records list over 1,000 clients' phone numbers, many of whom are government officials, university professors and other local celebrities. Mainland writer Jing Chu: "China has become a nation without faith or belief, which is a disaster. A nation without faith will only indulge in sensual enjoyment. Apart from food, clothing, and sex, people do not have a spiritual pursuit." Netizens commented that police took away Ruo Xiaoan not only to gather information about her "customers," but also to prevent the list of celebrities from being released. Another netizen expressed his concern over Ruo, "After reading posts on her Twitter I feel very heavy." "I hope she will not run into the kind of sexual slavery as in case in Luoyang!" Li Hao works in the State Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision of Luoyang City, Henan Province. Southern Weekly reported that he imprisoned 6 women in his basement as his "sex slaves." Two of them were killed. The reporter Ji Xuguang, nonetheless, has been accused of "violating state secrets." Some netizens said that the police are most active in anti-prostitution campaigns. They hope that the police could show equal enthusiasm in anti-corruption activities. Mainland Writer Jing Chu: Apparently Chinese government bans prostitution, but the "unspoken rule" is that as long as you share benefits with the public security departments, they will not stop you. Otherwise, they will put your business to an end. On the surface they ban prostitution, but in fact they open the gate for it, which causes more corruption and hypocrisy. Ruo Xiaoan has been publishing her affairs with hundreds of men. Each of the 150 posts since Jan. 26 has received dozens of comments and been widely spread. From Sept. 26, however, her Twitter stopped updating. 有网友呼吁,〝谁去救救杭州名妓若小安!〞 Some netizens called for saving Ruo from the Hangzhou police. Jing Chu: "I believe the police just want to blackmail her, or to accumulate work credit for their promotion. Ruo has not been in this business for long, and has not violated the law. Why would the police arrest her instead of the real criminals?" Ruo claims that she enjoys reading and writing, and wants to be a courtesan of culture. Her last Twitter post reads, "I've been exhausted by the posts. Those people without sentiments, I really do not know how they live in this world."

China detains journalist on charges of leaking state secrets

The arrest of journalist Gao Yu is the latest in a string of detentions that critics say shows Chinese leaders' sensitivity to dissent ahead of the 25th anniversary of a crackdown on a pro-democracy movement around Beijing's Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989. \n Gao, who previously worked for state media, was a prominent supporter of the pro-democracy protests in 1989. She was jailed in 1993 for six years on charges of divulging state secrets. \n On Thursday morning, the official China Central Television showed Gao, with her face blurred out, confessing. \n "I believe what I have done has violated the law and has harmed the interests of (my) country," Gao said. "What I have done is extremely wrong. I will earnestly and sincerely take a lesson from this, and I admit my guilt." \n Gao is accused of illegally obtaining a highly confidential document and sending an electronic copy of it to a website abroad in June last year, Xinhua said, citing a police statement. \n She was detained on Ap

And turning to China. A court in Beijing has sentenced a Chinese journalist convicted of leaking state secrets to seven years in jail. Gao Yu was arrested last year for allegedly providing an internal Communist Party document to a foreign website. The 71-year-old, who is a well-known anti-government activist, denies the charges. Following the ruling, the European Union said the verdict raises concerns about the country′s human rights situation. ″The Delegation of the European Union to China is deeply concerned over the verdict of seven years imprisonment handed down to Gao Yu, veteran journalist Gao Yu, and this sentence has heightened our concern over the situation of human rights defenders in China, including bloggers and journalists, who have been prosecuted for expressing freely their views.″ Meanwhile, demonstrators in Hong Kong protested in the streets on Friday, shouting: ″Release Gao Yu ″ Human rights groups, including Amnesty International, have condemned the verdict as ″political persecution.″

A Chinese court jailed a journalist accused of leaking an internal Communist Party document to a foreign website for seven years on Friday, her lawyer said, a ruling that reflects the sensitivity surrounding the party's inner workings. Gao Yu, 71, who was tried behind closed doors in Beijing last November, was convicted on a charge of providing state secrets to foreign contacts, her lawyer, Mo Shaoping, said. Rights activists have condemned Gao's detention and trial, saying it indicates a widening crackdown on dissent. The United States called on China to release Gao at the United Nations Human Rights Council session in Geneva last month. Mo said Gao had indicated as she was leaving court that she would appeal.

Chinese Regime Tightens State Secrets Law
 
00:58
Chinese Regime Tightens State Secrets Law 2010-05-04 11:05 The Chinese regimes legislature passed an amendment on its state secrets law last Thursday. The amendment stipulates that Internet and telecom companies have to monitor information that could disclose "state secrets." They are required to delete such content from their networks and report instances to authorities. But the definition of state secrets in the revised law is still vague. Human rights groups and legal activists criticize the Chinese regime for classifying any information as state secrets, to avoid disclosing information or to prosecute dissidents. Businesses operating in China are already required to share information with the regime about clients suspected of state secrets violations. The revised law is set to take effect on October 1st. Its part of the regimes overall effort to maintain control of information, promoting further use of firewalls and other censoring tools.

Close-up of award with name plate, reading: "Shi Tao" FILE: Recent 12. Various of Yahoo! Hong Kong office and Yahoo Hong Kong website STORYLINE: A jailed Chinese reporter accused of leaking state secrets has joined a lawsuit against Yahoo Inc. in the United States which says the internet company assisted the Chinese government to convict dissidents, his mother said on Sunday. Shi Tao, who was sentenced in 2005 to 10 years in prison, is seeking monetary compensation from the Sunnyvale-based internet company as its subsidiary Yahoo! Hong Kong was accused of providing information to the Chinese authorities that led to his arrest. Shi, a former writer for the financial publication Contemporary Business News, was jailed for allegedly providing state secrets to foreigners. His conviction stemmed from an e-mail he sent containing his notes on a government circular that spelled out restrictions on the media. Yahoo has acknowledged turning over data on its users at the request of the Chinese government, saying company employees face civil and criminal sanctions if they ignore local laws. Shi's legal challenge, filed May 29 in US District Court, is part of an earlier lawsuit by the World Organisation for Human Rights USA which is suing Yahoo Inc., its subsidiary in Hong Kong, and Alibaba.com Inc., a Yahoo partner that runs Yahoo China, citing federal laws that govern torture and other violations of international law. Shi's mother, Gao Qingsheng, insisted her son was innocent and that the family would press ahead with the legal action. "I believe my son is innocent. We will fight until the end. We sue Yahoo ... not for Shi Tao, but to avoid any more innocent people from being prosecuted in the future," Gao said at a press conference in Hong Kong. The 61-year-old was in South Africa last week to receive the annual Golden Pen of Freedom prize on behalf of her son. On her way back home, she stopped by Hong Kong to meet lawmaker Albert Ho, who filed a complaint on the case to the city's privacy commissioner last year. Ho said he would also appeal to the privacy commissioner for its earlier decision that said there was not enough evidence to show Yahoo Hong Kong violated privacy regulations that led to Shi's arrest. Plaintiffs in the American case also include imprisoned dissident Wang Xiaoning and his wife, Yu Ling. Wang Xiaoning was sentenced in September 2003 on the charge of "incitement to subvert state power," a vaguely defined statute that the Communist Party frequently uses to punish its political critics. The Chinese government said Wang distributed pro-democracy writings authored by him and others by e-mail and through Yahoo Groups, an online e-mail community.

Earlier this week, Yanjun Xu, a senior officer with China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS) was lured to Belgium by FBI agents who then transferred him to the US for prosecution on economic espionage charges. The Justice Department said Xu had plotted since 2013 to obtain trade secrets from GE Aviation and other companies. He sought to recruit sources in and around the company and bring them to China, to woo their support and gain inside information on GE's technology.

China Jails Journalist Accused of Leaking State Secrets for Seven Years

A Chinese court has sentenced a journalist accused of leaking an internal Communist Party document to a foreign website to seven years in prison, a ruling that reflects the sensitivity surrounding the party's inner workings. Seventy-one year old Gao Yu was tried behind closed doors in Beijing last November. Her lawyer says she was convicted on a charge of providing state secrets to foreign contacts.

China jails journalist over leaked 'state secrets'
 
02:01
China has jailed a top journalist for seven years for leaking a confidential paper to a foreign website. Gao Yu, 71, had "illegally provided state secrets to foreigners", the court in Beijing said. China has not confirmed which document the case relates to, but it is thought to be a Communist Party strategy paper known as "Document No 9". The paper is said to call for aggressive restrictions on democracy, civil society and the press. Amnesty International called the sentence "an affront to justice". Gao was "the victim of vaguely worded and arbitrary state-secret laws that are used against activists as part of the authorities' attack on freedom of expression", said William Nee, China researcher at the rights group. Shang Baojun, one of her lawyers, said they were "very disappointed" with the verdict and would appeal. Gao was detained in April 2014. Weeks later, state television network CCTV aired a video of Gao, her face blurred, admitting she made a "big mistake". Gao's lawyers said she made the statement after police threatened her son. She was then put on trial in November. Another of her lawyers, Mo Shaoping, told the BBC the forced confession was invalid and would form the basis of the appeal. The highly respected journalist, who has written for media in Hong Kong and elsewhere, has already been imprisoned in the 1990s. She was convicted of sending party documents, including a speech by then-President Jiang Zemin, to a Hong Kong newspaper. Gao's sentencing comes amid a widespread crackdown on freedom of speech in China, reports the BBC's Celia Hatton in Beijing. According to media advocacy group the Committee to Protect Journalists, she is one of 44 Chinese journalists behind bars. The group says that China now has more journalists in prison than any other country.

US woman held in China for six months 'for stealing state secrets'
 
01:33
An American woman has been held by authorities in China for the past six months accused of stealing state secrets, her husband has revealed. Sandy Phan-Gillis's husband Jeff Gillis said he decided to go public about her circumstances ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to the US. China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei confirmed the investigation in a regular briefing on Tuesday. The US government has not commented. Her family deny the allegations. The New York Times reports that she has now been formally arrested, citing her husband and lawyer. House arrest Mrs Phan-Gillis, a naturalised American born in Vietnam, was detained in March, during a trade visit to promote the Texan state capital, Houston. According to Save Sandy, a website campaigning for her release, she has spent six months in so-called "residential detention", which it equates to house arrest. Her husband says she is now being moved to a more secure facility. Hong Lei said on Tuesday that Mrs Phan-Gillis was "suspected of carrying out activities endangering national security, and is currently being investigated by relevant departments". "We hope that the outside world will respect China's handling of this case according to law," he added. Trade visit Mrs Phan-Gillis was president of the Houston Shenzhen Sister City Association and consulted for Chinese and US businesses. At the time of her detention, she was travelling with Ed Gonzalez, who led the trade delegation on behalf of Houston's mayor, as well as Chief of Staff Jerry Peruchini, Houston businessman Vincent Chau and Chinese businessman Gary Ge. Mr Gonzalez told the BBC "there was nothing out of the ordinary" about the trip but described the sequence of events as they left China as "bizarre". They had been travelling around China for about a week when the group went through immigration control at the border between Guangdong and Macau, in Zhuhai, on 19 March. The group became separated, regrouping on the other side - without Mrs Phan-Gillis. After eventually moving on without her, a message was sent from her phone saying "something to the effect of 'I'm going to stay behind, to take care of personal matters'," Mr Gonzalez said. He added that "it was strange, but she's been there [China] hundreds of times," so he thought little of it. After returning to Houston several days later, Mr Gillis told them that the US consulate had informed him his wife had been detained, accused of stealing state secrets. Her family vigorously deny the accusations, which they say have never been properly explained. Consular visits Since then, consular officials have been able to visit Mrs Phan-Gillis periodically, to check up on her health, which her husband says is poor, and to pass on messages. The US embassy in Beijing would not comment on the story and referred the BBC to the US Department of State in Washington, which was closed at the time of enquiry. She is not the only Westerner to have been accused of secrets offences in China in recent years. Chinese-American geologist Feng Xue was released earlier this year after spending more than seven years in prison in China. In 2010, Australian national and Rio Tinto mining company executive Stern Hu, also of Chinese origin, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on trade secrets and bribery charges. A Canadian couple in the Chinese border town of Dandong, who helped Christians escaping North Korea, were accused of spying last year. The authorities released the wife on bail in February, but the husband was formally detained on criminal charges.

Chinese state media: Detained Canadians stole state secrets BEIJING – China's state news agency says two Canadians detained on suspicion of harming national security acted together to steal state secrets. Xinhua News Agency on Monday cited unidentified Chinese authorities as saying former Canadian diplomat Michael Kovrig violated Chinese laws by acting as a spy and stealing Chinese state secrets and intelligence with the help of Canadian businessman Michael Spavor. Both Kovrig and Spavor were arrested on Dec. 10 in what was widely seen as an attempt to pressure Canada to release Chinese executive Meng Wanzhou, who was arrested in Vancouver on Dec. 1 at the request of U.S. authorities. Canada said last Friday that it will allow an extradition request for Meng to proceed. Meng is chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei and the daughter of its founder.

The arrest of journalist Gao Yu is the latest in a string of detentions that critics say shows Chinese leaders' sensitivity to dissent ahead of the 25th anniversary of a crackdown on a pro-democracy movement around Beijing's Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989. \n Gao, who previously worked for state media, was a prominent supporter of the pro-democracy protests in 1989. She was jailed in 1993 for six years on charges of divulging state secrets. \n On Thursday morning, the official China Central Television showed Gao, with her face blurred out, confessing. \n "I believe what I have done has violated the law and has harmed the interests of (my) country," Gao said.

China jails journalist accused of leaking state secrets for 7 years

A Chinese court has sentenced a journalist accused of leaking an internal Communist Party document to a foreign website to seven years in prison, her lawyer said on April 17, a ruling that reflects the sensitivity surrounding the party's inner workings. Gao Yu, 71, who was tried behind closed doors in Beijing last November, was convicted on a charge of providing state secrets to foreign contacts, her lawyer, Mo Shaoping, said. Rights activists have condemned Gao's detention and trial, saying it indicates a widening crackdown on dissent. The United States called on China to release Gao at the United Nations Human Rights Council session in Geneva last month. Mo said Gao had indicated as she was leaving the courtroom that she would appeal against the decision. "As defending counsel, I do not approve of the judgment. I feel the court has not sufficiently respected the facts and evidence in issuing this mistaken sentence," Mo told Reuters by telephone. Gao was detained on accusations she had leaked a party document, which warned senior members against "seven mistaken ideologies", including the "universal values" of human rights, according to Gao's other lawyer, Shang Baojun. The State Council Information Office, the Cabinet's media arm, did not respond to a request for comment. Gao, who was detained last May, was accused of passing the document to Ho Pin, head of Mirror Books, Shang said. Ho told Reuters from New York that Gao did not pass him the document. The maximum sentence for leaking state secrets is life imprisonment. However, prosecutors recommended a sentence of 5-10 years based on the level of sensitivity of the secrets Gao was accused of leaking, Shang said. An unidentified official who answered the phone at the Beijing No.3 Intermediate Court declined to comment on the case. "This sentence has heightened our concern on the situation of human rights defenders in China, including lawyers and journalists," Raphael Droszewski, a first secretary at the European Union Delegation to China, told reporters near the courthouse. Gao, a freelance journalist who is well known for her articles critical of government leaders, has said she was innocent. This is the third time Gao will be jailed on charges stemming from her activism and for leaking state secrets. Gao is one of 44 journalists who were behind bars in China as of Dec. 1, 2014, making it the top jailer of journalists, said the Committee to Protect Journalists, a New York-based media advocacy group.

Forced Labor, Community Corrections and "State Secrets"
 
04:05
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews After the Third Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee, the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) made a high-profile announcement that the notorious "reeducation through labor" system would be abolished. However, many cases have revealed that the "black jails", brainwashing centers and "legal learning centers" that have long existed have played the same role as labor camps. Recently exposed secret government documents give a glimpse of the enormous darkness in China. On Nov. 29, the CCP's Vice Minister of Justice Zhao Dacheng attended the press conference held by the State Council Information Office. Zhao said the Ministry of Justice had finished a draft in advising legislation of a new community corrections system. Previously, the Third Plenary Session led to the decision of abolishing the "Reeducation Through Labor" system and replacing it with a "community corrections" system. China's so-called "community corrections" program began in 2003. In 2009, it began to conduct tests at select locations all over China, mainly targeting minor crime offenders serving short-term imprisonment. However, just like the "reeducation through labor" system, the "community correction" system has yet to be supported by law. Sima Tai, political commentator: "After the Third Plenum there were discussions about legislation for community corrections. By doing this, after the labor camps are abolished, they'll have a legitimate foundation to substitute them with community corrections centers. This can get rid of the embarrassment of the previously illegal forced labor system." The CCP's Vice Minister of Justice also claimed that "community corrections" will not become a disguised "reeducation through labor" system. Political commentator Sima Tai says similar community corrections systems in western countries are designed to help drug addicts or alcoholics correct their acts. Those people clearly understand that taking drugs or excessive drinking is bad so it has nothing to do with any form of disguised punishment. Sima Tai: "After the community corrections system was introduced into China a big problem has emerged. That is, the CCP has expanded the target groups of correction centers. They do forcible 'education' on prisoners of conscience, members of belief groups or political prisoners. In such case 'correction' becomes 'brainwashing', or 'forcible mind conversion'. Therefore it can easily work the same way as the 'reeducation through labor' system." Sima Tai commented that, whether community correction centers will become new labor camps depends on the CCP's attitude towards Chinese people. Ultimately the problem is still that China has no freedom of religion and assembly, which results from the CCP's one-party dictatorship. Over the years, the CCP has used harsh crackdown against Chinese civilians to maintain the "stability" of its regime. As a result, black jails and "training centers" imprisoning petitioners and dissidents can be seen across the country. There are also numerous cases of Falun Gong practitioners facing persecution via brainwashing centers or psychiatric hospitals. Recently, several secret government documents were posted online, giving a glimpse of the enormous darkness behind the curtain. Last year, Hu Cheng, a workers' rights activist representative from Changshu City, Jiangsu Province, went to Beijing to petition. He charged the board members of his company, Changshu Switchgear Manufacturing Co., for encroachment of equity. However, Hu was later arrested and put into a "legal education center". On Nov. 15, Hu Cheng posted his story and several government documents on Sina Weibo. One of the documents was issued by the "Changshu Joint Session on Prominent Petition Cases and Mass Incidents". The file claimed that Hu Cheng refused "persuasion" and insisted on petitioning in Beijing, therefore landing him in a "legal education center" in line with a secret official document named "Suggestions on lawfully dealing with petitioners' illegal acts in Beijing". Hu Cheng then requested the Provincial Public Security Bureau to announce the information in that secret file. Astonishingly, he was told that the file was a "state secret" and would not be open to the public. Hu told Deutsche Welle that using "legal education centers" to secretly imprison citizens according to some document that's a "state secret" is even worse than the labor camps. Political commentator Lin Zixu goes further, saying that the CCP only "unwillingly" abolished labor camps due to outside pressure. On the other hand, although places such as black prisons will continue to play similar roles after the abolishment of labor camps, 《神韵》2013世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/
