URGENT: Local Court Dismisses Administrative Suit Brought By Chen Guangcheng's Eldest Brother

China Aid Association
(Yinan, Shandong—Nov. 1, 2012) A local court in the hometown of blind legal activist Chen Guangcheng this week dismissed an administrative suit filed by Chen's eldest brother alleging that local law enforcement personnel had acted unlawfully when searching for Chen after he had escaped from extra-legal house arrest, ChinaAid has learned.

The administrative lawsuit was filed by  Chen Guangfu on Oct. 23, alleging that employees of the Yinan county Public Security Bureau in Shandong province on April 27 had  illegally climbed over a wall of a citizen's private home in the night and, without producing any legally required paperwork, searched and destroyed property.  They had also used weapons and brutally beaten Chen's son, Chen Kegui. 

On Oct. 29, the Yinan County People's Court issued an administrative decision dismissing the suit, saying that Chen Guangfu "had not provided the corresponding material to prove [the facts] and failed to prove the facts that he alleges." Therefore, "this court dismisses the suit of Chen Guangfu."

ChinaAid founder and president Pastor Bob Fu expressed profound disappointment over this development.  He expressed the hope that, with the imminent transfer of power of China's top leadership, the local governments in Shandong province could respect the rule of law and protect citizens’ basic rights in accordance with law, so as to give a just accounting to Chinese society and the international community.

ChinaAid will continue closely monitor developments in this case and will give detailed reports.
