Blogger confined to psychiatric hospital against his will

first_img China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes August 23, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Blogger confined to psychiatric hospital against his will China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures News Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the confinement of cyber-dissident and blogger He Weihua in a psychiatric hospital in the central province of Hunan against his will. Relatives interviewed by Reporters Without Borders denied that He has any kind of mental illness and said they thought his confinement was linked to what he has posted on his blog www.boxun.com/hero/hewh/.”It is unacceptable that the Chinese authorities use such methods to silence citizens who have just expressed their views peacefully online,” the press freedom organisation said. “We call on the central government to intervene with the Hunan authorities to obtain He’s release. How can the authorities expect us to believe that a mentally ill person is capable of detailed investigative reporting?Reporters Without Borders added: “We fear that this case shows that the Chinese authorities have still not abandoned the use of punitive psychiatry against those who expose abuses and defy censorship.”He was confined against his will by the authorities in Hunan earlier this month after he posted an article on the Boxun site criticising an arbitrary increase in the price of pork by the provincial authorities. He also predicted the imminent collapse of the Communist Party as a result of internal corruption. He received a judicial summons from the Public Security Bureau after the article was posted in July.A local State Security unit had previously raided and searched his home in Hengyang (in Hunan province) in June, taking his laptop computer and warning him that he would suffer dire consequences if he continue to write about human rights. His blog http://www.boxun.com/hero/hewh/ contains many investigative reports and comments critical of the authorities.When reached by Radio Free Asia, He’s mother did not want to comment on his confinement, indicating that she thought her phone was tapped. She just said: “He is in a psychiatric hospital. He went there this month.” But a relative contacted by Reporters Without Borders linked his confinement to his articles: “He has written an enormous number of articles on human rights, especially on Boxun. I think he has all the qualities of a person of sound mind.”This is not the first time he has been confined. Members of the State Security Bureau gave him injections against his will when he was placed in psychiatric hospital in December 2004. When he was run down by a motorcycle in September 2006, the driver warned him not to continue his human rights activities.

Focus must not detract from delivering year to remember through Limerick…

first_imgWhatsApp Print NewsBreaking newsFocus must not detract from delivering year to remember through Limerick City of CultureBy admin – November 27, 2013 692 Linkedin Facebook Emailcenter_img Advertisement Limerick Chamber CEO has stated that the focus of Limerick National City of Culture cannot be deflected by unhelpful criticisms around the project.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Maria Kelly said “There seems to have been some questions raised, for whatever reason, at a national level over recent days and now, indeed, locally across a number of areas.“While some of these questions have been answered satisfactorily, other matters raised seem to be done so with an effort to undermine the project or, at the very least, gain headlines. This is not warranted and not in Limerick’s interest and you have to question the motivation for this.Ms Kelly added that “There has been a magnificent start to The National City of Culture initiative and specifically to Limerick City of Culture 2014, we had a fabulous launch, gaining all the right national attention and here we are only a few weeks later with people seemingly trying to undo that.“If people want to criticise and make assessments, at least let them be fair and happen in due course. Give some time for the National City of Culture project to develop and then we can have a true assessment then. Limerick City of Culture 2014 must be about results and from what we can see so far from the programme and events that have been secured from New Year’s Eve, a really excellent job is being done.The Chamber CEO said she understood why questions were raised regarding the process for the appointment of the CEO, but Limerick Chamber is fully satisfied that the action taken was necessary in the tight timelines and exceptional circumstances that prevailed as explained by Conn Murray.“Ultimately, the issues raised must not be allowed to cloud focus right now, which must be on delivering what will no doubt be a year-long programme that will live long in the memory for Limerick, Ireland and beyond. Patricia Ryan is an excellent appointment and we have every confidence she will deliver a great year for Limerick and leave a legacy of benefit to future National Cities of Culture.” Twitter Previous articleGardai to arrest dangerous driver who terrified pedestrians and childrenNext articleTesco Facebook row rumbles on adminlast_img read more
