Man Snatched Off Harbin Street and Secretly Sentenced Four Months Later

A 37-year-old man was walking down the street this April when he was snatched by several police officers in Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. Despite his 70-year-old father's frantic efforts to locate him, the authorities kept his detention location and subsequent trial secret.

It became clear to Mr. Jiang Bo (姜波), a native of Qiqihar City doing odd jobs in Harbin, that the police had been following him for quite some time. His only “crime” was his persistence in exposing the persecution of Falun Gong.

Following his arrest on April 4th of this year, Mr. Jiang was given an “administrative detention” on April 16th. Xiangfang District Procuratorate in Qiqihar City approved his arrest on May 20th, and forwarded his case to Xiangfang District Court on July 24th.

The court tried Mr. Jiang on August 22nd and sentenced him to four years for possessing lawful items, including more than 50 paper money notes with messages exposing the persecution of Falun Gong printed on them, a laptop, a portable hard disk and a USB drive.

Mr. Jiang immediately vowed to appeal his verdict after being notified of the result.

Mr. Jiang's father eventually discovered that his son is now being held in Shuguang Village Detention Centre in Nangang District, Harbin City.
