Human Rights Lawyer: Why Is the Communist Regime So Silent on the Sujiatun Concentration Camp


123rd day of surveillance by secret police

It has been 37 days since Ouyang Xiaorong and Hu Jia were kidnapped by the Chinese Communist regime. By resorting to gangster like tactics the regime has shown its irreversible demise. Kidnapping Hu Jia in retaliation shows that it cannot use legal means to detain innocent people.

The discovery of the Sujiatun concentration death camp has shocked all Chinese people. I have received an increasing number of phone calls and messages from people inside China and overseas, enquiring about this matter. If the communist regime still maintains its deadly silence on this matter, then regardless of whether the Sujiatun incident is true or not, it will have dealt a fatal blow to the Chinese communist regime.

Looking at the history of the communist regime's existence, it has always claimed credit for every good deed it did not do! It has always claimed that every bad deed committed is a good thing! The communist regime is maligned for committing an evil deed yet it silently accepts this, the probability of this happening is perhaps less than that of the sun rising from the West.

The Sujiatun incident is not a trivial matter. If this is just a rumor, then the accusation borne by the communist regime is not something insignificant. They are being accused for committing crimes against humanity and genocide. Beside anti civilization groups in the top levels of the CCP there are also many international law experts and aides. When an incident of this nature breaks out, it is impossible not to have debate on how to handle this situation whether this [Sujiatun incident] is true or not. For the past few years, in times of crisis, the top level officials in the Chinese communist party have often said "handle emergency matters". Yet on this occasion, the communist regime has kept silent for more than ten days. This shows that they are too embarrassed to say anything about it.

The Chinese communist regime should be charged with crimes against humanity and genocide in Sujiatun but this does not mean everyone in the regime's top level is involved. Because the top officials have taken a long time in responding to such a shocking incident that concerns the survival of the party, this is not a bad thing. In past experience, when it came to issues that threaten the party's existence, the communist regime would immediately display exceptional unity. Regardless of whether they committed the bad deed or not, their first reaction is to deny it, then accuse "those with ulterior motives" of "viciously attacking" the party and the government. If the regime is able to respond quickly under such circumstances, often this is a clear indication of two messages. Firstly, they are confident of resolving this crisis; and secondly, this is an indication that they have rapidly obtained a consensus in dealing with this matter. History has proven, once they gain control of the situation they would claim all credit and bring an end to the matter.

Because they have remained silent on the Sujiatun incident for so long, at least this indicates that there are obvious conflicting views on how to handle this matter and they have not come to a consensus on whether to claim responsibility for this. Secondly, everyone is aware that if the Sujiatun incident is verified, the culprits must be the minority within the upper levels of the regime. Obviously the others would not want to share the same notoriety of slaughtering their fellow compatriots; thirdly, the charges of crimes against humanity and genocide implicated in the Sujiatun incident are pursued and punished internationally, this is something the Chinese communist regime cannot resolve using traditional means.

Once these two charges are established, international law court proceedings will begin and even heads of state will not escape trial by international law courts. The indictment of former Yugoslav president Milosevic by international law courts is a recent example. If top level officials in the communist regime attempt to cover the crimes of Sujiatun as a collective group, everyone will be viewed as playing an active role in this felony. Undoubtedly, this would be a deadly calamity for everyone in the top level. Every single communist official should and would have thought of this.

When the Sujiatun incident is verified, it will be the greatest tragedy in human society regardless of how many communist regime culprits were punished by law as a consequence.

At least judging by the regime's silence, it [their silence] shows that the majority of those in the upper levels of the CCP still have a conscience. They look forward to a beautiful future for their family members and for themselves. This is the first time their conscience has not been extinguished by party nature. At least it is possible to come to such a conclusion today. Whether or not they can jump out of the "party boat" which is rapidly sliding into a deep abyss due to the Sujiatun cruel massacre depends on how much they awaken to their conscience and human nature at this crucial point.

They cannot remain silent forever!The truth will definitely be revealed to the whole world! At present, heaven is still bestowing the last opportunity for every Chinese communist regime official to have a good future.

Today the secret police follow me from afar. The number of cars following me has also reduced to a great extent. In the afternoon, my wife's former colleagues in Xinjiang came to Beijing for a visit. For their safety, we met them at a restaurant and gave them a treat. There were at least three secret police vehicles following us from a further distance. When we entered the restaurant, they parked their cars opposite and kept watch from their cars. They did not follow us into the restaurant. After our meal, we went downstairs and saw them again, watching us from their cars parked at the same place in an orderly manner. Again, they followed us unhurriedly from afar and observed us returning home. Compared to previous occasions, this is much more "civilized".
