On Lunar New Year day (February 19, 2015), Zhang Guanghua of Weining County, Guizhou Province left for Beijing to petition. He has been missing since he was forcefully taken back to Weining by Weining “petition interceptors” on March 4. His daughter appeals for the attention of human rights organizations and awaits her father’s early return.
Urgently Calling Attention to My Father Zhang Guanghua’s Disappearance after Interception of His Petition
Dear Human Rights in China,
I am the daughter of Zhang Guanghua. On February 19, 2015 (first day of the Lunar New Year), my father Zhang Guanghua left home for Beijing to appeal the miscarriage of justice that resulted in his three-year imprisonment. On the afternoon of March 4, my father was forcibly sent back to Weining by a “petition interception group” that was dispatched to Beijing by authorities in Weining County, Guizhou. He has since been missing, worrying all his relatives at home! The local government banned my father from making appeals in Beijing, the local court refused to correct their wrongful verdict, and now his path to petition has been blocked. I humbly ask human rights organizations to help me and protest against forceful imprisonment. Please act!
Appellant: Wang Ying
