A Chinese amateur whistleblower, who spent his free time embarrassing Communist Party officials by posting pictures of their luxury cars on the Internet, has been blinded with acid and had two of his fingers hacked off.
Li Jianxin, 47, is in hospital after being attacked earlier this month, it has emerged. His car was rammed from behind and he was taken by three men to a remote industrial park in the southern city of Huizhou, where they doused him with acid and hacked at him with knives.
A woman in a workers dormitory nearby emerged to find Li lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood and his six-year-old son wailing in his car.
Li posted dozens of reports of corruption on a popular local Internet forum.
His younger brother, Li Jianhuang, said several members of one prominent family in Huiyang, many of whom worked for the local government, had been particularly embarrassed by Li.
He said he was not hopeful that the police would find his brothers attackers. The pressure from the local government is enormous because the influence of that family is huge. My only wish is to see my brother recover, he said.
Li Jianxin is scheduled for a second operation to give him an artificial eye and a skin graft and remains in a stable condition in hospital in Huizhou.
Xi Jinping, Chinas president, has called for whistleblowers to help in the fight against the endemic corruption inside the Communist Party.
But his rhetoric has been accompanied by harsh treatment for those brave enough to take up his challenge.
On Wednesday, a Beijing-based lawyer named Xu Zhiyong was detained by police after signing an open letter calling for the release of eight people who had campaigned for government officials to publish their assets.
And no means of self -defense.
And Zero would love to do similar to anyone who embarrasses his regime by exposing his corrupt actions.
Obama and Holder are taking notes.
Seems rather harsh.
The Commie Masters do not like their lies exposed. So they hacked his fingers off, for the people of course.
I expect similar local news one day soon.
He’s fortunate. In this country, trouble makers have an “accident” and then are cremated.
The future of the USA if present trends continue.
Mobsters rule in China, just as they do in the West. “One World Government” now means government by powerful syndicates of political, banking, bureaucratic and international business elites. In their own way, they punish and/or seek to destroy those who expose and/or fight against their secret combinations which they operate for gain and for control.
Many believe that “us v. them” are between rich and poor, but a more accurate representation would be gov’t and governed.
Holder is taking notes.
Marxists are all about peace and love. Until they are in power and you cross them.
I guess the professional whistleblowers end up dead.
