恳请联合国难民署尽快给予李志友先生政治庇护

尊敬的联合国难民署驻泰国高级专员公署:

我名曾节明,是来自中国的政治异议人士,现居美国。我曾经是一位联合国难民:2008年十月至2011年三月,我因逃避政治迫害,流亡泰国近两年半,水深火热、凄风苦雨;值此一生中最困难的时期,联合国难民署驻泰国高级专员公署及时给了我政治庇护、给予我全家难民救济金、并将我们安置往美国,终令我们转危为安;毫不夸张地说:如果没有联合国的庇护,我全家今天很可能流落曼谷街头了。

我永远地衷心感谢联合国难民署驻泰国高级专员公署!
联合国难民署驻泰国高级专员公署对我全家的及时救助,集中地彰显了伟大的人道主义精神,感激之余,我真诚地希望,难民署能够在李志友先生的案子上同样彰显这种精神。

李志友先生目前仍然是贵署的难民申请者,难民申请号为:XXXX,他向贵署递交庇护申请已逾一年五个月,但是至今仍未获得结果。

李志友先生是我的桂林老乡,我愿以我的一点亲身经历,向贵署证明:李志友先生是真正从事中国民主运动的政治反对人士、长期受到迫害、并且面临极大的被捕判刑危险。

2001年九月,我因为帮助一位法轮功成员上网事发(被彼法轮功信徒在被捕时供出),电脑和大量异议文章手稿被政治警察从家中抄走,我本人被关入桂林市第二看守所,一度被控以“煽动颠覆国家政权”。政治警察在提审我期间,有一次莫名其妙地问:
“李 zhi you 你认得没有?”
“不认得。”
“妈的,还装傻,你和李志友做过那些事情,老实讲!”
问得我丈二和尚摸不着头脑,因为这个李某某我以前听都没听过,哪有这样蛮不讲理的,当时我还不知道这种诓式审问,是公安常用手法,犟脾气上来了,就说:
“这个人我确实不认识,你们到底是什么意思?”
“某某,你还不老实!”审问者拍着桌子跳起来,砰地甩门出去,一副就要用刑的凶相。但是他们终究没有打人——当年,桂林的政治警察比起全国许多地方,都相对文明。

后来我被释放的时候,另有一个警察告诉我:我算幸运的了,那个李zhi you是桂林搞民主党的,被判了好几年。

直到2004年,我在网上读到一些资料后,这才明白公安所说的“李 zhi you”,是指中国民主党桂林负责人李志友先生。后来,我又从桂林全州的一位异议朋友王德佳(笔名:荆楚)先生那里了解到:李志友先生刑满释放后,被中共桂林当局断了谋生的路子,不得已到广西的另一个城市——柳州去谋生,并娶了一位柳州妻子。。

尽管移居柳州,但李志友先生并未能摆脱中共当局的迫害。从2004年至2008年十月我出走泰国之前,我在桂林至少三次听到李志友先生在“敏感日”被政治警察从家中带走的事情,记得有一次带走后关了很多天。中共当局对李志友先生的迫害显然是长期的、制度化的,而且在胡锦涛上台后,越来越重。

如果李志友先生不选择逃离中国的化,将面临极大的被捕危险,若不幸再次被捕,很可能会被判处十年以上重刑,就象刘晓波、刘贤斌那样。

因为中国主席胡锦涛,是一个死硬的斯大林极权主义的信奉者,这个人狂热支持邓小平制造“六四”大屠杀,也正是他,下令杀害了数以千计的西藏和平示威民众。自2002年胡锦涛上台后,公开提出向朝鲜、古巴学习,并悄悄将中国扭向朝鲜、古巴式的极权控制轨道;在胡锦涛的统治下,中国出现了全面的大倒退,人权状况恶化到三十年来从未有过的境地:许多在江泽民统治时期从未受过迫害的异议人士,都被胡锦涛的政策投入监狱;胡锦涛主导的国家机器,愈来愈以黑社会流氓手法抢劫、绑架、关押、殴打、折磨、侮辱政治异议人士和维权人士,不要任何法律程序,这种迫害,现在更发展到没有底线的下三烂程度。

在这种形势下,李志友先生不得不携妻拖女,于2009年十一月冒险从云南越境,偷渡到泰国。中国的形势和李志友先生的事迹都证明:李志友先生之所以逃到泰国,完全是逃避政治迫害的需要,而没有其他目的。李志友先生能逃离中国,显然是幸运的:在胡锦涛疯狂的倒退暴政下,原先没受迫害的大批异议人士、宗教人士和维权人士,现在都被整得很难过,在越来越多的“敏感日”中失去自由,甚至被强迫“失踪”。

流亡泰国后,李志友先生继续积极投身异议活动:在曼谷,他先后参加或组织了向中国游客发放《零八宪章》、声援刘晓波、刘贤斌示威、声讨胡锦涛、声援国内“茉莉花”行动、纪念辛亥革命百年等活动,以其出色的活动能力和实干精神,至今,李志友先生已经成为旅泰中国民主力量的领导组织核心。

尽管异议人士身份和受迫害危险都货真价实,遗憾的是,李志友先生迟迟得不到联合国难民署的庇护:李志友于2009年十一月递交庇护申请,2010年四月六日获得难民署官员面谈,但是之后,申庇结果直到今天都杳无音讯。这或许与李志友先生不谙英语、不熟程序、不懂自我推销有关。

迟迟得不到庇护的后果,于李志友来说是严重的。由于泰国法律从来不承认难民身份,近半年来,阿批实政府又一再推行排斥难民的政策,导致旅泰难民人权状况急剧恶化,大批联合国难民被抓坐牢,好些难民申请者甚至被遣返或驱逐出境。一旦李志友先生被抓捕遣返回国,后果不堪设想;若李志友一家人被驱逐到东南亚其他国家,则亦面临很大的不测危险,因为那些地方多匪盗横行、瘴疫流行、难以生存,而李志友先生的女儿只有六岁。

因此,我恳切呼吁联合国难民署驻泰国高级专员公署,尽早批予李志友一家难民身份,并尽快安置其前往第三国为上!


致以最诚挚的感激和敬意!

APPEAL UNHCR GIVE LI ZHI YOU ASYLUM SOON

Respectable UNHCR Thailand:

My name is ZENG JIE MING. I was once a UN refugee who lived in Bangkok, Thailand.
I came to Bangkok with my wife and my 7-year son to avoid a coming political persecution in October 2008, from 2008 to 2011, we lived in Thailand nearly two and half years, bearing heavy pressure, leading a hard life. On this most difficult point in my life, UNHCR Thailand reached us her rescuing hands by giving us asylum timely, then refered our case to US Ferderal Government soon, and help us get resettlement of USA eventually. Unexaggeratedly I can be sure, I and my family can never gain our freedom, and live in USA legally, safely, with dignity, without UNHCR's humane help.

So, I thank UNHCR Thailand deep from my heart forever!

UNHCR typically honored UN's great princeples again by rescuing me and my family in this way. With huge gratitude, I sincerely hope that UNHCR could kindly repeat her great humannity on MR. LI ZHI YOU's case.

MR. LI ZHI YOU is an asylum seeker coming from China, with the seeking ID: NI . He still has not got his seeking result yet more than one year and five months after he handed in his appication to UNHCR Thailand in 2009.

MR. LI is my countryman. Here, by the experience of myself, I would like to testify that LI ZHI YOU is a real democratic activist from China who was persecuted by China Government for a long turn and faced a high risk of being arrested before he came to Thailand.

In September of 2001, I was arrested for helping a FLG member going on internet. Guilin political police searched my home and seized my computer, printer, handwritings , even my diary books. I was put in Guilin Second detention center and charged with "inciting subversion". During this period, one time, two policemen came to prison to questioned me, and what he questioned included these words:
"Did you know a man named LI ZHI YOU?" he asked.
"Never." I said.
"Fuck, don't pretend to be silly, what you did with LI ZHI YOU? tell us!"
"I was angry caused by his unreasonable question, because I did not know this person actually, I even never heard of his name, so I said:
"I really don't know him. What on earth do you want me to answer?"
" you are lying!" he shouted.

he heavily hit the desk with his palm, jumped, and went out with slamming the door. I sat and waited for a coming persecution from them, but it did not happen. Later I realized the way he asked was a kind of trick China police often used to the suspected.

Later, when I was released as "mental disorder", another policeman told me that I was extremelyy lucky compared with LI ZHI YOU, who was a member in Guilin of China Democratic Party and was sentenced to stay in prison for several years.

It was not until 2004 that I read some materials about MR. LI ZHI YOU in internet. Later, Wang De Jia (pen name JIN CHU), one dissident friend of mine, told me that MR. LI was blocked to make a living in Guilin by Government and had to move to LiuZhou, another city in GuangXi Province, there he married a LiuZhou woman.

From 2004 to 2008, I heard that LI ZHI YOU was taken away by police from his home in LiuZhou at least three times at so called "sensitive days" set by China Communist Party. As I rember, one time, MR. LI disppeared many days after he was taken away. Everything indicated that the persecution MR. LI bore was a long term one and apparently became heavier and heavier when HU JIN TAO, a stubborn Stalinist and Maoist, came in power.

Everything appeared that LI ZHI YOU would be arrested and sentenced to stay in jail more than ten years if he had not chosen to escape from CHINA, just like what happened to MR. Liu Xiao Bo and MR. Liu Xian Bin.

Here I would like to testify with the experience of myself that it was China President HU JIN TAO who drove China going backwards rapidly. After HU came in power, he called on the party and the government to learn North Korea State, and actually began to copy the controling methods of that evil regime.

Under the ruling of HU JIN TAO and his followers, CHINA's enviroment of politics and human rights fell to the lowest level within the recent 30 years. In recent 9 years, Requied by HU JIN TAO, many dissidents who had never been arrested during JIANG ZE MING's ruling period, were put in prison, more and more private apartments, houses and building were tore down by force.
Controled by HU JIN TAO, the sate machine has been persecuting dissidents by any mean, including: beating, kidnapping, torchuring, enprison, following, limiting at home, regardless any judicial procedure.

Under this worsening situation, LI ZHI YOU had to flee to Thailand with his wife and his four years daughter in November 2009 by crossing the border between China and Burma ilegally, adventuring great risks, to aviod a coming arrest. China's new situation and the severer oppression suffered by many dissident friends of LI ZHI YOU proved that the only motive of MR. li's travel to Thailand was to avoid political persecution from China Government.

When I was strapped in Thailand, MR. LI told me that such a suffering life he had not expected as an exiled dissient had to lead in Thailand, he would never come to Thailand if he could aviod an arrest in China.

It was lucky that LI ZHI YOU successfully escaped from China, in three years, because HU JIN TAO and his officails has greatly strengthened border control and the supervision to dissidents in China block them leaving China. And leaving China has been becoming more and more difficult for them.

MR. LI devoted himself to dissident activities opposing China Government soon after he came to Thailand. As one of Chinese democratic activists in Thailand one month ago, I witnessed that LI ZHI YOU took part in series of demonstrations in Bangkok, including:
issuing 2008 Chapter Of China and other dissidend leaflets, congratulating 2010 Nobel Peace Prize awarding, supporting LIU XIAO BO, supporting LIU XIAN BIN, remembering the 100 anniverary of XIN HAI Revolution which turned over the tyranny of Qing Dynasty, aiding Jasmine Activities happening in China recent period, etc. MR. LI did as a leader and a organizer in these activities. Today, MR. LI actually has become the core member of dissident groups in Thailand.

However, LI ZHI YOU still has not been recognized as an UN refugee although he was a real dissident and faced arrest in China. He got an interview from an UN officer on April 6, 2010, after he handed in his application in November 2009, but after that, more than a whole year passed, no outcome was available for him.

This postponement has caused a very negative situation for LI ZHI YOU and his family.

Firstly, Thailand's law never recognizes a refugee status and UN refugees can not get any aid when they are violated by local people or someone else.

What worse is, Arpisi's Government has been taking actions against UN refugees and its asylum seekers since last year, lots of them were arrested and put in IDC, some of them even were repatriated.

From February 2010 to December that year, I lived in the same building with li zhi you, During that period, I and my wife witnessed the building MR. LI livd was searched three times by police. On the early morning of December 8 2010, IDC police raided the area MR. LI lived and arrested more than 30 refugees and seekers. LI ZHI YOU fortunately avoided it because he and his wife had left their home for UNHCR to renew protecting documents 10 minutes before the police came.

After that incident, MR. LI had to moved his home, but the owner ate his deposit money encouraged by IDC police's action.

If MR. LI and his family were repartriated or expelled to neighbor country, that would be really a tragedy, for MR. LI's daughter is only 5 years old now.

So, with most earnestness, I appeal UNHCR Thailand to approve MR. LI ZHI YOU's case and refer it to a third countyr as earlier as you could.

Best Regards!

Yours Sincere ZENG JIE MING
