Women all over the world
Bian Xiaohui was a fresh graduate. Her father was sentenced to 12 years in prison for impeding law enforcement with evil organisations in 2012. Instead of detesting or alienating herself from her father, Bian Xiaohui and her mother visited her father month to month. However, the legal rights to visit her imprisoned father has been obstructed and rejected by the prison authorities and her mother therefore fell sick. In order to strive to meet with her father, she sent her mother back for recuperation and she herself continued to request for visiting her father. She even tried to accuse the prison authorities but the case was not accepted. Helplessly, she then held a banner with “I WANT TO SEE MY FATHER”in front of the prison and handed out cards of her story to passersby on March 3, 2014.

Unfortunately, she was arrested before long. BianXiaohui, therefore, was sentenced to three years and six months in prison by district court in Shijiazhuang, Hebei on April 15, 2015 for committing the same crime as her father.

Visiting the imprisoned relatives is the legal rights to all people not only in China but also around the world. It is affection of relatives, which will help the ones who are punished to return to the society. However, the authorities rejected their requests for seeing their relatives, which shall be exposed, charged with and rectified instead of being shielded or encouraged. And the ones who disclosed or sued shall not be retaliated.

However, the affectionate girl has been convicted by the court in China.The conviction of the court not only showed its support for the illegality of the prison authorities but also showed contempt for the affection between family members. It is impossible for a daughter to accept such a verdict.

Therefore, we urge Shijiazhuang intermediate court to immediately acquit Bian Xiaohui so as to protect her rights for exposing and accusing of the prison authorities for their illegal acts.

We call for the Chinese government to give commendation to Bian Xiaohuiso as to show respect and encouragement to human affection!
