Exceptionally I want to thank great lawyer Thomas G Guo with my heart
By Huang Jingqiu
"I did not know my lawyer Guo Guoting is so well-known before, I just wonder, he not only looks quite young, his mind and spirit also vigorous, full of passions and poem melody, so while I was in prison in Nangjing, Jiangsu province, I sent him a letter asking for setting brotherhood with him, he accept my demand right away without any famous figure's pride. Later when I learn his persecuted, my heart so painful that I thought it is because for defending me he received the persecution, which deprived his law license, closed his law firm, caused his wife-left and daughter-separated, led his arrested and lost his career, and finally he was forced to exile oversea、、. Later I heard my room-prisoners who come from Shanghai that Shanghai Tian-Yee law group is one of the top law firm, and Guo is one of the top lawyer in Shanghai, only after I was released from the prison I learn that Lawyer Guo had handled so many well-known important cases、、、、、、these high risky political sensitive cases,will scare any common lawyers away, but Mr. Guo not only did not run away, but courageously take these cases and strongly defence his clients! He give up his top maritime lawyer's handsome income, ignorant to the huge loss of his law firm, persistence heavy pressure from all-side, bravely deal with the most risks and the lowest profits human rights law cases, why? !
We do not know tomorrow what will happen, who can give up completely today's happy life for those unknowable future? Especially, Guo living in Shanghai, where citizen are most calculated and practice for individual private benefits, how can Lawyer Guo not consider his own risk career and family interest? However, he still act as if he know nothing what he have to face the risks, loss, suffer, and damage. He stand up firmly and bravely to defend rights and justice, appeal public concern and support,challenge the ridicule and evil legal and political system! For those being treated by the CCP dictatorship regime as the enemy's prisoners. It is imaginable that, no matter whether in court, or in prison, or in home, what he have to facing certainly is not smiling welcomed or flowers, sure enough many friends and and colleague will avoid him, as if run away from plague. How powerful his inner mind, how alone he is! Cadre in my prison said that " this guy is much radical than you!" The special case team handle my case mentioned that "this lawyer post many nonsense online, that only make worse of your case"; High court judge in Jiangsu even sent letters to Shanghai Judicial Bureau charging Mr.Guo "in the court openly against party!"、、、、、、but I know there is a burning fire in his breast, the fire for justice that do not willing to quench, the fire made him keep youthful mind, led him unselfish and do not fear evil, caused him refuse compromise with the CCP for his principle, forward him to say others dare not say, to outrage that others dare not show! Therefore, I understand Mr. Guo, I comprehend his unyielding and forbearance! Thus, when whole society facing the CCP bloody criminal ruling, only keeping deathly silence,like "ten thousand horse lost their voice at same time", Guo dare courageously and strongly defend for FLG practitioners whose soul are killing by the CCP, but ignorant even by democratic society. He touch the most dangerous cases that even superior than my own case! (overthrow state power which face ten years to death sentence). I do not know whether Mr. Guo in that far away and ice-covered death-cold Canada, will feel abandoned, but I see he certainly without any guilty sense in his heart! His heroic name and great achievements, make Chinese lawyers has shining light! led Chinese Human rights lawyers earn the world respected with surprise!
Note: Huang Jingqiu or " Qing Shuijun" who was charged by the CCP as "subvert state power: and illegally sentenced for 12 years in prison, In October 2004 in Jiangshu Province high court, for his organize an alleged political party online in the world.
PS: My tears could not able to stop flowing down like river while I am translating this short massage which revealed the genuine friendship and appreciation, although I have defend a number of political and religious clients,with all my heart and ability, but few of them even said a single word of thank,few of them even complain me did not do enough, such as a Shanghai lady, I defend her for nothing but pay myself to cover the costs. While she beg me bring the lawsuit against my Boss! Shanghai Judicial Bureau and its head boss Mr. Miao Xiaobao. Although I am not so stupid fool that can not understand what will be the result、、、、、、however, after I decide to act on behalf her to bring the lawsuit against my Boss Mr. Miao Xiaobo, for I truly sympathize with her great suffering by my Boss, with all my capacity and heart, go through all legal procedure from district court and middle court in Shanghai,which took me 12 days to dealing with the case : to study the case, gather evidence, research and analyzed the laws and regulations, visited her in jail three times, hearing in court five times, because I did not successful to meet her once that she sent me a letter asked for, the only thanks she give me is that She complain "you are not the expert in the law of forced labour" ! But she alleged that she is! As to my other important human rights clients, almost none of them either show their appreciation or sent me a single letter after they were released from jail, prison, and labour camp, Neither I heard they show their appreciation for my humble and unsuccessful defense, which under the evilest criminal rogue regime, even if I was a god, I am afraid hardly have any chance to win the case、、、、、、is it the human nature? or Chinese culture lacking the sense of thanksgiving? In fact, I myself also have ignorant to thanks all friends who have been helping and supporting me, Please allow me pray for all of you and yours with the God blessing forever!
