This short article (Chinese only) describes Shanghai petitioner Wang Kouma’s determination to continue to fight his case despite being categorized as one of the five types of people accused by a Chinese expert of being used by the United States to interfere with China’s rise. The five types of people were listed in the July 31, 2012 People’s Daily article “What Are Real Challenges for China?” by Yuan Peng, head of the American Institute of the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations.
Wang has petitioned for many years since his family home was taken away. His mother died in a black jail and Wang himself was imprisoned for “abandoning” his mother. On July 20, 2012, Wang was forcibly taken back to Shanghai by police during a trip to Beidaihe, Henan Province. He was spared detention because of his high blood pressure, but has been put under round-the-clock surveillance by six security guards.
