Gao Zhisheng Family’s Statement on the Fourth Anniversary of His Kidnapping
By Geng He （Gao Zhisheng’s wife）
Translated by Yang Zili
It has been four years since Gao Zhisheng was kidnapped. In the past four years, I have not heard his voice. Nobody has shown that he is still alive. I have dreamed of him several times where he was no longer alive asking me to forget him. Yesterday, however, he came to my dream once more, telling me that he was still alive and could come to me and my child soon. He was a little thinner, but so real. Just when I was about to ask him when he would come, I woke up from the dream…
This is the reality of our family. Over the past 16 years, our ordinary family has been completely torn apart by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the darkest and most shameless regime in the world.
Until today, I have insisted that Gao Zhisheng is never an ambitious revolutionary as the CCP has propagated. He was only working as a lawyer, adhering to the conscience of people, exposing the CCP’s crimes against humanity, and letting the world see the ugly face of CCP.
The price he paid for his deed is beyond what any of normal people could have imagined. He has lost his freedom for 16 years; his wife and children were scattered, and he was tortured countless times by appalling tortures. I took my two underage children fleeing to a foreign country. Our daughter was humiliated and beaten by the CCP police in China. The psychological trauma she suffered has not been healed. The then five-year-old son has never seen his father again, so that he can only recall his father by looking at the photos. When a father was most needed in his life, he was destined to be absent by his father’s love. Gao Zhisheng’s sister, who was also one of the people who loved him most in the world, committed suicide by jumping into the river three years after her brother was kidnapped…….
Today is the fourth anniversary of Gao Zhisheng’s last kidnapping by CCP. For the whole of 1460 days, my blood and tears have already shed up. I even believed that Gao Zhisheng colud have died in CCP’s evil hands. However, I know that I cannot give up. Gao and I have known each other for 36 years and married for 31 years. I still determine that no matter to the ends and corners of the world, and even until a day when seas are dry and rocks are rotten, I must find him, to meet him alive or see his corpse even if he died.
It has been long time since I gave up the idea that CCP might correct its mistakes to vindicate Gao Zhisheng. What I need is that he could answer a phone call to tell me personally that he is still alive. I’m just an ordinary housewife; I only have this humble request now.
If this humble request cannot be met, I will use the rest of my life and all my social resources in the United States for more than ten years, to seek international sanctions against Hu Minglang, the former Shaanxi Public Security Director, Xu Datong, the current Director, and Zhuang Changxing, Secretary of the Shaanxi Political and Legal Committee of CCP. Sanctions will include freezing property, expelling immediate family members and so on. The current and former Ministers of Public Security have not been able to stop the abuses of the Shaanxi Public Security Department, so that they will become my next targets. I will reserve my right to seek international sanctions against these two of the public security ministers.
In the past 16 years, CCP has underestimated Gao Zhisheng’s determination and perseverance and failed to conquer him. Now, I will face you up to my determination. There has been a story of Meng Jiangnv crying down the Great Wall of China in ancient time. I may not be able to cry down the Great Wall, but I am confident that the senior political and legal officials of CCP who have exploited the people for many years can buy nothing by their dirty money.
Finally, may God take care of me, give me the courage to face the demons of the CCP! I also implore all good people with a conscience to help me and provide me with more information so that I can find my miserable-fate husband Gao Zhisheng as soon as possible!
