呂耿松曾於2000年在香港出版《中共貪官污吏》一書,以及其他關於反貪、公民自由和宗教方面的文章。呂耿松原任教於浙江高等公安專科學校,但因支持民主運動和長期發表異見文章而受打壓,1993年被開除公職。

Description:
On 7 July 2014, Lü Gengsong was taken away by over 20 state security police officers stationing outside his home in Hangzhou. His home was raided. His mobile phones and computers were confiscated. On 13 August 2014, Lü was formally arrested for “subverting state power”. In February 2015, his case was transferred to the court for indictment but trial date was repeatedly delayed. On 29 September 2015, Hangzhou City Intermediate People’s Court opened the trial. The allegations included Lü’s articles, the Huangshan meeting, his attendance at pro-democracy activist Wang Rongqing’s funeral and his participating in postcard campaigns. Lü Gengsong refused to answer any questions at the trial. When he read out his self-defense statement, he was interrupted by the judge half way through. On 17 June 2016, nine months after the trial, Lü Gengsong was convicted of “subverting state power” and sentenced to 11 years imprisonment and deprivation of political rights for five years. His jail term is expected to end on 11 May 2025.

When Lü’s family visited him at Changhu Prison for the first time on 16 December 2016, they found that his health condition had worsen. There was problem with his teeth. He requested to receive dental treatment but was rejected. He lost five teeth. The food in the prison was very bad which lacked nutrition. Lü suffers from high-blood pressure and diabetes. He was not given medical treatment. He is under 24-hour surveillance every day. Lü’s daughter Lü Piaoqi was harassed after she told foreign media about Lü’s health condition. When his family visited him in September 2017, they found that his health further deteriorated. His gall bladder was dysfunctional. He lost 6 teeth which made it difficult for him to eat. On 10 April 2021, when Lü’s family visited him, they found that his condition was even worse. Lü needed to wear cotton coat, with three heavy woven clothes inside, and two warm pants and hat. But he still complained that he felt cold. He had applied for release on medical parole but was repeatedly rejected. It is worrying if he can endure the remaining jail terms.

Lü Gengsong was first detained in 2007. On 24 August 2007, Lü was detained and his home was raided. Until 2008, Hangzhou City Intermediate People’s Court convicted him of “inciting subversion of state power” and “illegally possessing state secrets” and sentenced him to four years imprisonment and deprivation of political rights for one year. According to reports, the evidence of the verdict was based on 470 Chinese characters of 19 articles he wrote for overseas websites. When he was released from Xijiao Prison in Hangzhou on 23 August 2011, nearly 100 people went to greet him. The prison authorities were overwhelmed. Almost all the state security police officers were called to block the crowd.

In 2000, Lü had published a book called “The Corrupt Officials of the Chinese Communist Party” in Hong Kong and some other articles on anti-corruption, civil rights and freedom and religion. Lü was a former teacher of Zhejiang Senior Public Security School. But he was dismissed in 1993 after he showed his support to the pro-democracy movement and consistently wrote articles with dissenting views.
