Description:
On 10 July 2015, Hu Shigen went missing while he was preparing to attend a church gathering. On the previous day, Beijing human rights lawyer Wang Yu was taken away, which started the “709 crackdown” with over 300 individuals being detained or arrested. Among those who were detained, some were also given heavy sentence like Hu Shigen. On 7 August 2015, Hu was placed under “residential surveillance in a designated location” on suspicion of “subverting state power”. His lawyer’s requests for visits were rejected. Until 8 January 2016, Hu was formally arrested for “subverting state power” and was indicted for the same charge on 15 July 2016. On 3 August 2016, Hu was convicted of “subverting state power” by Tianjin Municipal No. 2 Intermediate People’s Court in a secret trial. He was sentenced to 7.5 years’ imprisonment and 5 years of deprivation of political rights. He accepted the sentence and did not appeal. According to reports, before the trial, the authorities had promised to Hu that they would allow him to be “released on medical parole” if he would plead guilty. As he suffers from a number of illnesses, he family had helped him to apply for “release on medical parole” for many times but all the applications were rejected.

Hu Shigen was a former lecturer of Beijing Language Institute (currently renamed as Beijing Language and Culture University), an elder of Christian house churches in Beijing, including “Divine Love Christian Fellowship”, “Zhongyuan Church” and “Yehebo Church”. He is also a famous dissident. In January 1991, he secretly established the China Liberal Democratic Party with Wang Guoqi. In April and May 1992, he planned with Liu Jingsheng and others to go to Beijing, Shanghai and Wuhan to spread leaflets to protest against the Chinese government’s June 4 Massacre and commemorate the June 4 victims. He was criminally detained in Beijing on 27 May 1992. Then, on 27 September 1992, he was formally arrested on suspicion of “organizing and leading an anti-revolutionary syndicate” and “promoting incitement against revolution”. Until 16 December 1994, he was sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment and 5 years of deprivation of political rights by Beijing Municipal Intermediate People’s Court. He appealed against his conviction but it was overturned. When he was serving his sentence at Beijing Municipal No. 2 Prison, he was under strict control. He suffered severely physically and mentally and nearly died in custody. He got two sentence reductions and was released from prison on 26 August 2008, four years earlier than the original jail term.

After his release, Hu continued to promote democracy and freedom and was concerned about human rights incidents. He also became a preacher of Christian house churches. He continued to be under tight surveillance and other forms of persecution, including summons and house arrest. When he supported the “Jasmine Revolution in China” in 2011, he was secretly detained, hooded and beaten up. In 2014, he supported some detained house church members. Then, in May 2014, he took part in a seminar to commemorate June 4. He was summoned and criminally detained on suspicion of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” by Beijing police for one month.
