案件簡介:
沈良慶1984年7月畢業於安徽大學中文系;1984年7月至1992年4月在安徽省檢察院擔任檢察官。1984年,他創辦民間刊物《大學生與社會》,宣揚自由人權與普世價值。因參與六四學運,1992年被合肥法院以「煽動顛覆國家政權罪」判刑,失去公職及入獄一年半。

出獄後仍不斷針砭時弊,為弱勢人士發聲(如政治犯之女張安妮失學),及以前檢察人員的身份評論中共黨內事務,而一直受到當局監控、拘押、軟禁,充公手機電腦等打壓。

2019年4月23日,沈良慶在推特上張貼他與日本記者的合照,並說記者是專程到合肥訪談六四的話題,他介紹了自己經歷的本地學潮情況。5月15日,他被公安從家中帶走,並以涉「尋釁滋事罪」被刑事拘留。2019年6月20日他被正式拘捕,10月24日被起訴,案件於2021年2月2日終於開庭審訊,未有當庭判罪。沈良慶在自辯時控訴在被關押期間受到不人道對待。

據起訴書稱,自2017年至2019年5月被抓捕這段期間,沈良慶利用信息網絡,運用相關軟件,通過推特、臉書等境外社交平台發布貼文,獲關注粉絲2萬餘人。

起訴書還稱,沈良慶所發貼文中,有一部分是通過「歪曲」歷史事件性質、社會敏感熱點等內容,編造「虛假信息」,攻擊、破壞正常社會秩序。

他的代表律師劉浩在沈良慶家屬的陪同下,2019年5月底會見了沈良慶,了解到沈良慶遭拘留初期,被戴上黑頭套、24小時禁止吃喝、禁止去廁所,並被疲勞審訊等酷刑,而審訊內容主要涉及六四和他接受外媒採訪等。

2019年中,國保亦到看守所找沈良慶談話,要求他解除與家屬聘請的律師協議,由官方指定的律師辯護。國保的理由是沈家家庭貧困,貧困戶屬於符合申請法律援助的條件。沈良慶表示堅決不辭退家屬委託的律師。其次堅決不用官方指定的官派律師。如果非用不可,他就拒絕用律師,直接自行辯護。

這次被長期扣留及久未開庭,除了因為他接受外媒訪問談及六四及經常評論中共黨務,另一位熟悉沈良慶的朋友猜測,2014年香港佔中時期,沈良慶曾剃光頭舉牌拍照聲援港人,結果被刑事傳喚和抄家。2019年香港發生大規模反修例示威,考慮到他的敢言作風,當局覺得更有必要囚禁著他。

Detention Centre of Hefei City

Description:

Shen Liangqing graduated from the Chinese Department of Anhui University in July 1984. Between July 1984 and April 1992, he worked as a prosecutor in the Anhui Provincial Procuratorate. In 1984, he founded an independent journal “College Students and Society" to promote freedom, human rights and other universal values. Due to his involvement in the June 4th student movement, he was sentenced by the court in Hefei City in 1992 for “inciting subversion of state power" for 18 months of imprisonment, and lost his job as a prosecutor.

After he was released from prison, he has been a vocal critic on social affairs, voicing for vulnerable people (such as Zhang Anni, daughter of a political prisoner, who was deprived from her right to education ), commenting on the internal affairs of the Communist Party by using his identity of former prosecutor. Therefore, he has been put under surveillance, detention, house arrest, and his mobile phones and computers have been repeatedly confiscated.

On 23 April, 2019, Shen Liangqing posted a photo of him with a Japanese reporter on Twitter, saying that the reporter had made an extra trip to Hefei to cover the 30th anniversary of June 4th Massacre, and he told the journalist about the student movement he had experienced. On 15 May, he was taken away by the police and was then criminally detained, on suspicion of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble." He was formally arrested on 20 June 2019 and indicted on 24 October the same year. Shen was finally tried on 2 February 2021 but no verdict was delivered. In his own defense, Shen said he was ill-treated during detention.

According to the indictment, Shen Liangqing used network and related softwares to post on Twitter, Facebook and other overseas social platforms, attracted more than 20,000 followers between 2017 and May 2019. It states that some of Shen Liangqing’s posts were to fabricate “false information" by “distorting" the nature of historical events, sensitive social topics and etc., in order to disrupt social order.

In late May 2019, Lawyer Liu Hao, accompanied by Shen Liangqing’s family, met with Shen Liangqing. He learned that in the beginning of the detention, Shen Liangqing suffered from torture, including being hooded, prohibited from eating and drinking for 24 hours, prohibited from going to the toilet, and forced to go through continuous interrogation. The interrogation was mainly about June Fourth and his interviews with foreign journalists.

In mid-2019, the state security officers tried to persuade Shen to dismiss his own lawyer and to be represented by the lawyer appointed by the authorities. The sate security officers claimed that Shen’s family is poor and the poor households are eligible for legal aid. Shen Liangqing refused to dismiss the lawyer entrusted by his family and declined any officially appointed lawyers. Shen said he would be prepared to defend himself without any lawyers, if the authorities would force him to accept lawyers they appoint.

Despite his interviews with foreign media about June Fourth and frequent criticisms against the Communist Party, his long detention without trials could be interpreted as a way to stop him from voicing for the Hong Kong protesters. Back in 2014, Shen shared a picture of himself, who shaved his head and held up a placard to support Hong Kong protesters during the Umbrella Movement. He was then summoned by the authorities and his home was ransacked. In 2019, the Hong Kong people launched large-scale protests to fight against the amendments of the extradition bill. Considering his courageous style, the authorities might feel that it was better to detain him, in order to silence him.
