“自首”声明 / A Confession

近两周以来,多名中国维权律师与工作者被警方在秘密地点羁押半年后,以涉嫌颠覆或煽动颠覆国家政权罪被正式批捕。看到这则消息,内心深感不安,特别是听闻其中更包括两位年仅24岁的律师助理与实习律师。仔细搜索阅读相关资料,心中惶恐更增。作为同龄人,虽与她们不曾相识,但我认可其行动理念,支持其参与过的法律公益维权项目,自忖也具备从事同样助理工作的能力,亦不排除未来参与类似工作的可能。

本人持有中国护照,具备中国国籍条件,或者说就是实实在在的中国国籍持有者,并不持有瑞典或其他国家国籍。明知即使人在海外,我首先还是一个中国人,一切言行也理应受中国政府管辖。但就算这样,我的思想仍然发生了松动,变得与社会主义核心价值观中的某些具体条目高度吻合,潜在地伤害了中国人民的感情。对以上事实可能出现的任何质疑和扭曲,都是站不住脚的。

因此,我虽在欧洲留学,但负罪感严重,寝食难安,内心是很痛苦的。身在境外,心理压力也不能得到丝毫缓解,事实上反而是加重了。犹豫挣扎数日,深感心不安,的确哪里都不是故乡。所以在此,我邀请中国警方跨境执法,将我带回国接受协助调查。同时我承诺,接下来在匈牙利的生活与学习期间,随身携带护照,避免造成任何非法出入境或偷越边境的情况。以防人回到了中国,护照还被锁在布达佩斯的宿舍抽屉里。

A “Confession” to Chinese government

Last week, after being detained in some secret places for six months, more than ten Chinese human rights lawyers have been formally arrested by Chinese police on charges of subverting state power (see Guardian report: http://goo.gl/1SxRrm). I feel deeply concerned at this horrible news, especially after I heard that two legal assistants only at the age of 24 were also arrested on the same charge.

As their Chinese contemporary, though I had no honour of knowing them, I recognised their beliefs, and appreciate what they have been devoted to. Besides, reckoning that I may also possess the ability to do the some legal assistant work, I do not rule out the possibility that I might participate in the similar human rights projects in the future.

I am aware that by admitting these facts, I may “cause harm to the Chinese government, and hurt the feelings of Chinese people” (watch a Swedish NGO worker confessing on Chinese Central Television after being arrested in China: http://goo.gl/fSR5Jk). Hereby I invite the Chinese police to come to Budapest, and bring me back to China for investigation, considering that they were able to cross the border and abduct a bookseller in Hong Kong (read here: http://goo.gl/mXLnrx). Meanwhile, I promise that during the next few months while I am staying in Hungary, I will carry my passport with me wherever I go. In case that the passport would still be left in my drawer after I have been brought back to China (as what happened to that Hong Kong bookseller).

(If you would like to support the arrested human rights lawyers and the Swedish activist, take a similar photo and post it on FB, or maybe on twitter, with #bringmetoChina. Don’t worry if you do not have a Chinese nationality, it will work out LOL. Most important of all, hope to hear your voice and have your support! I would be less scared for posting it if there are pictures all over the place :)
