What Do His Hand Gestures Mean?

 

Chen made this hand gesture 6 times during his confession which was aired by China's state media, CCTV, before his trial.

Chen Yongzhou, a journalist for the Guangdong-based New Express newspaper was arrested after he published a report about financial irregularities at a construction-equipment company called Zoomlion.

Chen's arrest sparked a huge outcry from Chinese people and also from the newspaper he was working for. The newspaper made a big effort to pressure the communist regime to release Chen, but a few days later, the chief of New Express was removed from his position.

The communist regime quickly arranged a TV "show" that showed Chen Yongzhou 'confessing' to accepting bribes, but most Chinese bloggers thought the 'confession' was the result of torture.

Chinese bloggers also questioned the following from the CCTV program:

1, Why did Chen make this hand gesture 6 times during his confession?

2, Why did Chen keep his eyes closed at all times during his confession?

3, There are 2 areas of bruising on his neck, are they the result of beating and torture ?

4, Why did CCTV broadcast Chen Yongzhou's confession before any trial?

5, Who had bribed him and why was that person not charged?

6, Why did they shave Chen's hair?

In December 2009, an Argentine judge issued arrest warrants for top Chinese officials for their roles in the persecution of practitioners of the Falun Gong spiritual practice.

Judge Octavio Aráoz de Lamadrid’s landmark decision set a historical legal precedent for Argentina through its reliance on principles of extraterritoriality to prosecute foreign defendants for crimes against humanity.

The judge issued a national and international arrest warrant against Jiang Zemin, former leader of the Chinese Communist Party, and Luo Gan, former head of the 610 Office (Chinese Gestapo), an extrajudicial agency set up to lead and coordinate the campaign against Falun Gong. The warrant is to be carried out by the Interpol...

Investor Marc Faber reports in an article on Bloomberg.com that China’s economy will slow and possibly “crash” within a year as declines in stock and commodity prices signal the nation’s property bubble is set to burst.

The Shanghai Composite Index has failed to regain its 2009 high while industrial commodities and shares of Australian resource exporters are acting “heavy,” Faber said. The opening of the World Expo in Shanghai last week is “not a particularly...

Truth appears to have been a collateral victim of the 6.9 level magnitude earthquake that struck Jyekundo on the Tibetan plateau on April 14 last week.

The vast majority of the thousands of dead were proud Tibetans and deserved to be mourned as such. Yet most of the world governments, including Canada's, unfortunately made no mention of the Tibetans in their condolence messages to China. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton omitted the word “Tibet” from her statement...

As much as the Western world is accustomed to readily swallowing the data, propaganda and shallow promises that the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) minions are touting everywhere,  more snippets of factual information coming from reliable, independent media sources makes one wonder about the accuracy of any information coming out of present-day China.
