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?

The Chinese Communist Party's (CCP’s) political structure fosters political rivalry


Some Western observers feel that Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign is somehow confusing. It seems to them that, in addition to containing the widespread corruption in China, Xi also uses this campaign to purge officials who rival him politically.

That is likely to be the case. The structure of officialdom in China is quite different from that in the U.S. Xi is doing what he...

This past summer, party-state President Xi Jinping launched an all-out attack on China’s fragile human rights legal community. Since taking the Communist Party leadership in 2013, Xi has increasingly cracked down on what he views as western-style freedoms in China. The hopes of the Chinese people and their friends around the world for gradual reform, leading to the rule of law, a sustainable natural environment, and democracy-no doubt one with very Chinese characteristics-have been set...
