Chinese woman complains about false imprisonment, so her local government locked her in a morgue for years
According to a Voice of China “Newsline” report, city residents of Heilongjiang Yichun City Dailing District have recently reported that a woman named Chen Qingxia was kept in an abandoned morgue by the relevant departments for petitioning [to higher government authorities for redress, lodging complaints] year after year, her personal freedom having been restricted for already 3 years. In 2007, Chen Qingxia’s son disappeared during the chaos when the local complaints office went to Beijing to stop them and to this day remains missing, while her husband is currently living in an mental hospital.
In front of a row of old flat houses in Yichun City Dailing District, a white van without a license plate is parked outside, the front of the car facing the words such as “I beg for mercy” taped to the building’s windows. A camera is installed to one side of the house’s door, the rear window is sealed with iron bars, and a pile of muck has buried the lower half of the window. This is Chen Qingxia’s current residence.
