Now, Chinese dissident Guangcheng's nephew flees fearing for life

Beijing, Tue, 01 May 2012 ANI

Beijing, May 1 (ANI): Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng's nephew Chen Kegui has also escaped house arrest in fear of his life.

Chen Kegui reportedly fled after lashing out with a knife at men who had broken into his home and detained his father, The Guardian reports.

Hours after the incident he told blogger Cao Yaxue that a group of men, armed with wooden clubs and led by a local official, had broken into their house at around midnight, after realising his uncle Guangcheng had escaped.

"In China, law is trampled over at will. I love my motherland, but this is what she gives me," he told Cao.

"If I am sentenced to death, I hope someone will help take care of my father, my mother, my family, my child ... I hope the case will be dealt with according to rights provided for by the law, not manipulated by the privileged people," Kegui said.

Shortly, two police officers arrested Kegui's mother. Chen Kegui's wife is too frightened to reveal her location.

The European Union has urged China to avoid harassing the activist's family and associates. But many family members are already in the hands of furious officials.

Chen Guangcheng's wife, Yuan Weijing, their six-year-old daughter and his mother are under the watch of up to 100 hired guards, armed with hi-tech surveillance and phone-jamming equipment, who have beaten, threatened or harassed supporters, journalists and even diplomats trying to visit the family.

Human rights activists have said that two more relatives of Chen Guangcheng have been detained by police officers. (ANI)
