Media Press Release for WU Yuren’s Nov 17th, 2010 TRIAL

Dear Media Personnel,

Thank you for your interest in Wu’s case since the beginning. I am hoping that each and every one of the international papers / radio will be in attendance at his trial, as we have all waited so long for a final court date! Even if you personally can not make it, please try to arrange for another member of your organization to be in attendance. Much appreciated!

I attach for your convenience my application for viewing the trial, which I still have not heard back from.

New developments and why this is crucial for coverage:
Lawyer LI has been in to the courthouse to view the video of Wu supposedly beating and threatening the cop yesterday, but of the 3 files, two would not open at all, and the other file was just showing Dawu at the front gate of 798, no fighting or threatening. Furthermore, against usual policy, they refused to let LI make a copy of any of the files to take out of the court house, after telling Li in the beginning that he could do so. Li seems to think that they in fact don’t have concrete evidence to match the charge of “interfering in public service”. Moreover, Dawu has not accepted the charges laid against him, steadfast that he did not touch a cop, let a lone damage a cop’s finger. It feels more and more like a revenge beating/detainment, and making WU an example. We shall see next Wednesday at 9:30am.

The court session of Artist Wu Yuren case shall open on 9:30am November 17th, 2010 at Wenyuhe Court. If you are interested in joining the support crowd, and can get time off of work, your support would be much appreciated, but please not obligation. Please see below for more information. I will try to be there with Hannah by 9:00 am outside the courthouse. Please feel free to pass on to those who might be interested, too.
