    Subject: Some people harbour those who have violated the International
    Declaration of Hum

    Dear Sir/Madam,


    I want to tell you that the Construction Committee of Shenyang City China violated the rules in the International Declaration of Human Rights. They discriminated against an unemployed aged person, unemployed women, disabled people and children, denying them living space, treating them inhumanly, causing an aged person to die mercilessly and taking away by force the property of the dead and having not returned it since 1996.


    Here are the facts:


    They have blocked the doors and windows facing the street since 1996:
    The Construction Committee of Shenyang City wanted to widen and heighten Yingbin Road. A hostel of 270 m2 run by the victim was within the range of being pulled down. In fact, the restaurant part had been pulled down and the 7 doors and 7 windows in the remaining 180 m2 part were blocked by the widened and heightened road. There was only an open of 80 centimeters height left for each door, making it impossible for the victim to run his business or protect the property inside. The building still remains there as evidence. This shows that the Construction Committee of Shenyang City China violates Clauses 1 and 12 of the World Declaration of Human Rights.
    Here is the fact that they made the victim¡¯s hostel and private house as a place to discharge sewage:
    The Construction Committee of Shenyang City completed building Yingbin Road in 1996. Because of the poor engineering quality, the waste water in the sewer flows out to the road surface and blocks the victim¡¯s house during the rainy season. The hostel and household appliances were often soaked by sudden dirty water, which is 1.2 meters deep with feces and dozens of chemicals. Such situation has lasted for 8 years and even dogs and pigs cannot live under such circumstance. This indicates that the Construction Committee of Shenyang City violates Clause 12 of the World Declaration of Human Rights, preventing us from enjoying our property or coming home even though we have our own house and denying us living space.
    Here is the fact the Construction Committee of Shenyang City discriminated inhumanly against unemployed aged people, unemployed women, disabled people and children and denying them living space:
    The victims rented a private house to run a hostel. Unemployed aged people, unemployed women and disabled individuals made a living by renting out the house (4000 Yuan a month for 700 m2). We have complete formalities and certificates for the house. But as the doors and windows have been blocked by the road since 1996 and it has been made as a place to discharge waste water, the house cannot be rented out, which denies the whole family living space, and in turn we cannot pay for the children¡¯s education. This violates Clauses 12 and 25 of the World Declaration of Human Rights.
    They denied unemployed aged people living space mercilessly, which shortened their life inhumanly!
    The Construction Committee of Shenyang City denies the fact that the doors and windows of the house are blocked by the road and the house is made into a place for drainage, which makes it impossible for the house to be rent out. The mother of the victim was unemployed and made a living by renting out the house. But now she had no money to see the doctor after falling seriously ill when she came back from a visit to authorities concerned on the case.
    1 The old woman had withdrawn all her deposit to do something about the waste water discharged into the house, thus she had no living space economically.
    ? The Construction Committee of Shenyang City denies the fact that the doors and windows of the house have long been blocked by the road and that dirty water flows into the house has been a great mental torture to the old woman who had no living space. This is of no difference from killing, just sooner or later, and with different means. This mercilessly shortened the life of the mother, for which the Construction Committee of Shenyang City should bear responsibility. Before she died, mother said that we could accept what happened accidentally. But they must explain what was done on purpose, like blocking the doors and windows of our house deliberately and making our house as a place for drainage (mentally torturing the whole family means depriving our rights of living, which violates Clause 3 of the World Declaration of Human Rights). They must explain whether the water inside our house was rain water or dirty water and who caused the blocking of the doors and windows. The Construction Committee of Shenyang City must give a saying of all this.
    Some people broke into our house and took away a tape recorder. Who will take care of the human rights of the victim?
    Yingbin Road was built by the Construction Committee of Shenyang City. As the road blocked the doors and windows of our house and dirty water came out from the sewer due to the poor engineering quality, chain reaction was caused: the business of the hostel had to be stopped (though we had complete formalities and business licenses for the business). During an action of justice, the authorities of Yuhong District Shenyang City required the victim to clean the refuse from the sewer on the sidewalk of Yingbin Road, why did the victim have to do that? Did the waste have anything to do with the victim? When the victim refused to do the cleaning, the law enforcement officials of Yuhong District then broke into our house and took away a new tape recorder worth 800 Yuan and it has not been returned since 1996 even though we paid many visits to authorities concerned to request it. The person who took our tape recorder received no blame at all. Instead, he got one promotion after another during this time.
    Evidence that our human rights were infringed goes as follows:
    Evidence 1. Field survey notes of Shenyang Drainage Office.
    2. Field survey note of Yuhong District Urban and Rural Construction Commission
    3. Social organization reaction.
    4. Organized several conversations.
    5. In 2000 on the Municipal People¡¯s Congress, the suggestion and proposal presented by Yuhong District.
    6. Written instructions of leaders in the Municipal People¡¯s Congress.
    7. Media reports.
    The victim thanks hereby those just people who had written notes in sober truth with moral and conscience, thanks the leaders who presented suggestion on the People¡¯s Congress, thanks the leaders who organized conversations, thanks the leaders of Municipal People¡¯s Congress for the written instructions and media reports.c.

    Facts:
    ? An unemployed aged woman, some unemployed people and a disabled person made a living by renting out the house, but the doors and windows were blocked and flow-in dirty water was as deep as 1.2 meters and now only the frame is left (the internal walls fell to make a mess inside), which makes it impossible for us to rent out the house, which in turn has caused us to loss 384000 Yuan (4000 Yuan a month for 8 years). The Shenyang Municipal government refuses to compensate us. ? As the road blocks the doors and windows of our house and the house becomes a place for drainage (but the Construction Committee of Shenyang City denies this), the victim could not protect his property: 40 beds and other household appliances of the hostel were soaked in dirty water, causing direct economic loss of 120 thousand Yuan to the victim. However, the Construction Committee of Shenyang City refuses to compensate us. ? No compensation has been made for the employees of the hostel when the business was stopped. ? Law enforce officials from the Yuhong District Shenyang City looted a tape recorder worth 800 Yuan but refuse to return it.
    We have strong evidence to support all the facts above. There is also evidence showing that some people harbor in the dark the Construction Committee of Shenyang City that has violated the World Declaration of Human Rights. The evidence also shows that some officials from the Construction Committee of Shenyang City were extremely cruel and merciless, caring nothing about people¡¯s life or death. This is doubtlessly a mean and disgusting event.
    We should be careful about evidence of the case and the compensation for the loss so that Shenyang city cannot slip away unpunished. I would like to request the International Committee of Human Rights to help solve this case. I would like journalists, people from all walks of life to blame the cruel and merciless case and continue to be concerned about it. Thank you.
