[TheEpochTimesNovember192023](Epoch Times reporter Li Yuanming interviewed and reported) During the CCP leader’s visit to the United States, anti-communist protesters were beaten by CCP gangs; at the same time, Nanjing media person Sun Lin was suspected of being detained by the National Security Bureau for forwarding a protest video He broke into his home and beat him to death, which attracted intense attention from the outside world.
On November 18, 2023, pro-democracy activist Sun Liyong received a text message from Sun Lin’s close relatives saying: “The famous Nanjing dissident Mr. Sun Lin has passed away… The specific cause of death is being verified.”
Sun Liyong subsequently further informed the news about Sun Lin’s death on Twitter.
At around 1:00 noon on November 17, a group of national security officers from Nanjing Xuanwu Branch broke into Sun Lin’s home. Then neighbors heard the sound of fighting inside the house. At 2:44 p.m., Sun Lin was sent to Jiangsu Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine Hospital, and the hospital issued a death report at 5:45 p.m.
The family also spoke to Sun Lin at 10:44 a.m. on the 16th, and everything was normal. Sun Lin had just undergone a comprehensive physical examination three days ago, and his physical condition was normal. Last night, the family members were summoned to the hospital by the state security. The family members asked to see the body, but the state security refused to let them see it. They only let the family go home at about 3 o’clock this morning, promising that they could see the body at 2 o’clock this afternoon. Sun Lin’s body is currently under the control of Nanjing National Security and has been transferred from the hospital to Nanjing Xitian Temple (cemetery).
After Sun Lin’s death, the state security took control of Sun Lin’s daughter, Sun Yijia, and went to the residence of Sun Lin’s ex-wife He Fang and asked He Fang to do Sun Yijia’s work and not to cause trouble, otherwise he would bear the consequences.
Li Qing, a friend of Sun Lin and a human rights activist living in the United States, told The Epoch Times reporter that in the past few days, Sun Lin’s Twitter has been retweeting some situations of American protesters and the ugly performances of little pink fans. Yesterday, she discovered that Sun Lin’s Twitter There was no update for a day. I immediately called him via telegram but got no response. I called him on WeChat but got no response. Finally, I saw the news of Sun Lin’s death on Twitter.
“On November 15, I protested in San Francisco, USA, and he made the last video for us.” Li Qing met in an interview with Sun Lin when he petitioned for rights in Beijing in 2015. We have kept in touch since then, and went to the court in Nanjing in 2016. Support him.
“He is a very just and bloody reporter. He hates evil and is very refreshing.” Li Qing said that Sun Lin’s WeChat Moments were completely blocked. The Nanjing City National Security Guard, who was always looking after him, always invited him out for tea. When Sun Lin was sentenced, his family was torn apart by the local government, and his daughter never lived with him.
Public reports show that Mr. Sun Lin was born on April 15, 1955, in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, and his online name is “Zhengmu”. In 1998, he worked at Nanjing TV Station and was the former editor-in-chief of the “Metropolitan” special issue of Nanjing’s “Today’s Business Newspaper”. He was dismissed for writing a commentary article criticizing current ills.
Since October 2006, Sun Lin has been covering a large number of civil rights protection events as a citizen journalist for Boxun.com and Without Borders. In May 2007, Sun Lin recorded and uploaded a video at Tiananmen Square in which he applied to the Olympic Organizing Committee for interviews and reporting on the Olympic Games. This touched the sensitive nerves of senior CCP officials and was later sentenced to four years in prison.
In 2016, he was accused of publishing or forwarding some political articles on the Internet with the content of establishing a democratic China and inheriting the Three People’s Principles. He shouted “Down with the Communist Party” at a party member meeting in a community in Nanjing. He was charged with “inciting subversion of the country”. “Government crime” was sentenced to 4 years in prison again.
During Xi Jinping’s visit to the United States, Sun Lin posted a large number of videos on Twitter of anti-communist people protesting against the CCP leader. Outsiders speculated that his visit by state security was related to Xi’s visit to the United States. I asked him to delete the post, but he refused and started arguing and fighting…
Recently, Sun Lin has also actively participated in the voice chat activities of the wall demolition movement. Last Saturday, Sun Lin told everyone at the space conference that the Nanjing National Security Bureau might look for him in the next few days. He predicted that Nanjing would attack him…
Sun Liyong said, Sun Lin is too strong! Li Qing said, “It’s really sad that they can kill a living person!”
The reporter called Nanjing Domestic Security Officer Li Jie several times to ask whether Sun Lin was beaten to death, but he refused to answer the call.
Sun Lin’s death attracted strong attention from the outside world, with many expressing shock and condemnation.
Zhou Fengsuo, the founder of Humane China, posted that he was concerned about the death of dissident Sun Lin at the hands of the Nanjing National Security Bureau. He called on people from all walks of life at home and abroad to call the 110 police service desk in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, requesting that a case be opened to investigate Mr. Sun Lin’s beating death by the National Security Bureau, and that the murderer be arrested and informed to the public. Disclose relevant details of the case.
Historical document scholar Wu Renhua said he was deeply saddened by the death of Nanjing dissident Mr. Sun Lin! Nanjing State Security broke into the home of dissident Sun Lin and beat him to death. The Communist Party owed a new blood debt.
The official tweet of Mainland China’s prisoner of conscience database stated, “Many dissidents have been killed recently. We must not only pay attention to prisoners of conscience in custody, but also pay attention to the status and safety of released prisoners of conscience in large prisons!”
The Epoch Times learned that the Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping visited the United States, and the Chinese Communist Party police did a lot of stability maintenance work. As early as a few weeks ago, the National Security Agency had been continuously searching for the movements of sensitive people in the country, and tightened control in various places near the summit, while preventing exiled petitioners and dissidents from going to San Francisco to protest.
