Set my sister & nephew free. They are trapped in China by inhumane travel bans

我的妹妹和侄子被困在中国无法离境,让他们从这不人道的限制出境早日重获自由

 

Current state

My sister, Cheng Chau Yang, and her 8-year old son, have been trapped in China for close to 2 years now. They are BOTH Malaysians.  

They have not broken any laws.

现状

我的妹妹与她8岁大的孩子都是马来西亚国籍,他们没触犯任何法律,但却已被困在中国将近两年。

 

Lack of transparency

They have not been given any formal documentation on details of the bans, nor was the Malaysian Embassy notified about the bans.

缺乏透明化

迄今,他们没有收到任何关于禁令的书面文件解释这禁令;即使马来西亚大使馆也没被告知此事。

 

My sister and son have been the victims of parental child-abduction

Previously, my sister’s former husband (“X”) and his family had abducted the child twice (the second abduction lasted 820 days), and attempted a violent abduction just outside the court’s premises on 15th January, 2016, in flagrant disobedience of the custody order. The third (attempted) abduction took place after X attended a court-supervised visitation of my nephew.

Despite these behaviors, X has successfully imposed the travel bans on my sister and nephew.

During the 8 months when X ignored the court order to hand over the child, the court repeatedly told my sister that they could not do much to uphold my sister’s custodial rights, and asked her to put in more effort herself. 

我妹妹与侄子都是几次父亲掳拐事件的受害者

之前,我妹妹的前夫(“X”)和他的家人一共掳拐并藏匿了小孩共两次(第二次持续了整整820天)。在2016年1月15日,“X”家人第三次无视法院判决,在出席完法院监督式探视后,在法庭外公然试图再度暴力抢夺我的侄子。

尽管在这一连串的恶劣行为后,X依旧成功通过上海法院将限制出境加施在我的妹妹和我的侄子身上。

这同一个法院,在我妹妹拿到孩子的抚养权但X却无视法院判决继续藏匿孩子时,告诉我妹妹抚养权在中国本来就是很难执行的,让我妹妹自己想办法。在那八个月的万念俱灰里,我妹妹得不到此法院的任何帮助,却在她自己找到孩子后的第三天,被同一个法院限制出境!

They can be trapped in China for the next 10 years

The court has verbally told my sister that X has the right to renew these bans till the son turns 18, so as to ensure his weekly access right. However, X has refused to see the child despite my sister’s repeated invitation and numerous proposals.

未来十年,他们恐怕会被困在中国

据法院的口述,X有权一直更新此禁令直到孩子18岁,以确保X每周的探视权。但是,尽管我妹妹一再提议各种探视方案,X持续拒绝探望孩子,除非让他把孩子再一次带走。

 

Impact of these travel bans

My sister and nephew’s basic right to freedom of movement have been deprived.

They can’t come home to visit our ailing 94-year old grandma and relatives, they can’t visit us during Chinese New Year and other major festivals, my sister’s livelihood is affected as she cannot attend meetings outside of China, and my nephew is deprived of the opportunities to attend study or holiday trips. This is inhumane!

限制出境的后果与影响

这严重剥夺了我妹妹和侄子的基本人身自由权。他们无法回家探访我们94岁的外婆和其他亲戚,在农历新年等重大节日期间也无法回家团圆看望我们;妹妹的工作也受到了影响,因为她无法出席任何国外的会议;我的侄子也被剥夺了出国参加任何学习或假期旅行的机会。这是不人道的!

 

These bans contravene UN International Conventions

The travel bans that prevent these two foreigners from leaving China are a mistake. They have to be, as they contravene multiple UN International Conventions that China is a signatory of, chief among them Article 10 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), Article 15 on the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

这些禁令违反了联合国国际公约

这些禁止两个没有犯法的外国人离开中国的禁令是一个错误。它们已违反中国签署的多项联合国国际公约,其中包括了“儿童权利公约”(CRC)第10条,“消除对妇女歧视公约”第15条( CEDAW)。

 

Will you help us?

I am a distraught sister of Chau Yang.

We have exhausted all channels of appeal in China, but have received no formal reply.

Will you help to set my sister and nephew free in China? Every signature and share will bring them closer to freedom.

恳请你的一臂之力

我是庄朝阳的姐姐,我为她感到十分忧心与焦虑。

即便我们穷尽了在中华人民共和国所有的上诉渠道,但依旧没有得到任何的正式回应。

在此,诚心要求你的帮忙让我的妹妹和我的侄子早日重获自由,每一个签名与分享将让他们离自由更近一步。
