 康原先生所领导的“中美对话基金会”2005年10月5日向中国民主党海外流亡总部所通报了我们和外界均不知的中国民主党人廉彤的有关情况如下:

1. 廉彤现在被关押在上海提篮桥监狱。2003年7月2日初审结果是:被告人廉彤犯颠覆国家政权罪,判处有期徒刑四年,剥夺政治权利一年。(自2003年1月17日起至2007年1月16日止。)

2. 廉彤被中国政府指控的犯罪事实是1999年到2000年为投靠境外敌对组织“中国民主党”,在人民日报社网站论坛上发表多篇煽动颠覆我国政权、推翻我国社会主义制度的文章,并与该敌对组织负责人勾结,进行煽动颠覆我国人民民主专政的政权和推翻社会主义制度的活动。

关于廉彤(潜龙)的介绍

王希哲(中国民主党顾问)

文立:

我感谢康原先生和他的中美对话基金会,为救助所有中国政治犯,包括营救廉彤的努力。

我向你大概介绍一下:
廉彤,当年是澳大利亚中国留学生。在海外的中文网站上曾非常活跃,立场属民主派。笔名常用"潜龙",有时也用真名。

1999年,也就是中国民主党成立的第二年,他来Email要求参加中国民主党联总。约2000年,他来信说,他不愿在澳大利亚呆下去,愿意回国为民主事业作些工作。随之,便回国了。他学的是金融,回上海后,问我可以作些什么,我要求他不要去联络上海的民主党组织,相反,建议他若有可能,应该加入共产党,发挥自己金融专业特长,在体制内先立下足来。但他仍然喜欢在国内各BBS论坛,如人民日报的强国论坛去活跃一下,他看不下去那里完全被反民主派们霸占。于是,我劝他低调,即便宣传民主,也应尽可能"擦边",不要过露锋芒,被鹰犬抓住。一切长期打算。

2002年至2003年间,国内SARS疫症爆发,在如何批评中共政府隐瞒疫情,贻祸人民的尺度上,廉彤与我发生了一些分歧意见。他倒是认为,为了避免更大的恐慌,中共适度控制疫情报道是必要的,批评可以,但不应对胡温过于苛责。其实我未必不同意他的意见,只是觉得,批评尺度,海内外可以有别罢了,廉彤也不需对海外的批评不满。这本是正常分歧,但自此廉彤便未再与我联络了。因那时我与国内各方面人士联络较多,廉彤的久无来电,我也就没有特别注意,以为他与国内经常有的一些朋友那样,逐渐自我淡出了。不料,今年康原先生竟向我查证廉彤,我这才知道,廉彤2003年初被捕(也就是SARS期间),判了四年徒刑,现在,还剩一年多就要刑满了。一方面愤慨,愤慨廉彤这样"海归"的温和而理性的民主青年,共产党都不放过,要逮捕他,判重刑;一方面惭愧,康原先生对话基金会的工作,相比我们,真做得太杰出了!

看材料。廉彤被上海法院指控的"犯罪事实是,1999年到2000年投靠境外敌对组织‘中国民主党’,在人民日报社网站论坛上发表多篇煽动颠覆我国政权,推翻我国社会主义制度的文章,并与该敌对组织负责人勾结..."。

我不知上海法院指控的是廉彤什么具体的文章,但我可以肯定又是"莫须有"的冤案,因为廉彤是理性的,他会主张民主,但决不会有什么"煽动颠覆"的东西,何况是在国内的人民日报论坛上?为了便于康原先生救援廉彤,文立建议今天应该公开已经迟到几年的廉彤被捕的消息了。我赞成,特向康原先生、文立写这样一封关于廉彤(潜龙)的介绍信。
谢谢

external
 
“The Dui Hua Foundation” is leaded by John Kamm, founder and chairman of the foundation who has informed The 
Overseas Exiles Headquarters of The CDP regarding the situation of the member of China Democracy Party, LIAN Tong, 
who had been not known by the external even us as follows:   
 
1, Lian Tong was detained in the Shanghai Tilanqiao Prison. The outcome of first trial was: the defendant, Lian Tong was 
guilty of subverting the political power of the state, was sentenced for 4 years imprison, depriving political rights for one 
year. (From 17/01/2003 to 16/01/2007).

and he colluded with the person in charge of the hostile organisation carrying on the activities of instigation subverting

Introduction of LIAN Tong (Qian Long)

Wang Xizhe (consultant of CDP)
 
Wenli:


I would like to say thank
John Kamm  and his “The Dui Hua Foundation” for their efforts of rescuing for all Chinese prisoner of state included rescuing Lian Tong.   
I would like to introduce him to you briefly: Lian Tong was a Chinese overseas student in Australia in those years. He was very activity on Chinese websites, and stands at democratic side, often used the pen name as “Qian Long”, and sometime used his real name.     
 
In 1999, also it was the second year of China Democracy Party found; he sent Email to me and asked to join China 
Democracy Party joined headquarters. In 2000, he mailed to me saying he won’t stay in Australia anymore and wanted 
go back China doing activities for the democratic cause. Afterward he went back. He studied finance and asked me 
what he can do after he had been back Shanghai, and I asked him do not try to contact with the organisation of CDP in 
Shanghai. I advised him to try to join CCP if it is possible and give full play to his financial knowledge or skill, and have 
a foothold in CCP, but he still like activating on internal Chinese websites BBS forums, such as Qiangguo Forum on the 
People’s Daily because he can not bear that was forcibly occupied by Anti-democratic side completely. So I advised him 
to keep as low tone even publicize democracy, try to play as a edge ball and do not make a display of his abilities in order 
to avoid seized by seizers, and have a long-term plan.   


Between 2002 and 2003, SARS was broken out in China. Lian Tong and I had divergent on this issue that was how to control the scale for criticizing the CCP authority hiding the facts and leave a legacy of trouble to the people. He thought that CCP controlled the reports of epidemic situation appropriately was necessary in order to avoid more panic. The critique was necessary but should not make excessive demands and be over critical to Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao. In fact I should not disagree with him and I just thought that the scale controlled can be different between internal and external. Lian Tong should not be unsatisfied for external critiques. The divergent views were common but since then Lian Tong has never contacted with me any more. Because I have many contacts with the varied people in China, Lian Tong did not keep touch with me and I really did not pay special attention for that and thought he might be just to fade out himself gradually like those my previously friends from internal. Unexpectedly, Mr
John Kamm investigated and verify Lian Tong from me this year then I have just known Lian Tong was arrested in 2003 (during the SARS) and given 4 years sentence imprison, and just leave 1 more year at present.

I feel indignation that CCP could not let him pass even like Lian Tong as a return to his homeland and democratic youth 
with reasonable and moderates temperament; they arrested him and give him with a heavy sentence. I feel be ashamed 
of that compared with the works of “The Dui Hua Foundation” is leaded by John Kamm, they are remarkable!     


I have read the materials. Lian Tong was accused by Shanghai court about the facts of criminal offence were that “he published many articles of instigation subverting the political power of the state and overthrow the socialist system on
the Qiangguo Forum on People’s Daily. He threw himself into the activities with the foreign hostile organisation “China Democracy Party” between 1999 and 2000, and he colluded with the person in charge of the hostile organisation…”        
I do not know what articles were accused by Shanghai court but I can affirm that is another fabricated charge because Lian Tong is reasonable. He should demand democracy but never would have like “instigation subverting” things, in addition that forum is internal forum of the “People’s Daily”? In order to rescue Lian Tong through Mr John Kamm, Wenli suggested that we should make the news of Lian Tong arrested known to the public which had already delayed a few years. I have agreed with that and write this introducing letter to Mr John Kamm and Wenli for Lian Tong (Qian Long).
