China: Woman abducted, sold and held captive for five years as wife of stranger

China Human TraffickingMing Pao says in its report titled “Abducted woman rescued on train after 5 years”, “A woman was rescued on a train for Lanzhou after being abducted for 5 years. Two men were detained by the police for investigation

Lanzhou Morning Daily said in its report on May 12 that when Qingdao-to-Lanzhou K1027 train left Weifang Station, Xu Weiwei, a crew member in charge of hard-seat carriage no. 13 of the Lanzhou Passenger Train Crew District on duty on the train, found a young woman sitting in the toilet and weeping all the time.

Upon enquiry, one of the two men traveling along with the woman told Xu that he was a native of Tianshui, Gansu Province and that the woman was his wife. He brought the woman out to work two months before but unexpectedly his wife had recently had some mental problem. He and his relative were bringing her home for treatment on the train.

As the woman kept on weeping silently, Liang Lieguang, the head of the train crew, came over in haste and found that there were traces of wound on the woman’s hands and that the woman looked suspectable. At 10:00 pm, Liang and a railway policeman questioned the woman alone on the excuse of checking her id card.

The woman, Xiao Qin by name, 28, finally broke her silence. She said she was a Yunan native. When she was 23, she unfortunately fell into the hands of human traffickers and after lots of twists and turns, was sold to a male stranger as his wife in a remote mountain village in Tianshui.

She was closely watched by his family members all the time, and was not allowed to go a step outside his home. She has tried various ways to escape but was seized back every time she fled. In the five years, she suffered every kind of devastation and torment and gave birth to a son and a daughter for the man.

Xiao Qin said that perhaps as the children gradually grew older, the man relaxed his watch on her and got a fake id card for her. In February 2013, the man brought her to Weifang to work. However he made arrangement for his fellow-villagers to watch and control her around the work site. Due to Xiao Qin’s poor mental state, in May, 2013, the man suspected that she had some mental problem and decided to bring her back to Tianshui, Gansu.

The railway policeman immediately interrogated the two men. One of them said that he bought Xiao Qin for 30,000 yuan ($4,827) that year. The policeman detained the two at once. When the train arrived at Tianshui Station on May 13, railway police transferred the two men and Xiao Qin to Tianshui police.

Note: The man who bought a woman as his sex slave against the law was so bold as to bring her to a city far away to work along with him to make money for him. The man could feel quite safe as instead of sympathising and helping the woman, his fellow-villagers helped him watch and control the woman all the time! Where was their sense of law or even sense of sympathy and benevolence as human beings?

The man had kept the woman as his sex slave and maltreated the woman for five years with the help of his fellow-villagers!

What a country! No wonder, the wonton Cultural Revolution might happen there and Red Gaurds and rebels could persecute innocent people at will there.

Remember: China is a horrible place for young children and even grown-up young women. Be careful when you travel to China especially if you are a young woman and look like a Chinese.

About chankaiyee2

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.

    Just one story of millions around the world, but each is worth understanding. But what happens after the story plays out? What does this woman do now? Where does she go to rebuild her life. Does she ever recover from the experience?
