China
Ai Weiwei's appeal rejected

30.03.2012

 

 

Yesterday the Chinese authorities dismissed the appeal that Ai Weiwei has launched against the super-restitution ($ 2.4 million) asked for an alleged tax evasion of Beijing Fake Cultural Development Ltd, the company that takes care of his work. As Reuters reported, the artist said: “I can honestly say, I never had much expectations. This government, from the very beginning, has never changed any of its decisions. Which society is capable of that?”. But Ai Weiwei is not giving up and wants to continue his struggle. The tax penalty seems like an excuse to pass an important message. It seems that the dissident has been granted only a written hearing to replicate. Pu Zhiqiang, the lawyer of Beijing Fake Cultural Development Ltd, said that these measures are legal but not encouraging, because they usually confirm the initial decision. Last July, during a closed hearing, in which only Ai Weiwei’wife was admitted, the authorities didn’t show any proof of crime. “All these circumstances have led me to firmly believe that the handling of Ai Weiwei's company's (case) is a form of persecution,” said the lawyer.
