• CHINA: BEIJING: IMPERIAL COURT TIME PIECES EXHIBITION

    Mandarin/Eng/Nat A treasure trove of antique time pieces belonging to the Imperial Court on display at Beijing's Forbidden City, has been drawing crowds of Chinese and foreign tourists eager to catch a glimpse of some of the world's finest ornate clocks. The exhibit also serves as an experiment being conducted by officials of the Palace Museum to test the movements and time-keeping accuracy of the delicate machines that havn't been touched for years. As home to a succession of Chinese emperors over the past 800 years, Beijing's Forbidden City stands as a reminder of the endurance and splendour of the Imperial Court. Since 1925, after the departure of China's last emperor, the palace grounds have been maintained as a tourist attraction and a repository for some of the nat...

  • Beijing court sentences petitioner interceptors

    According to a female victim the Chinese central government is behind the whole thing. She said that she traveled from Henan to present a petition to the State Bureau for Letters and Calls, when she was intercepted by agents of local officials, taken to an office in Beijing, and then to a private security services center. Petitioners are often held in "black jails" in Beijing waiting to be repatriated. "Black jails" are illegal secret detention facilities where abuses, including rape often occur. There are warning signs discouraging petitions posted everywhere in China, since no official wants to risk their career by taking on such pleas. Corrupt officials spend hundreds of millions of yuan each year to "keep the peace." A Beijing court recently sentenced 10 people to jail for illegally...

The exhibit also serves as an experiment being conducted by officials of the Palace Museum to test the movements and time-keeping accuracy of the delicate machines that havn't been touched for years. As home to a succession of Chinese emperors over the past 800 years, Beijing's Forbidden City stands as a reminder of the endurance and splendour of the Imperial Court. Since 1925, after the departure of China's last emperor, the palace grounds have been maintained as a tourist attraction and a repository for some of the nation's priceless imperial treasures. Officials at the Clock Hall of the Palace Museum have recently dusted off some of the most precious and intricate old time pieces for public display. Tourists visiting the east wing of the Baohe Hall can view a collection of nine gold and gilt copper clocks which have been set to run in real time as a test of their accuracy and the strength of their moving parts. Chosen from a collection of about 1-thousand antique clocks preserved in the palace museum, the nine time pieces have performed well since officials reset the hands to reflect real time and cranked up the coiled motors. While all of the clocks are more than 100 years old, they still perform accurately. Organisers say the clockwork display is for the public to enjoy. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) "We are letting the clocks run for a while to show everyone and let them know the functions and wonders of the clocks." SUPER CAPTION:Mr. Shan, Director of the Forbidden City Inner Court in charge of antiques Clocks in the Palace Museum include those produced in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) Imperial Clockmaking Workshop. Others were crafted in China's southern Guangzhou province and Jiangsu Province in the east. Some of the clocks were presented as gifts from European countries to the Chinese emperors. The Chinese clockmaking industry began in the 18th century and its technique was perfected in the 19th century. Mr Shan said they're taking care when winding up the clocks. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) "But at the same time we are testing whether this operation will cause some damage to the clocks. So this is a period of expermentation." SUPER CAPTION:Mr. Shan, Director of the Forbidden City Inner Court in charge of antiques During the Qing Dynasty a great number of European metal handicrafts were imported, allowing Chinese craftsmen to combine the best of eastern artistry and western mechanical works. When put into motion these clocks create harmony of movement and sound with distinctive chimes and decorative figures, flowers and animals performing intricate movements. The Imperial Clockmaking Workshop in China was established in 1732 and employed over 100 craftsmen from both China and the west who were skilled in engineering, music and painting. Their products were designed to please and amuse the emperors. People at the clock display said a visit to the exhibition is time well spent. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) "I like it very much. These are all treasures with historical heritage." SUPER CAPTION: Vox Pop For the past 30 years these clocks have sat in silent storage to avoid damage. They are now up and running to determine how the ravages of time have affected their movement. Some visitors at the clock show said the good old fashioned way of telling the time is the best.

In 2006, he spoke to the Vice President of the European Parliament, Mr. Edward McMillan-Scott, who was visiting China at the time. Cao wanted to free his wife Yang Xiaojing, She was detained in a Beijing labor camp for practicing Falun Gong, a traditional Chinese spiritual practice. She died in 2009 after sustained injuries of interrogation and imprisonment. After he met with McMillan-Scott in 2006, security officials arrested Cao, who also practices Falun Gong. He was sentenced to five years in prison, and was not released until September 2011. Then, on June 8th, 2012, police suddenly arrested him in Beijing. Without a trial, Cao was sent to labor camp for more than two years for carrying Falun Gong literature. Attorney Li says the sentence has no legal basis, because there is no Chinese law that makes it illegal to possess Falun Gong books. [Li Xiongbing, Attorney for Cao Dong]: "The authorities act arbitrarily. It's obvious now the judiciary isn't working on this, and it's eroding the legal system. It's a sad place for the country and citizens to be, because the country is not being ruled by law." The Chinese regime's labor camp system allows police to sentence individual to up to four years without any legal procedure. It's come under mounting criticism for destroying the rule of law in China. This week, state-run media suggested the labor camp system would be put through reform. Observers say the devil is in the details. They will watch cautiously to see whether any positive change will be forthcoming.
