His trial was the fourth at the Tianjin court this week.Under the influence of Hu Shigen, leader of an illegal church, Gou formulated ideas to subvert state power, the court said in a statement. Hu was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in prison after being convicted of subverting state power Wednesday.Gou, on assignment from Hu, went abroad to attend training in theories and methods of state subversion, the court added.Since 2014, Gou colluded with a group of like-minded religious people, petitioners, lawyers and legal administrators to agitate in controversial cases and incite public hatred of the state.He also arranged meetings and actively engaged in criminal activities to subvert the government and the socialist system, harming national security and social stability, the court said.”Todays trial enabled me to recognize the harm Ive brought to the country, society, and my family,” Gou said in his final statement.”I plead guilty, express my sincere remorse and accept the ruling.”He said he had been deluded by the Wests ideology of democracy and was used by “foreign forces and those with ulterior motives,” causing grave damage to social stability.”Im grateful to the government for saving me and I resolve not to participate in any criminal activities and will make a clean break with all those anti-government forces,” Gou said.He also thanked the judicial organs for helping him contact a hospital while he was ill in detention, saying he was really moved by such actions.According to a court statement, he was given a light sentence because he confessed, testified against others and repented.The court also decided that Gou posed no major threat to the community.The second branch of the Peoples Procuratorate of Tianjin Municipality filed charges against Gou with Tianjin No. 2 Intermediate Peoples Court on July 15.During Fridays trial, the presiding judge informed the defence team of Gous rights and obligations in litigation. The defendant and defenders did not object to any evidence presented by prosecutors.More than 40 people, including lawyers and journalists from China and overseas, observed the trial.Prosecutors told the court that Gou, together with others including Hu Shigen, Zhou Shifeng and Zhai Yanmin, had conspired and plotted to subvert state power, and had “established a systematic ideology, method and steps to achieve it.”The defendant was accused of hyping up incidents to attract international attention and carrying out activities aimed at subverting state power. One such case was a fatal incident in Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province in December 2013, which resulted in two deaths.After the incident, Gou joined others to support the suspect in the intentional injury case for the Suzhou incident, misrepresenting him as a “hero of legal rights protection.” Their photos were then posted by some overseas anti-China websites.In January 2014, Gou instigated public hatred for the government, saying “the authorities are against the people” during a conference held in Beijing.”Gous criminal facts have revealed the malicious intent of some ax-grinders, who have used illegal religious activities as a disguise and colluded with overseas anti-China forces to commit a series of crimes to subvert state power,” prosecutors were quoted as saying.0PhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsActivist accused of subversion pleads guiltyHealth certificate steps reduced for foreignersGuangdong police bust illegal fund-raising gangHimalayan rail route endorsedBeijing lawyer Zhou Shifeng jailed for subversionChina opens S China Sea websiteMinistry issues draft rules for car-hailing business700 officials punished by green teamsHangzhou learns the language of summit successPanda twin births boost the hopes for survivalState Council NewsConsumption spurs economic growth in H1China stresses supervision on reform through auditingThe futuristic public bus TEB-1 is just for tourism rather than for transport, local authorities said Friday in Qinhuangdao, North Chinas Hebei province, where the elevated bus took its first road test on Tuesday.HighlightsMother delays cancer treatment to deliver babyThree provinces to build joint national park to protect pandasExperts want sex education tackled by schoolsChinese researchers plan space travel at lower cost for common peopleHot TopicsRough and tough world of soldiers training Ground level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planning Smog Fox Hunt Beijing integrates with Tianjin, HebeiSpecialThe dawning of a new age: InnovationTorrential rains cause widespread flooding…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
