The 18th Announcement Regarding the Open Letter on Liu Juhua’s Plagiarism Case
November 15, 2013
Since the second half of 2012, Liu Juhua, a Master’s degree recipient from the Graduate School of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (GSCASS) in 2002, a chief reporter with Xinhua News Agency, and the wife of Fang Shimin (Fang Zhouzi), the chieftain of a transnational internet criminal fraud and terrorist group, has been suing people multiple times, apparently trying to silence, in the name of law, the reasonable and legitimate questioning about her family and education backgrounds, and the plagiarism in her Master’s degree thesis. To coordinate with Liu’s malicious litigations, Xinhua News Agency, Liu’s employer, has already issued a certificate to prove that “Liu Juhua works diligently, her style is strict, and her performance is outstanding.” We strongly urge GSCASS to do the same thing, i.e. issuing a certificate to establish the following facts:
1. Liu Juhua had proper qualification before her applying for enrollment in GSCASS; she took the entrance examination, and her test score was above the minimum admission line;
2. Liu Juhua did take and successfully complete the required courses for a Master’s degree at GSCASS;
3. Liu Juhua didn’t commit plagiarism in her Master’s degree thesis, or the extent of her plagiarism was acceptable to Chinese government or GSCASS.
We also earnestly appeal to Beijing Municipality Haidian District People's Court, who has accepted and is hearing Liu Juhua’s lawsuits, to summons Mr. Fang Keli, the Dean of GSCASS while Liu Juhua was a student there, Mr. Liu Yingqiu, the former Dean of GSCASS, Mr. Huang Xiaoyong, the current Dean of GSCASS, Mr. Shi Tongyu, Liu Juhua’s Master’s degree thesis advisor at GSCASS, and Mr. Chen Lidan, the Chairman of Liu Juhua’s thesis defense committee at GSCASS, to testify under oath in the trials, and make their testimonies public.
