 The case behind the anti domestic violence law: married men put chastity lock on pregnant girlfriends

On April 23, 2000, a program called chastity lock was broadcast in todays story, which is also the earliest program focusing on domestic violence in todays story.

The show is about a man who, in order to control his 22-year-old girlfriend, puts a lock on her to ensure her chastity.

Yao, then 48, opened a clinic in Wuhou District, Chengdu. He used dishonorable means to commit the girl Rong Rong to him. According to Rong Rong, the first time I went to the clinic was to see a doctor. When I went to the infusion for the second time, I didnt know what I had taken first. When I asked him, he said that I would take the medicine first. After I took it, I was dizzy, so I finally lost myself to him.

Although Rong Rong is 26 years younger than Yao, she thinks she has no choice but to live with this man after losing her life. 19 years ago, Rong Rongs ideas were representative. The traditional view of chastity was still the shackle of Rong Rongs thoughts. Rong Rong didnt think of it at all. Just after they cohabited, Yao put a real lock on her.

Rong Rong: Yao suspected that I had stolen someone, he asked me to write a review, to write his outline, not to write to type.

When the reporter interviewed Yao, he asked him if he thought it was against the law. Yao replied, I think its housework. She agreed with me. Its the same as Zhou Yus fight against Huang Gai. One is willing to fight and the other is willing to suffer.

Rong Rong said that Yao didnt agree to lock her up at that time, but Yao forced her to operate by violence. At that time, Rong Rong was pregnant for four months. After locking up, Rong Rong couldnt bear the pain. She asked neighbors for help. Neighbors reported to the police. The public security organ arrested Yao on suspicion of insulting women. Until now, she didnt know that Yao had been married for more than ten years. His wife couldnt stand Yaos domestic violence and ran away with her little daughter. But Rong Rong, who only cohabited with Yao, became a substitute for Yaos domestic violence. In front of the camera, Yao said it was a household chore, and the expert refuted it very definitely: its not a household chore at all.

In fact, since the 1990s, many experts, scholars and people of insight have been advocating to stop domestic violence through public power. They also called for anti domestic violence to be legislated.

In 2001, the marriage law of the peoples Republic of China was revised and Prohibition of domestic violence was written into the law for the first time. At the same time, the marriage law also stipulates that husband and wife have equal status in the family, and they have the obligation to support each other. It seems that the legal provisions of the two manifestos can be interpreted in fresh cases.

On July 16, 2002, the murder of the Song family broadcast by todays story tells a very rare case of domestic violence. The case happened on May 21, 2002. Meng Mou, a resident of Shenyang City, was killed at home. It was his wife Huang Mou who did not commit the crime.

Huang Mou: after all, I hurt my lover. I love him very much. It doesnt matter if I pay for him. I also recognize that I pay for him. However, there is a big gap between what the reporter learned and what Huang said.

Meng and Huang have been married for more than ten years. In the years before the incident, both husband and wife were laid off and living in poverty. His wife, Huang Juqiang, sells newspapers in the daytime and takes a bath in the bath in the evening. He earns 1500 yuan a month, which is the economic pillar of the family. But her husband, Meng, has been idling around without any financial resources. Besides, they also drink, gamble and pay on credit. Therefore, they often fight. However, it is basically the wife who beats her husband. According to the neighbors around, the couple had a small fight one or two days and a big fight three or two days, but every time they fought, the husband never fought back.

One day half a month before the crime, Meng said that he had found a job loading and unloading fruits in the fruit market, which really made his wife happy for several days. On May 21, 2002, Huang Mou, his wife, ran to the fruit market to learn about the situation, but found that her husband didnt work there at all. In the evening, when her husband came home, they quarreled, and then moved their hands. His wife Huang grabbed the head of a shovel, subdued her husband twice, and tied Meng to a chair for a violent beating.

Huang said in an interview that she didnt know what was going on at that time. Her mind was blank. She wondered why her husband didnt learn well. He was nearly 50 years old. How could he do this? She was very angry at that time. From 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., my wife was tired of scolding, scolding and beating Finally, looking at the husband lying on his back froth, his wife panicked and hurriedly called her 14-year-old daughter to 120, and then the police arrived at the scene. In the end, Meng, her husband, died, and Huang, her wife, was sentenced for intentional injury to death. Their daughter, too, was deeply hurt.

When commenting on the case, experts pointed out the important source of domestic violence: unequal status between members of a married family. In terms of the relationship between husband and wife, if one party thinks that he or she is the pillar of the family economically, others will be subject to his or her own psychology. When a woman carries the burden of her family, she feels very aggrieved and furious with her husband, but she has no right to get a so-called balance by violating the others right to life and health. After all, there is a legal obligation between husband and wife to help each other.

On December 29, 2011, Li Yangs divorce case was reported, and foreign women who suffered from domestic violence bravely demonstrated themselves. In those days, experts and scholars repeatedly called for the introduction of anti domestic violence law as soon as possible, so that the law becomes more operational, so that the vulnerable in the family no longer fear.

In 2012, the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China was held, which proposed the strategic goal of comprehensively promoting the rule of law and accelerating the construction of a socialist country under the rule of law. The construction of the rule of law has entered the fast lane.

On December 27, 2015, the Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress deliberated and passed the law of the peoples Republic of China on domestic violence, and the appeal became a reality. Since then, the anti domestic violence work has entered a new era.

In response to the question of why anti domestic violence legislation has been successful for such a long time, Mo Jihong, director of the Institute of international law of the Academy of Social Sciences, said that the family ethics formed in the feudal social history of our country for thousands of years, that is, the family does not talk about the law, the family talks about feelings, the fight is the family scold is love, the fight is not scold to get worse. People have a high tolerance for violence among family members and a poor sense of rights protection. So it took more than ten years to do social work again and again, to point out the harm, and gradually through the participation of news media to let the public realize that this problem really needs to be solved, and the legislation needs to intervene, so that everyone can gradually reach a consensus. This is also why the anti domestic violence law can be issued and generally recognized by the society, which is also the embodiment of the development of the times and the progress of the times.

On November 25, 2019 (International Day against domestic violence), online hongyuya (he, female, 28 years old) accused Tuotuo (Chen, male, 44 years old) of domestic violence on her microblog, and exposed a video surveillance of violence being dragged by her boyfriend in the elevator. The incident quickly attracted attention and again aroused public discussion on the social issue of domestic violence. Immediately, the Public Security Bureau of Jiangbei District of Chongqing Municipality issued a micro blog saying that relevant departments attached great importance to the investigation and intervened in the investigation as soon as possible. Chongqing municipal and District Womens Federation said it strongly condemned all domestic violence and would provide help and services to the parties concerned. The political and legal departments of Jiangbei District have carried out investigation and handling according to law.

A few days later, the public security organ of Jiangbei District announced the results of the investigation. From the beginning of April 2019 to the end of August 2019, Chen Mou repeatedly dragged, pushed, beat and other illegal acts of intentional injury to He Mou (He Mous degree of injury is not more than minor injury or minor injury). In addition, it was found that Chen also committed illegal acts threatening the personal safety of others through wechat. According to the law of the peoples Republic of China on administrative penalties for public security administration, the public security organs shall impose administrative penalties on Chen for the above-mentioned two illegal acts, and impose administrative detention for 20 days and a fine.

In order to prevent Chen from deliberately harming him again, he applied to Jiangbei District Peoples court for personal safety protection order on November 27, 2019. At present, the court has made a personal safety protection order for he according to the facts after examination.

CCTV host Bai Yansong commented on the perpetrators of domestic violence in the program on November 30, 2019: can a man who beats his wife or girlfriend call him a man? I dont think so. As for whether it can be called a person, everyone has his own opinion. Although the perpetrator of domestic violence is not necessarily a man, you can understand the similar mood.

Domestic violence belongs to intentional injury. According to the relevant provisions of the criminal law of China, Whoever intentionally injures another persons body and causes minor injury to another person or more shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not more than three years, criminal detention or public surveillance. Whoever intentionally injures or causes serious injury to a person shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not less than three years but not more than 10 years; whoever causes death to a person or causes serious injury to a person by special cruel means and causes serious disability shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not less than 10 years, life imprisonment or death. For a single injury that is not serious, but is indeed a long-term abuse, Chinas criminal law stipulates that: maltreatment of family members, if the circumstances are serious, shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not more than two years, criminal detention or public surveillance, resulting in the serious injury and death of the victim, shall be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not less than two years but not more than seven years.

In addition, the legal profession stressed that victims of domestic violence must pay attention to the retention of evidence, including audio, video, medical records and so on. Because the responsibility of the perpetrator should be determined according to the injury of the victim.

Domestic violence, which is forbidden by law, is abhorrent by society. Anti domestic violence is the common responsibility of the state, society and every family. Every family member is also obliged to be a participant, supervisor and practitioner of anti domestic violence. Only when the grass-roots protection net is woven tightly and the domestic violence is rotten and illegal, can it perish in the sun.
