October 16 denotes the 34th day a 92-year-old woman, Hang Xiaomei, was illegally detained in a cell by local authorities. Hang Xiaomei, formally living at 268 Liyuan Road, Huangpu District, Shanghai, is both blind and deaf.
On September 13, Huangpu District governor Wang Wentao in collusion with real estate developer Wang Changpo ordered several dozen policemen and plainclothes police to forcefully demolish Hang's legal residence ignoring her personal safety. They also brutally abducted the 92-year-old blind and deaf elderly from her home.
Since her kidnap, Hang Xiaomei has been held in a dark, cold, and damp room with no sunlight. The Huangpu District has also forced her family to accept the unfair deal from the Huangpu District Real Estate Development Enterprise Company.
