Law Reform for Yue Yue (Wang Yue)
- Liu Xiaoming, Chinese Ambassador in UK
- United Kingdom
Wang Yue, nicknamed Yue Yue, a 2 year old toddler from Foshan City in China. Yue Yue was ran over 3 times, twice by the same van which had hit her originally. During this incident, another 18 people walked, drove or cycled around Yue Yue's body on the street.
However, Chen Xianemi moved Yue Yue's body out of the road, before Yue Yue's mother took her to hospital. At hospital, Yue Yue spent 7 days in intensive care where she was pronunced brain dead. After the 7 days, Yue Yue passed away.
Liu Xiaoming, Chinese Ambassador in UK
We, the British community, call for UK Government support for the Chinese lawyers who are in pursuit of new laws regarding Wang Yue's Death.
The lawyers are pushing for a law that would offer legal protection to bystanders who offer to help strangers who are injured or ill. Moreover, it has been proposed that such a law be paired with another that would punish those who see someone in need and refuse to help.
These laws are needed to completely erase the impression the Chinese community has, that assisting people who are in need of help will jeopardize their financial stability and criminal record. This is traceable to the Peng Yu case (2007, Nanjing) who helped an elderly woman and was sentenced to pay 40% of her medical bills.
The people in charge should take a stand and we believe you should represent the British voice regarding this matter.
