“UPDATE: Gerald has been informed that his trial date has been put back to June 2nd, giving more time for the release of the evidence to take place. This is good news. Please continue to support this petition and Gerald’s pursuit of justice by sharing and signing.

Why this is important

When an African student and his girlfriend were attacked by a group of racists, in China, he was arrested by the same police that they called to their defence. Furthermore he’s not had any evidence released to him or his embassy and no action is being taken against his attackers.

Gerald Allah-Ompolo is the Congolese son of a doctor and customs official from Brazzaville. When he was at school he enjoyed literature and had dreams of being a judge. He studied Law in Brazzaville, before moving to China 7 years ago, to study to be a legal translator. He first went to Beijing and fell in love with the country, before deciding he wanted to study in a place with fewer foreigners, so he could get a deeper understanding of China. 4 years ago he moved to Chongqing in China, where he was drawn to the local culture, a year later he met his girlfriend and things have been going very well, excepting an incident on 17th August 2014.” (KEEP READING HERE)
