En me baladant sur le forum the That's Beijing (www.thatsbeijing.com) je suis tombé sur un message d'une étrangère qui s'est fait boxer par les videurs du Vics. Apparemment, ca n'est pas un cas isolé et le traitement réservé aux étrangers dans les bars et les boites de Pékin me laisse trop souvent un goût amer. Voici les faits racontés par cette jeune fille:
Beijing - June 5, 2005
I am a foreign girl in my mid 20's. I've lived in Beijing for many years.
Friday night 5 club security guards punched me repeatedly in the face till i was unconscious.
No body called the police or an ambulance.
Dozens of people watched as 5 big Chinese bouncers pushed me down some stirs nad closed fist punched me in the head.
My younger brother dragged me away. The local police refuse to do anything because the owner is very "influential".
I know the owner of this club, I went to see him after i regained consciousness, he was at another club, which he owns. He refused to call the police and had his security drag me away. I was forced to drive myself home.
My embassy has been closed for the weekend. I will go there tomorrow but i feel it is futile.
I look like the elephant man. I have 2 black eyes, large red lumps all over my head, bruises all over my body and a dislocated jaw.
AND NOT A SINGLE PERSON SEEMS TO CARE !
The clubs name is VICS the owner is Paul, he also owns the DEN in Beijing.
I don't know what else to do so I am spreading the word as much as I can.
Thanks for listening.
