Du Daobin, one of three named plaintiffs in a human rights lawsuit brought...against Cisco Systems...("Cisco") alleging knowing and willful enablement of the Chinese Communist Party's harassment, arrest, and torture of Chinese political activists, was questioned the morning of August 2nd by Chinese Communist Party officials regarding his involvement in the lawsuit...Mr. Du was detained...by Chinese police and interrogated by senior officials from China's Ministry of Public Security...Mr. Du's interrogators first warned him about his recent Internet activity (which they monitor) and then demanded information about his role in Du Daobin et al. v. Cisco Systems, Inc ("Du v. Cisco"), including the names of his contacts in China and America...Mr. Du has long been a victim of China's Cisco-engineered "Golden Shield Project," a sophisticated system of Internet filters and censoring techniques, which both restricts access to content disfavored by the CCP, and allows "Internet police" to identify the sources of such disfavored content.
