This is the case of dozens of other families in Wuhan, and the French channel quoted them unanimously on accusing the authorities in Wuhan of concealing the truth of the epidemic, lying to people and neglecting responsibilities, which resulted in a large number of victims.
Members of these families also told the French channel team that the authorities had repeatedly refused requests to file complaints that they had filed, and tried to restrict the lawyers who assist them in pleading with them in the local courts. “If I succeed in filing a case before justice, thousands of citizens who have lived through the same situation will follow me.” As said Zhang Hai, the son of the Corona victim.
Hay added, “What matters to me is the attempt. Even if I cannot prosecute the Wuhan authorities, I would have tried to uncover what the authorities are trying to hide from the people.”
