Is China a law-abiding country? But to get bullied and assaulted by someone taking advantage of their own position in the military, whose job is to protect civilians, not intimidate and harm them, is absolutely outrageous.

A foreign passenger has described how a military officer attacked a female flight attendant on a China Southern Airlines flight, contradicting the findings of the official investigation.

Fang Daguo, a colonel and military director of the militia force department of the Yuexiu district of Guangzhou, pinched the arm of the air attendant and verbally abused her because of a dispute over where he should put his suitcase, the Central African Republic student who was sitting next to the couple told Xinhua news agency over the weekend.

A screenshot shows a photo of Fang Daguo, political commissar for the Yuexiu District Armed Forces Department in the city of Guangzhou, that circulated widely on Sina Corp.’s Weibo microblogging service after Mr. Fang was accused of threatening and assaulting a flight attendant in a dispute over carry-on luggage.


"Fang's wife even scratched her own arm and then blamed the attendant for starting the violence after the dispute," Duoban said, adding the attendant had not retaliated during the dispute.

Fang, who is also a member of the Standing Committee of the Yuexiu District People's Congress, had apparently been drunk before getting onboard, he added.

There was outrage online after the attendant on flight CZ3874 from Hefei to Guangzhou tweeted on her Weibo microblog last Wednesday that Fang beat, insulted and scratched her after being told that his luggage couldn't be put where he wanted.

She posted pictures of bruises and scratches on her arms and neck that she said had been caused by Fang and his wife. Her uniform was also ripped, she said.

However, the district's publicity department issued a statement on Friday saying that Fang had never beaten the attendant and that both parties have reached an agreement.

The armed forces department also denied that the incident took place and said it was impossible that Fang had hit the air attendant.

According to the attendant, who has not been named, the conflict began when she asked Fang and his wife to move their luggage, which was in the middle of the aisle.

But the couple demanded she move some equipment from the luggage rack to make room for their suitcase.

After she explained the equipment could not be moved, Fang hit her on the shoulder with his bag and the insults began.

When Fang saw that the attendant was taking pictures of the scene, he attacked her and ripped her uniform, the attendant said.
Fang's wife shouted: "You would have no job without us," the student witness said. When the attendant walked back to her station, the couple followed and kept on insulting her, he said.

The attendant's experience was retweeted over 30,000 times.

Then, on Friday, she announced that the couple had apologized and thanked other posters for their support.

Commenting on the case on his microblog, Zhang Qihuai, secretary-general of the Aviation Law Committee at the Beijing Lawyers Association said the Civil Aviation Law, should be strengthened to regulate passengers' behavior.

We need to thank the journalists in the Xinhua news angency.
They did the investigations.

We need to thank the foreign citizen from Africa.
He dare to provide his testimony to journliast. All of the rest China's citizens on the same plane refused to publish their names, though dare to provide the details.

We need to denouce local government and local military office in Guangzhou.
Why do they dare to declare a fake investigation for hiding mistakes of its official? Anyone would be penalized for publishing the fake investigation? No, or moving from one position to another?

We need to denouce the safety check system in airport.
How can high-rank officials pass the safety check system after they drank alcohol?
our life is full of sunshine

In communist systems all individuals are the same - theoretically.

Practically all officials are more same than others.
It is indeed very practical that the party is  judge, legislator, head of the army, executor  and  publisher  all in one in China.

Robber verbatim:

"These things are peanuts ... you shouldn't be nutpicking such cases ... the West  ...

That's exactly right. Go chase some more ambulances and pick up some more stories.
These things happen everywhere but are showcased as typical examples of Chinese behavior by
the right wing hate mongers in this forum.

Problems with military personal are far worse in the west.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
