Withdrawal of lawsuit in Wuyishan incident of Nongfu mountain spring: the “luoshengmen” of forest protection may come from the dispute of interests

In January 2020, reporter Qiang Wen reported the event of “deforestation and water intake” in Nongfu mountain spring in many media. At that time, a reporter from China business daily explored the source on the spot. Local villagers said that the damaged area reported by the informer had been formed before the construction of Nongfu spring, and it was not that Nongfu spring was directly damaged. The informant Qiang Wen, the daughter of the legal representative of Wuyishan daanyuan ecotourism Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “daanyuan tourism company”), also led the cause of the incident to the dispute of interests. In February, Nongfu Shanquan sued Qiang Wen, da’anyuan eco-tourism company and Shanghai newspaper to the court, asking them to delete the contents of the report, compensate 5.12 million yuan for reputation loss and make a public apology. On the morning of November 3, the reporter learned from the defendant of the above-mentioned case that Nongfu Shanquan had applied to Hangzhou Internet court for withdrawal on October 28. According to Sha Lixing, a lawyer from Beijing Jingshi law firm, although Nongfu Shanquan withdraws the lawsuit and there is no final court judgment, if the deforestation of Nongfu mountain spring is true, it violates the forest law of the people’s Republic of China and needs to be punished according to law; if Nongfu mountain spring does not destroy the forest for water, then Qiang Wen and other people who report Nongfu Shanquan on the Internet are suspected Infringement of the reputation right of civil subject. < p > < p > in January 2020, whistleblower Qiang Wen reported in microblog and many media that Nongfu mountain spring destroyed local trees and vegetation when building water intake in daanyuan village at the foot of Wuyishan National Park, and part of the construction area had been within the scope of Wuyishan National Park, causing ecological environment damage. < / P > < p > since January 10, various kinds of news about the destruction of forests by Nongfu spring construction began to spread on the Internet. Among them, the photos with thick wooden piers piled up and a video of a excavator suspected of Nongfu spring digging overnight have been most widely circulated, which makes the public suspect that Nongfu spring is cutting down and destroying the forest on a large scale. According to Qiang Wen, the project of Nongfu mountain spring has been involved in the National Park. < p > < p > on January 15, Nongfu spring issued an official statement, saying that the informant Qiang deliberately created the false image of Nongfu spring destroying precious trees. He took the bottle of Nongfu spring and put it under the felled trees to convey to the public the impression that Nongfu spring had cut down trees in the forest. The whistleblower deliberately released a picture that was not in the National Park to mislead the media and the public and guide public opinion to the direction of “Nongfu mountain spring destroying the trees in the National Park”. This is obviously a deliberate misleading behavior. < / P > < p > after the incident, the reporter went to Wuyishan National Park on January 15 to learn about the situation. For some pictures of felling trees circulated on the Internet, local villagers told reporters that the felled trees were the woodland of the village, not by the Construction Party of Nongfu mountain spring. The villagers have been cutting down trees for many years, and there is nothing wrong with it. In addition, on October 21, 2019, the company signed an agreement with daanyuan villagers in Da’an village. According to the agreement, villagers will not cut down trees in the water source area, while Nongfu spring will give 200000 yuan of water every year Economic compensation for source protection. The reporter found one of the places where the photos circulated on the Internet. The shooting place was not within the scope of the National Park, but belonged to the woodland and grassland of the local administrative village. < / P > < p > Disclaimer: the purpose of this article reprinted by china.com finance and economics is to convey more information and does not represent the views and positions of the website.
