1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Release Gui Minhai and drop the charges against him unless there is sufficient credible and admissible evidence that he has committed an internationally recognized offence and is granted a fair trial in line with international standards;
  • Grant Gui Minhai prompt, regular and unrestricted access to medical care on request or as necessary;
  • Ensure that Gui Minhai has unrestricted access to consular officials, a lawyer of his choice and his family.
