Zhen Jianghua reportedly stood trial over the charge of “inciting subversion of state power” on 10 August. With no access to family and lawyers of his choice, the human rights defender is at risk of torture and unfair trial.

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

  • Immediately and unconditionally release Zhen Jianghua and drop all charges as he is a prisoner of conscience who has been detained solely for exercising his right to freedom of expression
  • Ensure that, pending his release, Zhen Jianghua is protected from torture and other ill-treatment while in detention and that he is allowed, without delay, effective access to lawyers of his choice.
