Urgent Action Update: Forcibly Returned Activist At Greater Torture Risk (China: UA 259.15)


Without any notification to his family, Dong Guangping has been moved to a new detention centre. Held incommunicado without trial since his forced return from Thailand in 2015, there is even greater concern following his relocation that any trial would be unfair and he is at risk of torture.

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

  • Ensure that Dong Guangping is released, or [charged promptly and] tried without further undue delay in line with international fair trial standards and not for the peaceful exercise of his human rights;
  • Ensure that while in detention Dong Guangping is not subjected to torture or other ill-treatment, has regular, unrestricted access to his family, lawyers of his choice, and medical care on request or as necessary;
  • Cease requesting other countries to return individuals to China in violation of international law.
