Dong Guangping’s court hearing scheduled for April 2017 has been cancelled by authorities with no reason provided. Charged with “subverting state power” and “crossing the national border illegally”, Dong Guangping has been held incommunicado since his forced return from Thailand in 2015. He is at risk of torture and unfair trial.

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

  • Ensure that Dong Guangping is tried 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 return individuals to China in violation of international law.
