2016.12.23 聲援江天勇律師遊行

2016.12.23【聲援江天勇律師遊行】

中國著名維權律師江天勇曾代理多宗維權案件,如陳光誠案、太石村案。2011年,被秘密逮捕,失蹤2個月期間遭受酷刑。2012年因陳光誠案被國保毆打,致鼓膜穿孔。2014年,因建三江事件被公安打斷8根肋骨。江天勇因其維權工作於2009年被吊銷律師執照,但多年來仍然堅持為弱勢社群提供法律輔導及援助,其工作備受國內外人士尊重,一直繼續以其律師身份尊稱。

江天勇於今年11月21日開始失蹤。這一個月來,其律師及家屬多番要求公安立案調查,但被一直拖延。至12月16日,才有大陸網媒指稱江天勇已被施以強制刑事措施。但所公佈內容有多項不盡實之處,而公佈手法亦有抹黑誹謗之嫌。

就此,中國維權律師關注組、香港市民支援愛國民主運動聯合會、香港天主教正義和平委員會、華人民主書院及社會民主連線,將於明日12月23日下午舉行「聲援江天勇律師遊行」,要求中國政府「公平對待江天勇律師」、「停止媒體審訊」、「停止造謠抹黑」、「確保會見律師的權利」、「確保免受酷刑對待的權利」。

我們強烈要求中國執法當局正式交待事件,包括但不限於清晰說明江天勇律師目前所在,身心安全狀況,其辦案單位及人員所屬,並立即依法安排律師會見,保障江天勇的人身安全及及其獲取律師辯護的基本權利。

Press Invitation

Protest in Support of Human Rights Lawyer Jiang Tianyong

You are cordially invited to cover the following event.

Prominent human rights lawyer in China Jiang Tianyong has taken a number of human rights cases including the Taishi Village recall incident and the case of Chen Guangcheng. In 2011, Jiang was abducted by police, disappeared for two months during which he suffered brutal torture. In 2012, he was beaten by public security officers in the Chen Guangcheng case, resulting in the perforation of his left ear drum. In 2014, he was detained and beaten by police in the Jiansajiang case, getting 8 ribs broken. Jiang was disbarred in 2009 as a result of his human rights work. However, his persistence in providing legal assistance and counseling to the underprivileged has gained him the respect as a rights lawyer both in and out of the country.

Jiang was reported missing since 21 November 2016. The endless efforts of his lawyers and family to file the case and seek help from the public security bureau had been futile. It was until 16 December that the news of Jiang being given compulsory criminal measures was disclosed by an online media in the mainland. The information released therein was however incomplete, unsupported or simply untrue. The way the coverage was made comes close to smearing.

In view of the above, the China Human Rights Lawyers Concern Group (CHRLCG), the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China, New School for Democracy, the Justice & Peace Commission of the H.K. Catholic Diocese as well as the League of Social Democrats will jointly hold a protest tomorrow 23 December in support of lawyer Jiang Tianyong. The Chinese government is called upon to “treat Jiang with justice and fairness”, to “stop the smearing campaign with media trials”, “ensure the basic rights of Jiang on access to lawyers” and “the freedom from torture and cruel treatments”.

We strongly demand for the respective Chinese law enforcing organs to step forth and clarify Jiang’s status, including but not limiting to his whereabouts, his physical and psychological wellbeing. The authorities should also clarify in particular unit and personnel involved in the investigation of Jiang’s case. Jiang’s basic rights to meet with his lawyers and that to have physical and psychological wellbeing protected should also be heeded to in accordance with the law.

Time: 14:30pm
