「709大抓捕」四周年聯署聲明

「709大抓捕」今年已經踏入第四周年。最後一位被秘密關押的王全璋律師於今年1月經秘密審訊被判刑四年半。其家屬直到6月28日才首次獲准探監,妻子李文足非常擔心王全璋疑因酷刑虐待損及身心健全。王全璋的辯護律師余文生至今已被拘押逾500天,5月9日秘密審訊後正等候判決;王宇的辯護律師李昱函仍處於審前羈押,其庭審被多次延後。

「709大抓捕」有超過321名受害者,其中部份遭酷刑逼迫「認罪」,因此健康及精神狀況受到嚴重傷害。他們的家人亦不斷被騷擾、迫遷、監控,甚至孩子上學的權利都被剝奪。

中國人權律師不斷受到不同形式的非法打壓。致力民主運動的唐荊陵律師及積極推動709家屬維權的江天勇律師雖然名義上已刑滿釋放,但仍被國保24小時監視,剝奪行動自由及自主就醫權利。王宇律師年初參與北京美國大使館的活動,在門外被公安強行帶走。高智晟律師再度被失蹤已達兩年。

四年來,被「709大抓捕」影響的律師亦遭受各種行政打壓。中國的律師和律師事務所每一年都要通過年檢才能更新執照,而曾代理政治敏感案件的律師及律所往往會被吊銷或註銷牌照,因此被剝奪執業權者包括劉正清律師和程海律師。北京鋒銳律師事務所、悟天律師事務所和廣西百舉鳴律師事務所被註銷解散。由2017年9月至2019年1月,超過26名維權律師及律師事務所因行使集會、結社、言論自由及履行律師職責而被吊銷、註銷或暫停執業證。

由此可見,「709大抓捕」雖過去四年,中國政府對人權律師的打壓並沒有停止,只是換了方式。

這是最黑暗的時刻,但我們已找到希望:人權律師是在黑暗中點亮光明的鬥士。2019年是中國人權律師節三周年,此時刻用以表揚在中共打壓之下依然無懼地堅持捍衛人權的律師。縱使中國政府能將人權律師一時關入牢籠,但他們的家人和支持者已經接下火炬,繼續堅持追求公義的抗爭。今年,香港政府不顧中國法治缺失,企圖修訂《逃犯條例》,容許任何人從香港被移交中國受審,身陷任意拘押、不公正審訊及不人道待遇之危險。這種倒行逆施,也面臨港人堅決抵制。

我們強烈譴責中國政府以「依法治國」以名,實際上以法律作為打壓而非保護人民的工具,無情打壓爭取自由、公義及法治的人士。我們要求:

1. 立即釋放被拘禁的人權律師;
2. 保障所有刑滿出獄的律師得到真正自由;
3. 撤銷所有因政治因素吊銷及註銷律師和律所牌照的決定;
4. 立即停止對人權律師的一切騷擾、恐嚇和暴力攻擊;
5. 停止對人權律師家屬的一切騷擾及打壓。

4th Anniversary of the 709 Crackdown

This year marks the fourth year since the 709 Crackdown, during which Lawyer Wang Quanzhang, who has been secretly detained and tried, has been sentenced to four and a half years in jail this January. It was not until 28th June 2019 did his family manage to visit him for the first time with permission, his wife Li Wenzu has since expressed serious concern for his health and well-being as a result of ill-treatment; Lawyer Yu Wensheng, the defence lawyer of Wang Quanzhang, has been under arbitrary detention for more than 500 days, and is awaiting sentencing after being secretly tried on 9th May 2019; Lawyer Li Yuhan – the defence lawyer of Wang Yu – is currently still in custody awaiting trial, which has been delayed multiple times.

No less than 321 persons have fallen victim to the 709 Crackdown, some of which have been subjected to torture and suffer from deteriorating health in the process of being forced to confess to their “crimes”. Their families have been harassed, being evicted from their homes, surveilled and their children deprived of their right to education.

China human rights lawyers have experienced diverse forms of illegal suppression. Lawyer Tang Jingling – who has long supported pro-democracy movements – and Lawyer Jiang Tianyong – who has actively protected the rights of 709 lawyers’ families – have technically already finished their time in prison; however, they are still under the surveillance of public security agents 24 hours a day, being deprived of their right of autonomy in terms of healthcare and their mobility rights; Lawyer Wang Yu has been forcefully removed by police while on her way to attend an activity at the American Embassy in Beijing; Lawyer Gao Zhisheng has already been subjected to two years of enforced disappearance.

In the past four years, lawyers implicated by the 709 Crackdown have also faced administrative penalties as a form of suppression. Lawyers and law firms in China are subjected to annual “inspections”, and lawyers who have worked on politically sensitive cases tend to have their licenses revoked or suspended, victims include Lawyers Liu Zhengqing and Chenghai. Law firms which accepted to represent in such cases, such as Beijing’s Fengrui Law Firm, Wutian Law Firm, and Guangxi’s Baijuming Law Firm, had their licenses revoked and were forced to disband. From September 2017 to January 2019, more than 26 human rights lawyers and law firms have had their licenses revoked, invalidated or suspended due to them exercising their rights to freedom of assembly, of association, and of speech.

Evidently, despite the Crackdown having taken place four years ago, the Chinese government’s suppression against human rights lawyers has not stopped, but has instead evolved to another form.

Even in this darkest of times, we still manage to find hope – and human rights lawyers are the brave souls carrying the torches of light. In 2019, we also witness the third anniversary of the China Human Rights Lawyers’ Day. The courage and persistence of these lawyers who are facing challenges and suppressions imposed by the State in order to silence them are recognized and celebrated. The Chinese government may temporarily lock these brave lawyers behind bars, but their families and supporters keep the torch burning as they persist in their fight for justice. This year, the Hong Kong government disregarded China’s lack of rule of law, as it proposed amendments to Hong Kong’s extradition law, which would allow any individual to be extradited from Hong Kong to Mainland China for trial, rendering anyone vulnerable to arbitrary detention, unfair trial and inhumane treatment. Hong Kong people have been firmly resisting the draconian Bill.

We strongly condemn the Chinese Government ’s relentless and ruthless suppression against people in pursuit of freedom of speech, justice and rule of law in the name of “ruling the country according to law.” We demand:

1.That human rights lawyers who are still incarcerated to be released immediately;
2. That genuine freedom be guaranteed for lawyers who have already completed their time in prison;
3. That decisions to revoke and invalidate lawyers’ licenses on the basis of state retaliation be withdrawn;
4. That all methods to intimidate and repress human rights lawyers be stopped, be it outright violence or discrete coercion;
5. That all forms of harassment and suppression against families of human rights lawyers be stopped.

2019.3.22 聯署聲明及遊行【立即釋放酒案四人 停止打壓悼念「六四」人士】

 

【聯署聲明】

立即釋放酒案四人 停止打壓悼念「六四」人士

2019年3月22日

「六四」30周年臨近,我們沒有忘記當年學生和市民的付出和犧牲,也沒有忘記過去30年因堅持說出真相、悼念和爭取平反的仁人志士。

2016年,四川符海陸、張雋勇、羅富譽和陳兵製作了一款白酒,取名「銘記八酒六四」。他們於5月底透過互聯網銷售這枝自家製白酒,定價每兩瓶89.64元人民幣。4 人後遭正式逮捕、起訴,罪名為涉嫌「煽動顛覆國家政權罪」,3年過去,一直被羈押於看守所,沒能見家人一面。「酒案」多名代理律師近日到看守所會見當事人時,竟被告知已被解除代理,不予會見。但律師及家人均無法確認解除代理的真偽,也一直未有收到經4人簽署的解除代理通知。此外,亦有傳官方多次逼4人認罪。

當年第一個被抓的符海陸原定今天(3月22日)早上10時半於成都中院九號法庭開庭,但官派律師其後又告知家屬取消開庭。另外3人(羅富譽、張雋勇、陳兵)一直未有開庭消息。當局在未有審判下長期羈押「酒案」4君子的行為既無理亦違反基本人權,而不讓律師會見,強行解除律師委託更是完全違法。

悼念「六四」無罪,我們強烈抗議中共無理拘押「酒案」4人及其他悼念人士。多年來,國內不斷有行動者在被羈押判刑的風險下堅持悼念「六四」,除了「酒案」4君子外,仍在囚的還包括為「六四」死難學生掃墓及登廣告向「天安門母親」致敬的陳雲飛、在大街掛上「平反八九六四,結束一黨專政」等標語的興華會曾國凡等,以及去年舉辦「64禱告日」的王怡牧師及秋雨教眾等。更不應忘記多年來堅持抗爭的「天安門母親」。

悼念死者無罪,有罪的是下令屠殺手無寸鐵人民的人;銘記歷史無罪,有罪的是顛倒是非的人。「酒案」4君子紀念「六四」的行動是和平、非暴力,誣陷莫須有的「顛覆國家政權罪」,是當權者對真相的恐懼,人民共和國名存實亡。

我們要求中國政府:
一. 立即釋放符海陸、羅富譽、張雋勇和陳兵等因紀念「六四」被捕人士;
二. 停止濫用程序,無限期拖延審訊;
三. 停止阻撓律師會見;
四. 允許家屬探望待審政治犯;
五. 開放禁區,讓民眾自由討論及悼念「六四」。
六. 徹查「六四」真相,追究屠殺責任。

2019.3.18 回應中國對普遍定期審議工作組報告的回覆記者招待會 Press Conference on China’s responses on UPR Working Group Report

新聞稿 —— 供即時發放

(18-3-2019 – 香港)
中國維權律師關注組(「關注組」)今日聯同香港市民支援愛國民主運動聯合會(「支聯會」)、香港職工會聯盟(「職工盟」)、香港天主教正義和平委員會(「正委」)召開記者會,回應中國對普遍定期審議工作組報告的回覆。

身兼關注組和支聯會主席的何俊仁表示,中國近年侵害人權的案件接二連三,由多次大規模抓捕異見人士,如2015年的「709大抓捕」和至今對維權律師的行政打壓、2018年佳士工人案及隨之對學生和勞權人士的刑拘、拆十字架和取締宗教團體,以及最不人道的新疆維吾爾族再教育營。但外交部副部長樂玉成,日前在聯合國會議上竟說:「在會上提到的人權個案根本不是人權問題,而是中國司法主權獨立及公正的問題。」可見中國巧言令色,企圖為其侵害人權的暴力手段說項。因此,堅守真相的人就要戮破官方的詭辯說法。

關注組劉慧卿指中國對於各國要求改善人權狀況的回應,是既狡猾又離譜。在346條建議中,雖然中國只拒絕了62條建議,但當中絕大部份都與宗教自由、言論自由、法制改革、改善人權捍衛者的待遇有關。而要求廢除「指定居所監視居住」、重新定義「顛覆國家」、釋放在囚人權捍衛者等,都被中國拒絕。在接受的部份建議中,卻見中國混淆視聽,如要求保障律師在辯護時不受威脅、暴力或者干預、保障人權捍衛者能有表達和結社自由、確保有公平審訊等,中國都聲稱會接受建議,並已經實施相關措施。但有案例顯示,官方會利用律師的辯護詞以言入罪,如劉正清律師。我們要求釋放所有在囚維權律師和維權人士,並停止對維權律師的行政打壓。

支聯會蔡耀昌強烈譴責中國政府無視過往聯合國普遍定期審議的建議,尤其是中國20年來仍未批准早於1998年簽妥的《公民權利和政治權利國際公約》,未能履行保障人權的國際責任。中國政府也沒有接受各國要求釋放在囚人權捍衛者的建議。支聯會關注在囚人權捍衛者的狀態、待遇和身體狀況,包括秦永敏、劉賢斌、胡石根、陳西和黃琦等。今年是「六四」屠殺30周年,支聯會重申追究中國政府屠殺責任,並要求平反八九民運。

關於中國政府對勞工和勞權人士的持續打壓,職工盟林祖明表示關注中共廣泛打壓勞工維權人士,包括新一輪對深圳勞工NGO職員的刑拘。被打壓的勞權人士大多被拒絕委任律師,顯示其基本公民權利被剝奪。同時,中共動輒以「聚眾擾亂社會秩序」等定義模糊的罪名打壓推動各種議題的運動者,並強迫他們拍攝認罪視頻,儼如未審先判,做法完全沒有法治基礎。對勞工維權人士來說,此情況比過往任何時候更嚴峻。

對於中國政府任意侵犯宗教自由,正委陳麗娜指不認同中國遞交予聯合國人權理事會的報告( A/HRC/40/6)的第13段有關宗教自由部份,中國的宗教自由並沒有得到保障。中國近年強拆十字架,強迫安裝攝錄裝置監控,限制國內不同宗教。亦有主教、神父被強逼失蹤和遭受軟禁,甚至無故被殺或下落不明。中國政府為逐漸取締宗教團體,也禁止學生、青少年參加宗教活動。新修訂的《宗教事務條例》也令基督教家庭教會及天主教「地下」教會團體,因非法從事宗教活動被查封。故此,要求允許信徒組織教會、停止無理強拆十字架及一切監控、廢除新修訂的《宗教事務條例》等。

For immediate release:

(2019-3-18 – Hong Kong) China Human Rights Lawyers Concern Group (CHRLCG) , the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China (hereafter “the Hong Kong Alliance”), Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions(HKCTU), Justice and Peace Commission of the Hong Kong Catholic Diocese(HKJP Commission) held a press conference today to respond to China’s views on UPR Working Group Report.

“A number of human rights crisis broke out one after another over the recent years, including arrest of human rights defenders in a massive scale, for example, the 709 crackdown in 2015 and the recent administrative suppression on human rights lawyers, criminal detention of the workers and student supporters in the Jasic Incident in 2018, cross demolition and the ban the religious groups, and the inhumane re-education camps in Xinjiang,” says Albert Ho Chun-yun, the chairperson of both CHRLCG and the Hong Kong alliance.

“On the contrary, Le Yucheng, the Vice Minister of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China, told us in the Human Rights Council on 15 March that those human rights cases reported in UN UPR hearing are not human rights issues, but are issues related to China’s judicial sovereignty and fairness. This shows China’s attempt to defend their brutal measures in violating human rights principles. Therefore, those who persists in the truth should debunk Chinese official’s narrative,” Ho adds.

CHRLCG representative Emily Lau Wai-hing criticizes China’s crafty and ridiculous responses of China to the UPR report. Among the 346 recommendations commented by UN member states, though China has rejected 62 recommendations, of which most are related to religious freedom, freedom of speech and expression, legal reform, and improvement of the treatments to human rights defenders. China rejected all the recommendations on repeal of“residential surveillance at a designated location”, amendment to the definition of subversion, and the release of those imprisoned human rights defenders etc.

Emily comments, “among those recommendations accepted, China has adopted distorted interpretations of those recommendations, for instance, to guarantee the protection of lawyers against any form of harassment, violence or attempts to impede or interfere with the defence of their clients; to guarantee that human rights defenders can exercise their freedom of expression and peaceful association and to guarantee fair trials. China claimed they accepted all of the above recommendations, which are already implemented. But some cases show that authorities will use the defense statement as an evidence to charge the lawyer, such as lawyer Liu Zhengqing. We urge China to release all the detained or imprisoned human rights lawyers and activists, and stop harassing human rights lawyers by administrative suppression.”

Tsoi Yiu Cheong, the representatives of the Hong Kong Alliance, strongly condemn the Chinese government’s continuing disregard of the recommendations of last UPR exercise, particularly the denial of the Chinese government on ratifying the ICCPR for 20 years after signing it. It is totally unacceptable, which amounts to the denial of fulfilment of the international responsibility of protecting basic human rights to the people of China. The Chinese Government did not accept the recommendations made by various countries to release human rights defenders neither. Hong Kong Alliance are concerned about the situation and treatment of imprisoned human rights defenders, including Qin Yongmin, Liu Xianbin, Hu Shigen, Chen Xi and Huang Qi. Since 2019 is the 30th anniversary of the June 4th Tiananmen Massacre, Hong Kong Alliance demands the accountability of the June 4th massacre and restoration of justice in the movement.

Concerning the Chinese government’s continuous suppression on the workers and labour activists, Ming Lam, the representative of HKCTU, expresses their concern over the suppression and victims concerned, including criminal detention to the labour NGO staff in Shenzhen. Most of the suppressed workers and activists are being refused to the rights of legal counsels of their own choosing lawyers with their basic civil rights being exploited. Also, the CPC suppresses activists by charging them with “gathering crowds to disrupt public order”, and the victims are forced to plead guilty in video recording. These practices apparently violate the principles of law. For the workers and activists, this is the worst situation ever.

Regarding the violation of religious freedom in China, Lina Chan, the representative of the HKJP Commission disagrees with the National Report of China( A/HRC/40/6) about freedom of religious belief in para. 13, freedom of religion is not under protection in China. The authorities have forced to demolish the Crosses, install surveillance devices inside and outside religious venues in order to constrained different religion. Also, Church members are under enforced disappearance, or even being killed. The Chinese government banned students from joining Christian Churches or engaging in religious activities. Due to the newly revised Regulations on Religious Affairs (RRA), many house churches and underground Catholic communities have faced the crisis of forced closure of the meeting place by the authorities. In conclusion, we urge the Chinese government to allow religious practitioners to organize and operate in accordance with their own religious doctrines and principles, stop unreasonable and forcible demolition of the Crosses and all forms of surveillance, and to abolish the newly revised RRA etc..

**發起團體:中國維權律師關注組、臺灣聲援中國人權律師網絡

【要求無罪釋放王全璋律師之聲明】
(English version below)

2019年1月28日,天津市第二中級人民法院開庭,以「顛覆國家政權」罪,判處著名中國維權律師王全璋入獄4年零6個月,剝奪政治權利5年。我們強烈譴責天津市第二中級人民法院(天津二院)對王全璋律師一案所作出的有罪判決及刑罰。

王全璋在被捕前於鋒銳律師事務所執業,過去一直代理敏感人權案件,如法輪功案、土地維權案等。自2015年8月3日被警方帶走以來,至今一直未能會見家人或家屬委任的辯護律師,並長期處於秘密羈押狀態,期間有消息指他遭到酷刑及不人道對待。2016年1月,他被控「顛覆國家政權」,及後案件於2018年12月26日審理。天津二院稱王全璋案「因涉及國家秘密」而不公開庭審。

我們認為中國政府對王全璋進行長期秘密羈押,不但侵犯人權,更違反諸如《中華人民共和國憲法》(《憲法》)、《中華人民共和國刑事訴訟法》(《刑訴法》)、《公民與政治權利國際公約》(《公約》)等多條法律和國際公約。 繼續閱讀 2019.01.28【要求無罪釋放王全璋律師之聲明】
