【博闻社】中国于去(2015)年7月9日,对人权律师、人权运动及异议人士进行大规模逮捕行动,引举世震惊。其中北京锋锐事务所4名律师遭控“颠覆国家政权罪”,今年8月2日起于天津市第二中级人民法院进行“特定媒体镜头前的公开审理”,在家人未旁听下、多人照稿唸认罪声明,并遭判刑。对此,美国国务院媒体关系办公室主任杜鲁道(Elizabeth Trudeau)8日发表声明呼吁中国释放遭监禁或拘留的律师、维权人士及已遭判刑者,并立即撤案,全文及原文如下:

中国法院上周将著名人权律师、锋锐律师事务所主任周世锋及维权人士胡石根,翟岩民及勾洪国判以明显具有政治动机的“颠覆国家政权”罪。

数十位中国律师及维权人士于去(2015)年7月9日前后遭羁押,李和平等人仍于审前羁押,且不得与亲属见面或自己选择法律顾问。

北京此举破坏中国尊重法治的司法体系发展,我们敦促中国当局释放遭监禁或拘留的律师、维权人士及已遭判刑者。我们呼吁中国当局立即撤案,并停止限制维权人士行运动及专业活动之自由。

Last week, a Chinese court convicted prominent human rights attorney Zhou Shifeng, director of the Fengrui law firm, and activists Hu Shigen, Zhai Yanmin, and Gou Hongguo of the apparently politically motivated charge of “subversion of state power.” More than a dozen other attorneys and activists detained on and around July 9, 2015, including Li Heping, remain in pretrial detention without access to their families or to legal counsel of their own choosing.

This campaign undermines China’s development of a judicial system that respects the rule of law. We urge Chinese authorities to release the lawyers and rights defenders who are imprisoned or in detention, including those already sentenced. We call for an immediate end to the cases brought against them and to restrictions on their freedom of movement and professional activities.
