The Law Society sent a joint letter to Chinese authorities on the situation of  lawyer Jiang Tianyong. This lawyer was convicted in August 2017 on charges of “inciting subversion of state power”. Prior to his release scheduled for February 2019, the Law Society and others call on the Chinese authorities to respect Jiang Tianyong’s right to return to his home or leave the country freely, as well as cease harassment and surveillance of him, his family and his colleagues.


The letter can be found on the right hand-side of this webpage.
