The Law Society joined 18 organisations and individuals to co-sign a letter to Chinese authorities challenging the revocation of the license to practice of human rights lawyer Li Jinxing.


Li is a renowned lawyer taking up cases of wrongful convictions and representing vulnerable groups in China. His license was revoked on 6 August 2019 after he had published posts on social media platform Weibo. The Chinese authorities deemed these posts to be slandering the Justice Bureau and provoking discontentment against the Party.
