China: 3 Rights Activists Arrested for Posting Articles Alleging Official Misconduct

Posted by Author on August 4, 2009

Chinese Human Rights Defenders, August 4, 2009-

CHRD has learned that three veteran human rights activists from Fujian — Fan Yanqiong (范燕琼), Wu Huaying (吴华英) and You Jingyou (游精佑, known online as He Suoge [赫索格]) — have been formally arrested for “making false charges” (诬告陷害). It is believed that the three are being detained for posting articles online alleging official misconduct and attempts to cover up criminal acts surrounding the death of Yan Xiaoling (严晓玲), a young woman from Minqing County, Fujian Province.

The veteran activists were originally charged with libel, which carries a maximum sentence of three years. If convicted of making false charges, they could face up to ten years in prison.  Fellow activists believe that the charges against the three were changed only for the purpose of punishing them more severely.

The arrest warrants for the three activists, who were originally detained between June 26 and July 5, were issued on July 31. They are now being held in Fuzhou City No.2 Detention Center. A total of eight activists and netizens were taken into custody for their roles in investigating Yan’s death and posting these articles, but only Fan,    Wu, and You are still detained and have been formally charged.

CHRD also learned that both Fan and Wu were mistreated when they were first taken into custody. Fan was not allowed to use the restroom and as a result had to defecate on herself. Fan is also ill with serious kidney and heart diseases. Wu was handcuffed to a chair in an uncomfortable position and restrained, unable to move, for an interrogation which lasted 30 hours. …… (more details from Chinese Human Rights Defenders)
