Disbarred Chinese Lawyers File Criminal Complaint Against Judicial Bureau Official

Posted by Author on May 13, 2010

May 12, 2010, Human Rights in China –

On May 4, 2010, lawyers Liu Wei (刘巍) and Tang Jitian (唐吉田), whose licenses were revoked by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Justice on April 30, filed a criminal complaint with the Beijing Xicheng District Procuratorate against Xiao Lizhu (萧骊珠), head of the Bureau’s Lawyers’ Management Department. The two lawyers claim that Xiao, in revoking their licenses, abused her power and criminally attacked them in retaliation for their activism on behalf of lawyers and in upholding the rule of law since 2008. Specifically, they allege that Xiao retaliated against them because they had previously called for direct elections of officials in the Beijing Lawyers Association (BLA), and filed a criminal complaint accusing Wu Yuhua (吴玉华) – then head of the Bureau – Xiao Lizhu, and other Bureau officials, of extorting exceptionally high annual license renewal fees from lawyers.

Tang and Liu claim that, based upon the “Rules for Standards on the People’s Procuratorate Directly Accepting, Filing, and Investigating a Case” (《关于人民检察院直接受理立案侦查案件立案标准的规定》), the Procuratorate must consider their complaint. Having been unable to work for 12 months, the two lawyers claim that they have sustained a loss of 600,000 yuan [about $87,800], and the provisions call for investigation into any case that involves a loss of above 200,000 yuan [about $29,200].
