Chinese Rights Defense Lawyer Bai Dongping Detained on Charge of Government Subversion

Posted by Author on November 28, 2010

ChinaAid, November 28, 2010 –

BEIJING — An active member of the Petitioners’ Rights Defense Lawyers Association was seized by Beijing police and placed under criminal detention Saturday evening. He was charged with allegedly trying to encourage the subversion of the Chinese government.

Bai Dongping, a new Christian but a longtime political activist whose activism and leadership dates back to Tiananmen Square in 1989, was held at Beijing’s Xicheng District Detention Center. Although police produced no paperwork to authorize apprehending Bai, a document was later sent to his family saying he was being charged with “inciting subversion of state power”.
Bai was just a 27-year-old train attendant in 1989 when he joined the Beijing Workers Autonomous Federation, an illegal union made up of workers who supported the student-led demonstrations.

Bai’s cell phone, is currently in the hands of his wife, Yang Dan (+ 86 136 1115 5064).

Since Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo was named the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Chinese authorities have responded by stepping up pressure on religious believers (especially Christians), political activists, and rights defense lawyers.

Authorities have barred Christians and human rights lawyers from leaving China to attend international conferences and have been harassing other Christians, activists and rights defense lawyers through actions ranging from detentions to sealing the locks on their homes with superglue.

ChinaAid Association calls on the international media to pay attention to this incident, and denounces the authorities in Beijing for continuing to walk down this erroneous path.

Please pray for our new brother in Christ as he is being harassed for his faith.
