Groups urge Beijing to release rights lawyers

Local | 9 Jul 2019 1:28 pm

About 20 people from several groups marched from the Western Police Station to the Beijing's Liaison Office in Sai Wan this morning, demanding the mainland government to stop the crackdown on human rights lawyers and release Wang Quanzhang, Yu Wensheng and Li Yuhan.

The groups said today is the fourth anniversary of "709 crackdown" – when hundreds of people including lawyers and rights activists were detained in the mainland – and those lawyers have been suffering from various administrative pressures.

The Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China chairman and former lawmaker, Albert Ho Chun-yan, criticized Beijing for suppressing human rights with "white terror."
