Short Summary
According to VOA (18 July 14); CHRD (23 May 13, 19 April 13, 8 April, 14, 18 April 13); HRW (9 June 13); Seeing Red in China (18 April 13); and the indictment (13 December 13), via China Change, PSB officers in Beijing criminally detained lawyer Ding Jiaxi on April 18, 2013, on suspicion of "illegal assembly," and arrested him on May 24. The procuratorate returned the case to the PSB for supplemental investigation on November 2 and resubmitted the case to the procuratorate on December 3. Authorities issued the indictment on December 6, for the different charge of "gathering a crowd to disrupt order in a public place." Officials claim Ding used the "topic of officials disclosing their wealth" to organize, plan, and incite "the gathering of many people in public places," where he "engaged in activities such as displaying banners and distributing leaflets." Authorities held Ding in Beijing No. 3 Detention Center. Ding's trial opened in the Haidian District People's Court in Beijing on January 27, 2014. On April 18, the court sentenced him to three years and six months' imprisonment. On July 18, the No. 1 Beijing Intermediate People's Court upheld Ding's sentence. On October 16, 2016, Ding was released (RDN, 16 October 16).
