Short Summary
According to CHRD (30 October 14) and RDN (28 October 14, 4 December 14, 21 April 16, 27 February 17), public security officers in Foshan municipality, Guangdong province summoned activist Su Changlan to the Guicheng Police Station in Nanhai district on October 27, 2014, on suspicion of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble.” On October 28, authorities criminally detained Su on suspicion of “inciting subversion of state power,” formally arresting her on the same charge on December 3, 2014. The Foshan PSB transferred Su's case on May 3, 2015, to the Foshan procuratorate for indictment, but her case was returned to public security officials for supplementary investigation twice, on June 18 and August 31 (Boxun, 31 August 15). The Foshan procuratorate indicted Su on November 12 (indictment via HRCIC, 19 April 16). The Foshan Intermediate People’s Court tried Su on April 21, 2016. The court deferred its verdict 4 times before sentencing her on March 31, 2017, to 3 years in prison and 3 years’ deprivation of political rights (HKFP, 31 March 17). According to CHRD, Su actively supported the 2014 pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. Frontline Defenders (3 November 14) described Su as a prominent women’s rights activist who also had been involved in other human rights advocacy.
