According to CHRD (30 October 14
) and RDN (28 October 14
), public security officers in Foshan city, 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.” Police later searched her home and confiscated 3 laptop computers. On October 28, authorities criminally detained Su on suspicion of “inciting subversion of state power.” RDN reported (4 December 14
) authorities formally arrested her on the same charge on December 3, 2014. After the Foshan PSB transferred Su's case on May 3, 2015, to the Foshan procuratorate for indictment, 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
) and she was tried on April 21, 2016, by the Foshan Intermediate People's Court, which did not immediately declare a verdict (RDN, 21 April 16
). 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.
