Short Summary
According to CHRD (13 July 15; 13 July 15) and Reuters (13 July 15), on July 9, 2015, public security officials in Beijing municipality took into custody lawyer Wang Yu. On or around the same day, authorities also took into custody Wang’s husband, lawyer Bao Longjun. Wang worked at the Beijing Fengrui Law Firm and had represented several high-profile legal cases, including Uyghur scholar Ilham Tohti and activist Wu Gan. On July 10, authorities detained 4 of Wang’s Fengrui colleagues, including Zhou Shifeng, Wang Quanzhang, and Huang Liqun. On August 25, Bao’s lawyers reported they were told by authorities at the Hexi District PSB Detention Center in Tianjin municipality that they had placed Bao under “residential surveillance at a designated location” on suspicion of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” and “inciting subversion of state power” (RDN, 25 August 15). Authorities arrested Bao on January 8, 2016, on suspicion of "inciting subversion of state power" and held him at the Tianjin No. 2 PSB Detention Center in Xiqing district (RDN, 13 January 16). RFA (8 August 16) reported Wang Yu said authorities released Bao on bail around late July or early August, but that their whereabouts were not known. CRLW (23 July 17) reported that Bao's bail was lifted in July 2017.
