Short Summary
According to China Change (23 July 15) and CHRD (29 July 15), on July 10, 2015, Wang Quanzhang, a lawyer at Beijing's Fengrui Law Firm, disappeared amid a crackdown on rights lawyers and advocates. Xinhua (11 July 15) reported public security officials criminally detained Wang along with Fengrui colleagues including Zhou Shifeng and Wang Yu. In September, Hexi PSB officials in Tianjin municipality told Wang’s lawyer he was under "residential surveillance at a designated location" believed to be in Tianjin (RFA, 10 September 15). RDN (12 January 16) reported authorities arrested Wang on suspicion of "subverting state power" on January 8, 2016, and held him at the Tianjin No. 2 PSB Detention Center in Xiqing district. On February 14, 2017, the Tianjin No. 2 People's Procuratorate indicted Wang on the charge of "subversion of state power" (RDN, 15 February 17). CRLW (1 August 17) reported authorities transferred Wang to the Tianjin No. 1 PSB Detention Center on an unknown date prior to July 31, 2017. Wang previously defended several high-profile rights defense cases; in June 2015, court police in Shandong province beat Wang as he was defending Falun Gong practitioners (HRW, 25 June 15).
