Short Summary
According to RDN (5 December 15), China Labour Bulletin (7 December 15; 11 December 15), and the New York Times (5 December 15), on December 3, 2015, police from the Panyu district branch of the Guangzhou municipal public security bureau in Guangdong province took into custody Zeng Feiyang, labor advocate and director of the Panyu Workers’ Services Center, a Guangzhou labor rights NGO. Officials criminally detained Zeng the next day on suspicion of “gathering a crowd to disrupt social order” and held him at the Guangzhou No. 1 PSB Detention Center in Baiyun district, Guangzhou. In January 2016, authorities arrested Zeng for "gathering a crowd to disrupt social order" (RDN, 8 January 16; RFA, 11 January 16). On September 26, the Panyu District People’s Court tried Zeng and sentenced him to 3 years in prison, suspended for 4 years (RFA, 26 September 16). Zeng’s detention was reportedly connected to a crackdown by Chinese authorities on labor rights advocates in Guangdong in December 2015. As of January 9, at least 7 people had been detained in the crackdown, including Zhu Xiaomei, He Xiaobo, Deng Xiaoming, and Peng Jiayong. Zeng previously suffered harassment reportedly due to his advocacy work (Economist, 12 April 14; Reuters, 21 January 15).
