Short Summary
According to HRCIC (7 December 15), CLB (7 December 15; 11 December 15), and Front Line Defenders (8 December 15), on December 3, 2015, public security officials in Guangzhou municipality, Guangdong province, took into custody Deng Xiaoming, a labor rights advocate and staff member of the Haige Labor Services Center, a Guangzhou-based labor NGO. Authorities reportedly held Deng at the Guangzhou No. 1 PSB Detention Center, but sources did not report on what charges. Deng’s detention was reportedly part of a crackdown by Chinese authorities on labor rights advocates and independent labor organizations in Guangdong beginning in December 2015. As of January 9, at least 7 labor activists had been detained, including Zeng Feiyang, Zhu Xiaomei, He Xiaobo, and Peng Jiayong (RFA, 7 December 15). Detention center authorities reportedly prevented Deng’s lawyer from meeting with him, saying that Deng was suspected of endangering state security (HRCIC, 9 December 15). Authorities reportedly released Deng on bail on January 9, 2016 (RFA, 11 January 16).
