Short Summary
According to HRCIC (7 December 15), CLB (7 December 15; 11 December 15), and Front Line Defenders (8 December 15), on or around December 3, 2015, public security officials in Guangzhou municipality, Guangdong province, took into custody Peng Jiayong, director of the Laborer Mutual Aid Group, a Guangdong labor rights NGO. Sources did not report on what charges authorities held Peng, but on December 11, officials at the Guangzhou No. 1 PSB Detention Center refused Peng's lawyer's request to meet with him (RFA 14 December 15). Authorities reportedly released on bail Peng on or around January 9, 2016 (RFA, 11 January 16). Peng’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 people had been detained in the crackdown, including Zeng Feiyang, Zhu Xiaomei, He Xiaobo, and Deng Xiaoming. In April 2015, a group of unidentified men abducted and beat Peng, reportedly in connection with his worker rights advocacy (RDN, 4 April 15).
