Short Summary
According to RDN (17 October 16), RFA (18 October 16, 20 October 16), and HRCIC (8 October 16, 29 October 16), on October 3, 2016, public security officials in Huicheng district, Huizhou municipality, Guangdong province, took into custody Xiao Yuhui, criminally detaining him the next day on suspicion of “credit card fraud” and holding him at the Huizhou PSB Detention Center in Huicheng, in connection with unpaid credit card debt. Authorities reportedly claimed that Xiao’s case “involved national security.” On October 12, authorities formally arrested Xiao on the “fraud” charge, and transferred him to the Boluo County PSB Detention Center. Following Xiao’s detention, over 700 Chinese citizens reportedly initiated a campaign and paid off Xiao’s credit card debt. According to HRCIC (9 June 17) and Rose China (15 August 17), on June 9, 2017, the Huicheng District People’s Court tried and sentenced Xiao to 9 months in prison, suspended for 1 year, and fined him 20,000 yuan. Xiao had been involved in over 100 cases assisting families with issues related to hukou registration and social compensation fees. One rights advocate said that authorities targeted Xiao because he participated in many administrative lawsuits.
