Short Summary
According to Human Rights Campaign in China (HRCIC, 7 September 17; 29 September 17), Canyu Net (9 October 17), CRLW (5 September 18), and RFA (30 March 18), on September 1, 2017, public security officials from Zhuhai municipality, Guangdong province, took Zhen Jianghua into custody, and initially held him at the Zhuhai No. 1 PSB Detention Center, denying access to counsel. Authorities then detained Zhen under "residential surveillance at a designated location" for 6 months, and arrested him on March 30, 2018, on the charge of "inciting subversion of state power." The procuratorate posted and later removed an online notice saying that the Zhuhai Intermediate People's Court tried Zhen on August 10, 2018, but neither Zhen's family nor lawyers received notice. On December 28, 2018, the same court sentenced Zhen to 2 years' imprisonment on the "incitement" charge (RDN, 29 December 18). His whereabouts remained unknown. Zhen is executive director of HRCIC, which reports on cases involving rights advocacy and provides aid for people who are involved in or have reported on these cases. Beginning in June 2016, authorities detained other founders and editors of human rights monitoring websites, including Lu Yuyu, Liu Feiyue, Huang Qi, and Ding Lingjie.
