Short Summary
According to HRCIC (10 November 17), VOA (16 November 17), RDN (11 December 17), and RFA (16 November 17; 15 March 18), on October 9, 2017, public security officials from the Heping branch of the Shenyang Municipal Public Security Bureau in Liaoning province took lawyer Li Yuhan into custody, holding her at the Shenyang No. 1 PSB Detention Center. On November 15, authorities arrested Li for "picking quarrels and provoking trouble" and later added the charge of "fraud." At the age of 60, Li suffers from various health conditions including heart disease, hypertension, and hyperthyroidism. Staff at the detention center reportedly instructed other inmates to urinate on her food, denied her hot water for shower, denied her medical treatment, and threatened that they would beat her to death. In March 2018, Li went on a hunger strike to protest mistreatment, which prompted detention center officials to force-feed her. Li told her lawyer that people who apprehended her roughed her up and handcuffed her for a long time. Previously, Li represented lawyer Wang Yu, whom authorities detained in a crackdown on human rights legal professionals that began in mid-2015.
