Short Summary
According to CRLW (1 January 16), RDN (8 September 15; 19 May 18), HRIC (26 September 18), and RFA (8 September 15; 22 June 16; 28 December 17; 11 July 18), on January 9, 2015, police from Qingshan district, Wuhan municipality, Hubei province, detained democracy advocate Qin Yongmin in Wuhan. Around the same time, Wuhan authorities also detained Qin's wife, Zhao Suli. On January 9, authorities ordered Qin to serve 10 days' administrative detention, but did not release him afterward. On August 26, the Wuhan PSB summoned human rights advocate Shi Yulin regarding an investigation into Qin on suspicion of "inciting subversion of state power." In June 2016, Qin's lawyer reported that Qin was held at the Wuhan No. 2 PSB Detention Center. On May 11, 2018, the Wuhan Intermediate People's Court tried Qin, and on July 11, sentenced him to 13 years in prison and 3 years' deprivation of political rights on the charge of "subversion of state power." On September 26, the Hubei High People's Court affirmed the original judgment. Qin founded the banned China Democracy Party, and the non-governmental organization China Human Rights Watch. Qin served 8 years in prison for his participation in the Democracy Wall movement, and 12 years in prison for his role founding the China Democracy Party.
