Short Summary
According to RFA (29 November 16; 1 December 16; 5 December 16), on November 28, 2016, authorities from Mianyang and Neijiang cities and Chengdu municipality in Sichuan province detained Huang Qi, the founder of rights website 64 Tianwang (64TW). Authorities transferred Huang to the Mianyang PSB Detention Center (RFA, 8 December 16). RDN reported that on December 16, authorities approved his arrest on the charge of "illegally providing state secrets overseas" (20 December 16). On January 14, 2019, the Miangyang Intermediate People's Court held a closed-door trial on the charges of “illegally providing state secrets to foreign entities” and “intentionally leaking state secrets” (CHRD, 14 January 19). Authorities have refused requests for medical parole despite Huang's acute kidney disease (HRIC, 16 November 17). Huang's 85-year-old mother Pu Wenqing was "disappeared" by authorities in December 2018. Authorities sentenced Huang to 5 years in prison in 2000 for "subversion" and to 3 years in prison in 2009 for "illegal possession of state secrets" in connection to his work following the 2008 Sichuan earthquake (WP, 24 November 09).
