Short Summary
According to RDN (4 December 16) and RFA (23 November 16; 28 November 16), on November 21, 2016, rights advocate Jiang Tianyong disappeared in Changsha municipality, Hunan province, where he was to meet with the wife and lawyers of detained lawyer Xie Yang. On December 16, state media reported Jiang served 9 days' administrative detention for using someone else's ID, and that police placed him under "criminal compulsory measures" on December 1 on suspicion of "illegally possessing state secrets" and "illegally providing state secrets overseas" (The Paper, 16 December 16). On December 23, Jiang's family received notice that Changsha authorities placed Jiang under "residential surveillance at a designated location" on suspicion of "inciting subversion of state power" (RFA, 23 December 16). On May 31 Changsha police arrested Jiang for "subversion of state power," holding him at the Changsha No. 1 PSB Detention Center (RDN, 5 June 17). Several UN human rights experts (Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, 6 December 16) expressed concerns that Chinese authorities detained Jiang for his legal advocacy, including for members of religious groups, for which authorities previously harassed and detained him, including in 2011 and 2014 (CHRD, 10 April 14).
