Short Summary
According to RDN (1 June 16) and HRCIC (2 June 16), on May 31, 2016, public security officials in Fengtai district, Beijing municipality, took into custody Ma Xinli, criminally detaining him the next day on suspicion of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” and holding him at the Fengtai PSB Detention Center. Ma’s detention was reportedly connected to a Beijing gathering of rights advocates, including Zhao Changqing, Zhang Baocheng, Xu Caihong, Liang Taiping, Li Meiqing, and Li Wei, to commemorate the 1989 Tiananmen protests. They reportedly shared a photo of themselves at the gathering, showing two banners calling for commemoration of June Fourth and the release of Guo Feixiong and Yu Shiwen. Authorities previously detained Ma on two occasions: in 2013 and 2014, reportedly in connection with his anticorruption and rights advocacy (RFA, 24 February 14; CHRD, 21 April 15). Authorities reportedly released Ma on bail on June 29, 2016 (RDN, 29 June 16).
