Short Summary
According to RDN (11 July 13; 28 August 13; 23 October 13) and HRIC (15 October 13; 6 December 13), between April 28 and 30, 2013, PSB officials in Xinyu city, Jiangxi province, detained anticorruption and transparency advocates Liu Ping, Wei Zhongping, and Li Sihua, arresting them on June 4 for "illegal assembly." Officials charged them for participating in demonstrations calling for disclosure of officials' assets and planning rights defense activities. Officials later modified the charge to "picking quarrels and provoking trouble." Officials held Liu in the Xinyu Detention Center and Wei and Li in the Fenyi County Detention Center. In August, authorities charged Liu and Wei with "gathering a crowd to disrupt public order" and "using a cult to damage enforcement of the law," for election campaigning in 2011 and forwarding online posts urging people to attend a Falun Gong practitioner's trial in 2012. The Yushui District People's Court tried them on October 28 and on June 18, 2014, sentenced Liu and Wei to 6 years and 6 months in prison and Li to 3 years in prison. Authorities transferred Liu to the Nanchang Women's Prison in Jiangxi (CHRD, 13 November 13). On August 5 the Xinyu Intermediate People's Court rejected their joint appeal and upheld the sentences (RDN, 11 August 14).
