Deprivation of Liberty and Torture/Other Mistreatment of Human Rights Defenders in China (Partial data, last updated on June 30)
This partial data has been compiled by Chinese Human Rights Defenders (CHRD). It is based on information collected from reports by human rights organizations working in mainland China. Launched in March 2013, this data documentation, with a focus on the period beginning from January 1, 2012, now includes more than 740 cases of human rights defenders (HRDs) who are known/believed to have been deprived of liberty for at least five (5) days. In addition, the data includes HRDs who are known to have been tortured or inhumanely treated in retaliation for their rights advocacy work, regardless of length of detention. (Cases are listed in descending chronological order, with the most recent cases first.)
