Urgent Action: Chinese refugees at risk of refoulement from Thailand

Chinese human rights defenders YANG Chong and WU Yuhua, UNHCR-recognized refugees, have been charged with immigration offences in Thailand. They could be deported to China, where they would face risks of unfair trial and torture.

Please write immediately in Thai, English or your own language urging the authorities to:
◼ Immediately and unconditionally release Yang Chong, and lift all restrictions and drop all charges against him and Wu Yuhua.
◼ Not return Yang Chong and Wu Yuhua to China or another country where they would be at real risk of persecution, torture or other serious human rights violations or abuses.
◼ Accede to the UN Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol.
