Urgent Action: Risk of imminent execution for Hong Kong citizen

The death sentence of Hong Kong citizen Wu Zongxi is currently under review by the Supreme People’s Court. If approved, the authorities will sign an order to carry out his execution, placing him in imminent risk. Wu Zongxi’s family is gravely concerned about his physical and mental state, as they have not been allowed to meet him since he was detained more than four years ago.

Take action.

Please write immediately in Chinese, English or your own language urging the authorities to immediately:

  • Halt plans to carry out Wu Zongxi’s execution;
  • Ensure that Wu Zongxi has regular, unrestricted access to family and lawyers of his choice, and is not subjected to torture or other ill-treatment;
  • Establish a moratorium on all executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty, in line with six UN General Assembly resolution adopted since 2007 and commute all existing death sentences.
