Urgent Action update: Constant surveillance impacts lawyer’s health
Human rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong remains under heavy surveillance, despite having been released from prison in February 2019. The ongoing interference by authorities means that he is unable to access appropriate medical treatment. Jiang Tianyong requires immediate access to adequate healthcare, as the consequences of being tortured in prison continue to impact his health.
PLEASE SEND APPEALS BEFORE 2 JULY 2019
Please write urgently in your own words or using the template letter included in English or Chinese to:
Luoshan County Public Security Bureau
Xingzheng Dadao 16
Luoshan Xian, Xinyang Shi
Henan Sheng, China
Salutation: Dear Director
Also send copies to diplomatic representatives accredited to your country.
Please check with your section before sending appeals after the above date.
Please note that is best to reach the target by sending postal mail. Although it is costlier to mail by post, it is still the most effective way as the Chinese government strictly requires registration with phone number and sometimes ID card for direct communications with any government departments on official websites. They also seldom provide public email addresses.
The second-best option is to email the county government; however, please note that it is common for these addresses to be blocked after a large number of messages are received.
