China Authorities Crackdown on Human Rights Lawyers

China Human Rights Activists Protesting Persecution of Political Prisoners

More than two days after Chinese authorities forced open the door to his Beijing home and dragged him away, Human Rights Atty Tang Jitian remains missing.

While Chinese officials have stated that he is in Police Custody, they have failed to produce any legal documentation notifying his family of his whereabouts.

Tang’s disappearance is the latest in a growing list of human rights abuses in China.
