Beijing human rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong missing

Beijing human rights lawyer, Jiang Tianyong, has not been heard from since 21 November when he was due to board a train to Beijing from Changsha, Hunan. He has been previously detained and is at risk of torture or other ill-treatment.

Jiang Tianyong was on his way back from Changsha, Hunan on 21 November after visiting the wife of detained human rights lawyer, Xie Yang. During his visit, Jiang Tianyong accompanied the wife, and three other lawyers, to Changsha Detention Centre to try to arrange a meeting with detained Xie Yang. Jiang Tianyong has not been heard from since calling his wife, Jin Bianling, right before he was due to board the train back to Beijing.

Two days after he went missing, on 23 November, one of his family members reported Jiang Tianyong’s disappearance to the Tongbolu Branch of the Zhengzhou Public Security Bureau. The officials refused to take up the case citing jurisdictional constraints because, although Jiang Tianyong’s residential status (“hukou”) is registered in Zhengzhou, it was unclear where he was last seen.

Jiang Tianyong is a well-known human rights lawyer, whose activism resulted in him being disbarred in 2009. He has since continued his work as a human rights defender, despite suffering ongoing harassment, detention and physical beatings.

Sad to read about the disappearance of Mr Jiang Tianyong.

He may be alive and in custody again (and perhaps subjected to tortured).

Some history on Mr Jiang_Tianyong -
