Cina – Release Zhu Chengzhi immediately

Human rights activist Zhu Chengzhi was sent to 10 days' administrative detention on 9 June for disrupting public order. He should have been released on 18 June but was transferred to a detention centre and held incommunicado, putting him at risk of torture and other ill-treatment.

Human rights activist Zhu Chengzhi, aged 62, from Shaoyang, Hunan province, was taken away by Daxiang District police on 9 June, after two days of house arrest. The following afternoon, his wife Zeng Qinglian received notice from the authorities that Zhu was to serve 10 days' administrative detention for disrupting public order, and would be released on 18 June. She thinks that Zhu Chengzhi was detained for refusing to sign an undertaking not to call for an independent investigation into the death of human rights activist Li Wangyang. On 18 June, rather than being released, he was transferred to a detention facility in Shuangqing District, Hunan, though he had not even been charged.
