Lawyers Again Denied Access to Clients in Jiangsanjiang
The illegal detention of Falun Gong practitioners by
the Jiansanjiang authorities in Heilongjiang Province
has triggered continued rights defense activities by lawyers.
On Jan. 22, Beijing lawyer, Wang Yu and Chongqing lawyer,
Tang Tianhao went to the Jiamusi Detention Center
and the Land Reclamation Jiansanjiang Detention Center,
but were again denied a meeting with their clients, Li Guifang
and Shi Mengwen, who are Falun Gong practitioners.
Two lawyers protested at the related local organizations,
holding placards demanding their rights.
Last March, 7 Falun Gong practitioners and 4 rights lawyers
were arrested and tortured for requesting the release of
illegally detained Falun Gong practitioners.
The lawyers were beaten and sustained 24 broken ribs in total,
while three practitioners were left in critical condition.
This triggered a huge response; many justice lawyers and
citizens visited Jiangsanjiang to request their release.
Although subsequently the four lawyers and three Falun Gong
practitioners were released, another four practitioners are now
detained and have been banned from meeting with lawyers.
HK Work Committee Joins China Political Conference
Jan. 21, the CCP Politics and Law Committee official website
China ChangAn published their content meeting from the 20th.
They refer to activities of the Hong Kong and Macau Work
Committee, whose directors attended the meeting.
Mainland media reprinted the story, which has attracted
the attention of media in Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong Work Committee is deployed by the CCP
and is an underground organization in Hong Kong.
This is the first time the CCP publicly disclosed its national
security-themed meeting from its politics and law system.
The Hong Kong Economic Journal quoted an analysis from
commentator Liu Ruishao, saying that although the CCP
hasn’t made public the identities of the committee members,
the CCP may want the Hong Kong people to get used to
committee’s existence underground.
Chinese Regime Uses Taiwan as Cyber Attack Test Ground
The CCP is frequently found to be the culprit
for global cyber-attacks.
On Jan. 22, Chang San-cheng, the convener of the Taiwan
Government Information Security Report and vice president
of Executive Yuan, said at a press conference that the CCP’s
many cyber-attack tricks on Taiwan are the first of their kind.
According to the British Broadcasting Corporation’s website,
Chang San-cheng has disclosed that over 300 cyber-attacks
are reported every year by Taiwan government agencies.
Based on the resource and technique,
it’s reasonable to believe that they were from the CCP.
Chang San-cheng says Taiwan holds good global relations
and the CCP is the first regime to attempt attacks on them.
Many believe the CCP uses Taiwan as a testing ground
