Beijing human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng is still missing after he was taken away by public security officers on 4 February this year. China Human Rights Lawyers Concern group is deeply concerned about Lawyer Gao’s personal safety.
We learned from the US-based China Aid Association that Chinese Ambassador to the United States Zhou Wenzhong for the first time has responded to repeated demands about Lawyer Gao’s situation. The ambassador claimed that the public security authority has not taken any mandatory action against Lawyer Gao. Albert Ho Chun-yan, chairman of China Human Rights Lawyers Concern Group, and other members of the Concern Group are going to stage a demonstration outside the Central Government Liaison Office at 12:45pm on 17 June 2009 (this Wednesday) to repeat our demand for information about Lawyer Gao’s whereabouts.
Albert Ho Chun-yan, chairman of the Concern Group, will continue his 14th weekly 24-hour fasting on Wednesday and John Clancey, international affairs secretary of the Concern Group, will continue his 12-hour fasting every Wednesday to support Lawyer Gao and other mainland human rights lawyers subjected to suppression.
Members of other NGOs and the general public are welcome to join our action!
Date: 17 June 2009 (this Wednesday)
