Wives of Lawyers Detained in “709 Crackdown” Taken Away for Carrying out “Bucket Show” Protest, Defense Lawyers Reprimanded by Police

June 6, 2016

Today, outside the entrance of the No. 2 branch of the Tianjin People’s Procuratorate, the wives of a number of lawyers who were arrested and disappeared in the “709 crackdown” nearly a year ago, used a “bucket show” to protest the authorities’ trampling on the law and express support for their husbands. They were taken to the Guajiasi police substation of the Hexi District branch of the Tianjin Public Security Bureau.

In addition, four defense lawyers for some of the lawyers in custody went to the Tianjin No.2 Procuratorate to find out about the progress of their clients’ cases. After they submitted written materials for the defense and for bringing suit against Tianjin Public Security Bureau for its unlawful handling of their clients’ cases, they were reprimanded and threatened by the police. As they were leaving, they were told by policemen: “If you don’t cooperate with our inquiries, we’ll initiate procedures to interrogate you.”











王磊律师说: 2016年6月6日上午,四位律师是去天津检察院二分院了解案件是否移送起诉,递交辩护手续,并控告天津市公安局违法办案,剥夺律师辩护权、会见权以及了解案情权等问题。律师在天津二分院了解了案件进展,递交了书面控告材料,走出来后遭警察强制口头传唤。
