    Mr. Hu Jintao
    President of the People’s Republic of China
    c/o Ministry of Justice
    1 Huajiadija, Chaoyangqu
    Bejingshi
    People’s Republic of China
    Via Fax: + 86 10 647 298 63
    
    Dear President Hu Jintao,
    
    As individuals and leaders in the fields of religion, bioethics, human rights and reproductive
    health who are deeply committed to ethical and justice-based policies that uphold the principles
    of informed choice and quality of care and that are voluntary and free from coercion, we write to
    express our deep concern about the case of Chen Guangcheng.
    We have followed favorably the many efforts made by your government to institute measures in
    your national population program that reflect your commitment to the UN ICPD Programme of
    Action and advance non-coercive reproductive health services in China. We know that along the
    road to achieving those goals, individual and local violations of your new laws will happen. But
    we were dismayed to learn that from late 2004 to early 2005, three districts and nine counties in
    Linyi city, Shandong province, engaged in a large-scale population planning campaign that both
    violated the Population and Family Planning Law of the People’s Republic of China and
    included coercive and forceful actions such as imprisonment, assault and non-voluntary
    sterilization and abortion.
    More disturbing has been the state’s actions against Chen Guangcheng, who was tried without
    the presence of his lawyers on Friday, 18 August 2006. Mr. Chen was charged with destruction
    of property and disrupting traffic, although he was originally detained after he sought to gain
    lawful redress for those whose rights under Chinese law were violated.
    In January 2005, Mr. Chen, a lawyer and civil rights defender, and his wife Yuan Weijing,
    launched an investigation into an illegal local population planning campaign in Linyi city. Their
    efforts led to the subsequent investigation and confirmation by the National Population and
    Family Planning Commission in July 2005 that Linyi’s population planning campaign included
    serious violations of law. The combined efforts of Mr. Chen, some victims and other concerned
    citizens exposed Linyi’s illegal actions and compelled local authorities to compensate to some of
    the victims.
    We were troubled to learn that beginning in August 2005, Linyi city and Yinan county
    authorities used surveillance, threats, restrictions on personal freedom and other illegal methods
    to suppress Chen Guangcheng and other rights advocates. Among the human rights violations
    suffered by Mr. Chen are:
    * Illegal house arrest and detention, beginning 12 August 2005;
    * A 6-month forced disappearance, prior to his formal detention and charge in June 2006;
    * Denial of outside contacts and visits by lawyers and family during this detention; and
    * Threats, assaults upon and the detention of Mr. Chen’s lawyers.
    The proceedings leading up to his trial which began on 18 August 2006 are legally questionably
    and include violations of the defendant’s rights to freedom from arbitrary detention and torture
    and the right to legal council. For example, on 17 August 2006, the day before the trial began,
    lawyers Zhang Lihui, Li Fangping and legal scholar Xu Zhiyong were detained by Yinan police
    after unidentified men apprehended them, accusing them of “picking pockets” in the streets of
    Yinan County. While Mr. Zhang and Mr. Li were released, Mr. Xu remains in detention.
    Activists in Shandong and Beijing have been called on the phone or visited by state security,
    who warned them of severe consequences if they try to go to Linyi, and a number of them have
    been put under house arrest or surveillance. Additionally, the Beijing lawyer Gao Zhisheng who
    went to Linyi in July to show support to Mr. Chen was arrested on the 15 August in Shandong,
    and all contacts to Mr. Gao and his family members and relatives have been cut off.
    We are deeply concerned that this trial could not possibly respect the principle of fair trial and
    basic human rights unless the court looks into these accusations and make necessary remedies.
    We ask that the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, the Standing Committee
    of the Shandong People’s Congress, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate, the Shandong People’s
    Procuratorate, the Ministry of Supervision and the Shandong Supervision Bureau promptly form
    a “special issue” investigation committee, in accordance with the provisions of the Chinese
    Constitution and laws, to immediately begin investigative procedures into and launch legal
    supervision of the severe violations of the human rights of Chen Guangcheng.
    We ask that the court refrain from issuing a verdict until these investigations are completed and
    that if any verdict is rendered before such measures have been taken, its implementation be
    suspended until such investigation is completed and any violations of due process and human
    rights are corrected.
    Protracted illegal restrictions on the personal liberty of Chen Guangcheng and other local rights
    defenders constitute a severe violation of China’s Constitution and the international human rights
    standards that the Chinese government has already committed to and must not be tolerated.
    We ask that the central government expeditiously carry out its constitutional obligation of
    respecting and protecting human rights, and that judicial agencies exercise their right to judicial
    independence, as declared by law, to impartially consider the illegal actions of local law
    enforcement agencies' arbitrary detention of Chen Guangcheng, quickly restore the personal
    liberty of Mr. Chen, Yuan Weijing and associates, and in accordance with the law investigate the
    legal responsibility of those who violated people’s rights. We hope this resolution will include
    the release of Chen Guangcheng and associates as the result of proper due process and in
    conformation with international human rights standards.
    
    Respectfully yours,

    CHINA'S PRESIDENT CALLED ON TO RELEASE BAREFOOT LAWYER WHO OPPOSED COERCIVE ABORTIONS
    
    Advocates around the world criticize treatment of Chen Guangcheng, seek investigation and redress for human rights violations.
    
    BEIJING—Today more than 100 leaders in the fields of human rights, bioethics, reproductive health and religion from more than 30 countries and six continents submitted a letter to Chinese President Hu Jintao to protest the treatment and trial of Chen Guangcheng.
    
    The letter, coordinated by Catholics for a Free Choice and signed by individuals who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of social justice, human rights, ethics and morality, asked the relevant national and municipal authorities “to immediately begin investigative procedures into and launch legal supervision of the severe violations of the human rights of Chen Guangcheng.”
    
    Chen, a lawyer and human rights defender, became subject to harassment, arbitrary detention and other human rights violations last year after exposing a large-scale population planning campaign that both violated the Population and Family Planning Law of the People’s Republic of China and included coercive and forceful actions such as imprisonment, assault and non-voluntary sterilization and abortion in Linyi city, Shandong province. On Thursday, 24 August, he was sentenced to four years, three months imprisonment in a trial that excluded his own lawyers from participation.
    
    “This action against Chen is surprising in light of China’s recent improvements in law and practice, which call for non-coercive reproductive health services,” said Frances Kissling, president of Catholics for a Free Choice and the leader of an interfaith delegation that traveled to China in 2003 to investigate its family planning practices. “It demonstrates governmental ambivalence in implementing these policies. International pressure—especially from those supportive of reproductive health—is essential to building Chinese resolve to respect the human rights of women regarding reproduction.”
    
    Appalled by the treatment of Chen, the signatories of the letter stated: “We hope this resolution will include the release of Chen Guangcheng and associates as the result of proper due process and in conformation with international human rights standards.” (博讯记者:蔡楚) [博讯首发,欢迎转载,请注明出处]- 支持此文作者/记者
