Jiang Tianyong Missing for over 24 Hours

November 23, 2016

The wife of Beijing rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong says that as of early morning November 23, 2016, her husband has been missing for more than 24 hours. Jiang was due to arrive in Beijing by train at 6:30am, November 22, after a visit to Changsha to accompany the wife of lawyer Xie Yang, who was detained in the 709 crackdown, and Xie Yang’s lawyer to go to the Changsha Detention Center to attempt to set up a meeting with Xie. Jiang’s wife, Jin Bianling, says in this account that Jiang had told her at 10:22pm, November 21, that he had bought a train ticket to return to Beijing, but he never arrived. She says that every time she called his mobile, she received a cryptic message that said: “The call has been transferred to the secretary’s desk.” Jin urges the public to pay attention to Jiang’s disappearance.  


江天勇妻子:丈夫失联逾24小时

我丈夫江天勇律师几天前去湖南长沙看望709案件被捕律师谢阳的太太陈桂秋。逗留期间,他陪同陈桂秋及谢阳的辩护律师张重实、蔺其磊及律师同仁马连顺到长沙看守所了解谢阳的会见事宜。

11月21日北京时间22点22分,江天勇告诉我,已购买D940火车票回京,发车时间22点53分,正点应于次日6点30分抵京。此后便失去联系,至23日凌晨已经超过24小时。其间我多次拨打他的电话,系统均提示“已转至秘书台”,通过多种网络通讯软件也未能取得联系。经询问长沙和北京的朋友,均称过去24小时之内无法联系上江天勇。

鉴于江天勇在从事人权工作过程中,曾多次遭遇秘密警察的绑架,鉴于“709”之后越来越多的律师遭遇强迫失踪及酷刑,我呼吁各界对江天勇本次的失联予以关注!
