Letter from Jiang Tianyong’s Lawyers Demanding Meeting with Client

June 6, 2017

Jiang Tianyong's defense lawyer Chen Jinxue sent a letter to the sub-bureau of the Changsha Municipal Public Security Bureau requesting for the fifth time to meet with Jiang. Previously, Chen and Jiang’s other defense lawyer, Qin Chenshou, had asked eight times to see their client. The Public Security Bureau has denied the lawyers visitation rights on the grounds that such meetings would hinder the investigation and could reveal state secrets. The Changsha Public Security Bureau has also passed onto the lawyers a letter of dismissal signed by Jiang. Chen believes that the Changsha Public Security Bureau’s refusal to let the lawyers meet with Jiang is groundless. Even if a lawyer is dismissed by his client, the lawyer, according to the “Provisions on Safeguarding Lawyers’ Practice Rights in Accordance with Law,” has the right to request to meet with the detained criminal suspect or defendant to confirm the dismissal in person.


律师会见江天勇要求书

要求人:广东律成定邦律师事务所陈进学律师

2017年6月5日,江天勇父亲收到你局的通知书,称江天勇已被长沙市检察院批准逮捕,罪名是涉嫌颠覆国家政权罪。受江天勇父亲委托,要求人担任江天勇的辩护律师。要求人与江天勇的另外一位辩护律师覃臣寿此前共8次向你局要求会见江天勇,你局都不许可律师会见,理由都是会见有碍侦查或者可能泄露国家秘密。要求人认为,律师会见当然不会有碍侦查或者可能泄露国家秘密,律师会见这一执业行为是受律师执业道德、律师执业纪律和法律的制约,如存在有碍侦查或者泄露国家秘密的行为,是要承担法律责任的。另,你局转交一份署名为江天勇的解聘声明,该声明称江天勇解聘了要求人和覃臣寿律师,根据《关于依法保障律师执业权利的规定》第八条:“在押的犯罪嫌疑人、被告人提出解除委托关系的,办案机关应当要求其出具或签署书面文件,并在三日以内转交受委托的律师或者律师事务所。辩护律师可以要求会见在押的犯罪嫌疑人、被告人,当面向其确认解除委托关系,看守所应当安排会见”。综上两点,要求人特第五次要求会见江天勇,请许可。

此致
