Liu Feiyue Faces an Additional Charge Brought by Suizhou Police

August 16, 2017

Wen Donghai—defense lawyer of Liu Feiyue, head of Civil Rights and Livelihood Watch and activist from Hubei—found out, after attending a meeting with the procuratorate that on August 8, 2017 Liu’s case of “inciting subversion of state power” has been transferred again to the Suizhou Procuratorate, after Suizhou Public Security Bureau finished the supplementary investigation. Liu was, however, charged with an additional charge of “leaking state secrets to foreigners.” Wen says that the Public Security Bureau’s decision to further charge Liu even after completion of the supplementary investigation is against the law. 

Liu was criminally detained in November 2016 before being arrested in December on suspicion of “inciting subversion of state power.” His case was transferred to Suizhou Procuratorate in May but was referred back to Suizhou Public Security Bureau for supplementary investigation in July. 


刘飞跃被随州警方增加一指控罪名

国内信息

2017年8月16日
 

2017年8月15日刘飞跃的辩护律师文东海会见后通过检察院了解到, 刘飞跃涉嫌煽动颠覆国家政权一案,于2017年8月8日被随州市公安局补充完毕,并再次移送随州市检察院,同时增加指控了一个新的罪名——为境外非法提供国家秘密罪。

律师在会见他时,他说到在8月11日,随州市公安局仍然在提审他,但据随州市公安局发给律师的短信介绍,他们已经于8月8日结束补充侦查,此时提审显属法外之举,律师在会见刘飞跃后,又赶到检察院就刘飞跃提供的情况和检察院交涉,并申请调取补充侦查案卷,但承办检察官解释,案卷仍在公安局,并说是依据《人民检察院刑事诉讼规则》第一百七十一条之规定,要求公安局在审查起诉期间提供证据,但律师看了该规定后,发现检察院机械地理解该规定的个别字句,很显然该规定就是规定检察院可以退回补充侦查的权力,该规定第二款和第三款是对第一款的限定,其意在告诉检察院,检察院在审查起诉期间如果觉得需要公安局补充证据,可以采取退回补充侦查的方式补充证据,而不是随便什么时候都可以要求公安局增加证据,检察院同时告诉律师,是他们同意公安局在补充侦查终结后再次去看守所会见刘飞跃。律师指出,检察院在补充侦查终结后又把案卷退回公安局并继续侦查(包括去看守所提讯刘飞跃的行为)都是违法,应当立即纠正,检察官记下了律师的要求,同意回去再研究答复,因案卷不在检察院,检察院和律师约定下周后可以复制案卷。

刘飞跃,生于1970年2月5日,湖北省随州市人,曾任教于随州市曾都区东关学校,《民生观察》网站创办人。2016年11月18日被随州市公安局刑拘,同年12月23日被随州市检察院以涉嫌煽动颠覆国家政权罪逮捕,随州市公安局经多次延期,于2017年5月23日起诉到随州市检察院,随州市检察院于2017年7月8日将案件退回随州市公安局补充侦查一个月,同年8月8日随州市公安局补充侦查终结,又将案件移送到随州市检察院,刘飞跃现羁押于随州市看守所。
