Case Update: Wuhan Rights Activist Wang Fang Subjected to Inhumane Treatment in Detention

November 4, 2015

On November 11, 2015, Wang Fang, currently detained in Wuhan No. 1 Detention Center, met with her lawyer, Liu Zhengqing. Liu explains in his account that during his meeting with Wang, she expressed thanks for the concern shown by friends outside and that she also gave him a hand-written letter of complaint. The complaint accuses the detention center of placing a person carrying an infectious disease in a supervision room, thereby posing risks to all the healthy detainees inside that room. This act, Wang maintains, infringed on the right to health of those in the same room. The complaint also states that Wang has been subjected to inhuman treatment while in detention.
