June 19, 2015

On June 18, 2015, three lawyers, Wang Quanzhang, Shi Fulong, and Chen Zhiyong, were discharging their duty as defense counsel at the Dongchangfu District Court, Liaocheng, Shandong Province. They were interrupted numerous times by the court. Wang Quanzhang was even expelled from the courtroom, dragged outside, and beaten until he sustained injuries. At the same time, the other two lawyers were detained inside the courthouse by more than ten bailiffs, who searched through their possessions. Afterwards, Wang Quanzhang and Shi Fulong were brought to a police substation for questioning, and the items they had on their persons were seized illegally. It was 2:00 a.m. before they were allowed to leave the police substation.
