Bao Longjun Case Update

August 31, 2015

This case update—originally circulated on WeChat—explains that Chen Yongfu, lawyer to Bao Longjun, who has been accused of inciting subversion of state power, received a call on August 31 from someone claiming to be from the Tianjin Public Security Bureau. The individual on the phone sought relevant information on Bao Longjun’s case. In his response, Chen said: in indiscriminately charging someone with a crime while finding no relevant facts to support the charge, the Tianjin police would never be able to get its way in a human rights case that has caused widespread concern both at home and abroad.


关于包龙军案的情况最新通报

今天(8月31日)早上9点,一个18202543929的号码来电,告知其为天津市公安局,收到天津市检察院转办的法律监督函,向陈永福律师调查了解相关情况。

该人询问和了解了律师发函时间,律师是否知道具体承办机关,律师如何知道归天津警方管辖,包龙军是否和案件有关,是否属于北京锋锐律所人员,警方是否和家属接触,警方采取强制措施情况等等诸多问题。

陈永福律师不能确定来电人是否明知故问,但是通过说话语气和表达仿佛确实不清楚具体情况,对于其问题进行了简单回复,同时律师明确表达了如下观点:

第一,包龙军和北京锋锐所案件毫无关联,包龙军和北京锋锐没有任何职务隶属关系;

第二,包龙军被警方定罪煽动颠覆国家政权罪,这完全是滥用罪名,恶意阻止律师会见,构成滥用职权。

第三,目前警方已经采取强制措施近50天,该查明的案情基本已经查明,该让律师会见的应当让律师会见,如果警方滥定罪名,而又查明没有相关犯罪事实,作为一件引起国内外广泛关注的人权案件,天津警方最后将彻底无法收场。

来电人告知律师,将了解情况后答复律师。
