Lü Gengsong’s lawyer denied access to client

July 18, 2014

On July 7, 2014, Lü Gengsong, member of the China Democracy Party’s Zhejiang Committee, was criminally detained on suspicion of “subversion of state power.” Ding Xikui, a lawyer with the Mo Shaoping Law Firm in Beijing, was retained by Lü’s family as defense counsel. On July 17, Ding traveled to Hangzhou and requested to meet Lü in Hangzhou Detention Center. After spending most of the day shuttling between the detention center and the public security bureau, Ding’s request was denied. The decision stated that “given that Lü is suspected of ‘subversion of state power,’ which is classified as a crime that endangers state security, such a meeting could result in the leaking of state secrets or impede the investigation.” The essay, written by Chen Shuqing, a China Democracy Party member, recounts what Ding experienced.


吕耿松案律师会见受阻

陈树庆

中国民主党人、杰出的维权斗士吕耿松先生自2014年7月7号被杭州警方以涉嫌“颠覆国家政权罪”刑事拘留后,受到了各方的广泛关注。7月16日下午,北京莫少平律师事务所的丁锡奎大律师专程赶到杭州,接受了吕耿松先生家属的委托,作为吕耿松先生再次遭受政治迫害案的辩护人(注:吕耿松先生曾于2007年8月24日被抄家拘捕,2008年2月5日,被杭州市中级人民法院以“煽动颠覆国家政权罪”判处有期徒刑四年,剥夺政治权利一年,于2011年8月23日刑满释放)。

7月17日上午9时30分左右,丁锡奎律师在吕夫人汪雪娥女士的陪同下,专程赶到了位于杭州市北郊余杭区仁和镇运溪路36号的杭州市看守所,看守所接待警官说律师会见吕耿松必须经办案机关同意。为此,丁律师马不停蹄地赶回杭州城南的杭州市公安局,找到了经办本案的杭州市国保支队,当时负责接洽的郑警官说要向领导汇报讨论后,才能决定能否让律师会见吕耿松先生,并承诺尽快会给律师答复。

当日下午近15时,丁律师再次来到杭州市公安局,由蔡警官负责向丁律师答复,交给了丁律师一张台头为杭州市公安局的《不准予会见犯罪嫌疑人决定书》,决定书上说:因吕耿松涉嫌颠覆国家政权罪属于危害国家安全犯罪案件,会见可能泄露国家秘密或有碍侦查,根据《中华人民共和国刑事诉讼法》第三十七条之规定,决定不准予申请人会见犯罪嫌疑人吕耿松。

丁锡奎律师今天下午已经坐高铁动车返回北京,在告别吕耿松先生的家属、朋友时,丁律师说:吕耿松先生和平理性地替百姓维权、推动国家民主法治进步,取保候审不存在社会危害性,他准备为吕耿松先生尽快向办案机关杭州市公安局提交《取保候审申请书》,争取吕耿松先生早日获释。
