Update on Lawyer Yu Wensheng’s Case

New!
September 2, 2020

In this update, Xu Yan, wife of detained human rights lawyer Yu Wensheng, provides the latest developments in her husband’s case. On the morning of September 3, Yu’s two defense lawyers plan to meet with Yu at the Xuzhou Municipal Detention Center to discuss his upcoming trial of second instance. Xu Yan says that despite her current ill health, she plans to go to Xuzhou in order to deposit money at the detention center for Yu to use and to request that the Xuzhou City Public Security Bureau disclose information on Yu’s deteriorating health as well as the record of his daily life in the recent two weeks.

Yu Wensheng, from Beijing, was detained in January 2018 and has been kept at the Xuzhou Municipal Detention Center in Jiangsu Province. On June 17, 2020, he was sentenced to four years in prison on conviction of "inciting subversion of state power" by the Xuzhou Intermediate Court, more than a year after the court heard his case in a closed trial on May 9, 2019. He was also sentenced to three years of post-release deprivation of political rights.
