Two New Charges for Asset Transparency Advocate Liu Ping

August 29, 2013

According to HRIC sources, Liu Ping (刘萍), who was indicted in July for “illegal assembly” (非法集会), has been charged with two new counts. The new charges are “gathering a crowd to disrupt order in a public place” (聚众扰乱公共场所秩序罪) and “using a cult to damage enforcement of the law” (利用邪教组织破坏法律实施罪).

On April 21, 2013, Liu Ping participated in a protest in Xinyu, Jiangxi Province, calling for public disclosure of officials’ assets and the release of political prisoners. Liu, along with two other protestors Wei Zhongping (魏忠平), and Li Sihua (李思华), was criminally detained on April 28 (originally on suspicion of “inciting subversion of state power”) and formally arrested on June 4.

All three are former independent candidates for the People’s Congress in Xinyu. Liu is currently being held at the Xinyu Municipal Detention Center.
