(Wenzhou, Zhejiang—Oct. 16, 2015) At 12:44 a.m. on Oct. 17, China Standard Time, the Wenzhou Municipal Public Security Bureau (PSB) surrounded the home of detained human rights lawyer Zhang Kai, demanding that his wife let them in to search the house.

China Aid received information from Zhang Kai’s sister, Zhang Yan, who was also present during the conflict. She said that h
er sister-in-law, Liu “Jo” Zhou, didn’t want to open the door for the PSB officers, so they broke into the home and began searching.

Zhang Yan also said that a PSB officer briefly let her glance at the search warrant; however, she was unable to glean much information without further inspection. She was also forbidden to make phone calls, or she would be accused of “obstruction of justice.”
