British MP raises case of Chinese hunger-strike activist

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

China Aid
By Brynne Lawrence

(London—July 27, 2016) The United Kingdom’s Parliament answered an official topic question regarding an activist imprisoned in China’s southern Guangdong province on July 26.

Lord David Alton of Liverpool, a member of the House of Lords and a prominent human rights advocate, inquired after efforts the British government has made to address the case of Guo Feixiong, a dissident imprisoned in a detention center in Guangzhou on a falsified “assembling a crowd to disrupt order in a public place” charge, with the Chinese government. Guo’s case has recently garnered international attention as his health plummets due to an ongoing hunger strike.

The answer to this question, addressed by Joyce Anelay, Baroness Anelay of St John’s, can be read in full below.

Q: Asked by: Lord Alton of Liverpool

Asked on: 08 July 2016


Foreign and Commonwealth Office

Guo Feixiong

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what representations they have made to the government of China about the case of Guo Feixiong; and what response they have received.

A: Answered by: Baroness Anelay of St Johns

Answered on: 26 July 2016

The former Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for East Devon (Mr Swire), raised the case of Guo Feixiong with the Chinese Ambassador on 3 December 2015, who said the case was being handled according to Chinese law. More recently, we supported an EU statement on 22 June 2016. That statement called for Guo, along with several other individuals detained for seeking to protect the rights of others, such as their right to freedom of expression, to be released.

We continue to monitor Guo’s case and report on it via the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy. We will raise Guo’s case at the next round of the UK-China Human Rights Dialogue.
