China to prosecute missing lawyer's case

(Tianjin, China—Dec. 13, 2016) The case of a missing human rights lawyer has been moved out of the investigation stage and transferred to a court in China’s northern Tianjin Municipality for prosecution, his wife learned on Dec. 6.

On July 10, 2015, Li Heping, a Christian defense attorney who used his career to protect those targeted by the Communist Party, vanished into police custody when officials herded him from his home as part of a nationwide round-up of human rights lawyers. Li Chunfu, his brother, who also practiced law, went missing on Aug. 1, 2015. Neither man has been seen or heard from since.

Wang Qiaoling, Li Heping’s wife, received the news on Dec. 6 that her husband’s case had been handed over to the court, concluding its investigation process and moving it into the prosecution phase. Yesterday, she went to the Tianjin People’s Procuratorate No. 2 Branch, where officials confirmed that Li had been charged with “subversion of state power.” His brother’s charge is still unknown.

China Aid reports abuses, such as those experienced by Li Heping and Li Chunfu, in order to stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians and promote human rights, religious freedom and rule of law in China.
