(Tianjin—Jan. 23, 2017) Two human rights lawyers arrested during a nationwide roundup suffered electrocution and other forms of torture while incarcerated, China Aid learned yesterday.

Wang Qiaoling, the wife of incarcerated human rights attorney Li Heping, confirmed on Jan. 23 that her husband and another lawyer, Wang Quanzhang, had been tortured using various methods, including electric batons, during their first six months in prison. Li fainted several times.

Both Li and Wang were placed in police custody in 2015 for their defense work. Li, who was held at an unknown location for six months, was formally arrested on Jan. 20, 2016, on suspicion of “subverting state power” and is incarcerated at the Tianjin Municipal Detention Center No. 1.

China Aid exposes abuses, such as those experienced by Li and Wang, in order to stand in solidarity with the persecuted and promote religious freedom, human rights, and rule of law.
