Christian human rights lawyer to stand trial tomorrow

(Changsha, Hunan—Aug. 21, 2017) Chinese public security agents used a Hong Kong-based newspaper to announce its plans to try a prominent Christian human rights lawyer in China’s southern Hunan province tomorrow for subversion of state power.

Falsely charged with “subversion of state power,” Jiang Tianyong, a Christian who has used his attorney’s license to defend victims of China’s human rights abuses, will stand trial on Aug. 22. Agents from China’s Ministry of Public Security published details of the trial through the Hong Kong news source MingPao, proving that the Communist Party is now using some of the press in the former British colony as its propaganda mouthpieces.

The family has not yet received a notice of the trial, nor has one appeared on any of the state-controlled news sources inside China, including the court’s website.

On Friday, Jiang’s parents and sister went missing after authorities seized them and confiscated their cell phones, reportedly under the orders of the State Council. Currently, their whereabouts remain unknown.

Jiang first disappeared on Nov. 21, 2016, after boarding a train to return to his home in Beijing. He had been visiting the family of persecuted human rights lawyer Xie Yang in Changsha, Hunan.

Jiang’s wife, Jin Bianling, who now resides in the United States with the couple’s daughter and appeared before Congress on her husband’s behalf in June, said she would fight for her husband to the end.

ChinaAid exposes abuses, such as those experienced by Jiang Tianyong, in order to stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians and promote religious freedom, human rights, and rule of law.
