【Video】Chinese Rights Lawyers Abused and Kidnapped

A Chinese rights lawyer who defended Falun Gong practitioners has fallen ill after being abused in prison, rights groups reported this week. Wang Yonghang was given a seven year sentence in 2009. His wife says he is now partially paralyzed but authorities have refused to admit him to hospital. 
 
Wang Yonghang is currently held at the Shenyang No. 1 Prison in northeastern Liaoning Province. His wife told advocate group Chinese Human Rights Defenders, or CHRD, that she recently saw Wang in prison—the first time she was allowed to since his sentence. She says Wang has suffered abuse in prison, and has developed tuberculosis and fluid accumulation in his lungs. He also has no feeling below his waist. Despite his critical condition, Wang has not been allowed to obtain medical assistance. 
 
Wang was arrested in 2009 after taking on several Falun Gong cases. The Chinese regime has persecuted the Falun Gong spiritual practice since 1999, and severely restricts lawyers from defending victims of the persecution. CHRD reports that Wang suffered a fractured ankle during his arrest, and was force fed and beaten in prison. 
 
U.S. rights lawyer Ye Ning has condemned the Chinese regime’s treatment of Wang.
 
[Ye Ning, Human Rights Lawyer]:
“It is heinous that the Chinese government carries out such inhumane political persecution on lawyers who upholds justice to defend Falun Gong practitioners. The lawyers are just doing their work, and following their professional ethics. The laws they follow are also laws prescribed by the People’s Republic of China.”
 
In May, another lawyer was kidnapped for defending Falun Gong practitioners, this time in Heilongjiang Province. Wei Liangyue has been missing for nearly two weeks. His wife told NTD that authorities initially refused to disclose what happened to Wei, but eventually admitted he was taken by the 610 Office. The 610 Office is the Chinese Communist Party''s extra-government apparatus created to crack down on Falun Gong.
