Don’t forget Kegui!
No family member has been able to reach him. He’s likely been tortured, and if convicted, he could face the death penalty. Authorities are forcing him to accept government-controlled lawyers—denying him the independent lawyers we’ve tried to retain.
- Contact family members
- To be represented by the lawyers of his choice
UPDATE: According to Human Rights first, Michael Posner, Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, has affirmed that the State Department has urged and will continue to urge the Chinese government to stop persecuting Kegui. Despite these good efforts, however, the Chinese government continues to detain Kegui and to deny him access to his family and lawyers.
Until China stops holding Kegui hostage, the U.S. government must continue to press his case in all of its dealings with China.
