Date: 2014-07-07

(New York) – Chinese lawyers Chang Boyang (常伯阳) and Ji Laisong (姬来松), who were arrested last week on charges of “suspicion of illegal commercial activities” and “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” respectively, should be immediately released from custody and all charges against them should be dropped, the Committee to Support Chinese Lawyers said today. According to reports, the two lawyers were formally arrested along with five other activists on July 2 in Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan province. Until then, they had been held in Zhengzhou without formal arrest for over a month since being detained in the days leading up to the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown of June 4, 1989.
