Kina: Frigiven men under konstant övervakning

Jiang Tianyong är en välkänd människorättsadvokat i Kina som har drivit flera uppmärksammade fall. Den 21 november 2017 dömdes han till två års fängelse för statsfientlig uppvigling. I fängelset försämrades hans hälsa drastiskt.
I februari 2019 frigavs Jiang Tianyong men han är utsatt för en konstant övervakning och trakasserier från myndigheterna. Vid ett tillfälle rusade en grupp poliser in i hemmet och filmade en privat middag och lade sig i middagssamtalet. När Jiang Tianyong rör sig utomhus följs han av en grupp okända personer.
Hans fru, Jin Bianling, uppger att maken inte vågar söka läkarvård då han befarar att övervakarnas närvaro kan påverka den diagnos han får.

Dear Director,

Human rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong was released from prison on 28 February this year. However, he remains under heavy surveillance. Everywhere he goes he is closely followed by a group of unidentified people.

Since his release Jiang Tianyong has needed a medical check-up, but has been unable to schedule an appointment out of concern that the presence of unidentified people will influence the medical care he receives. As he is banned from leaving China, he cannot seek medical care overseas. Consequences of being tortured in prison continue to impact Jiang Tianyong’s health, and he is in urgent need of adequate healthcare.

Therefore I urge you to stop the surveillance and restrictions of freedom of movement on Jiang Tianyong and his family, and ensure that he has unrestricted access to medical care.

Yours Sincerely,

Vietnam: Tortyr för att få fram bekännelse

Journalisten och människorättsförsvararen Nguyen Van Hoa har utsatts för tortyr i An Diem-fängelset i Vietnam och hålls i isoleringscell som straff för att han vägrar erkänna sig skyldig till ”statsfientlig propaganda”. Nguyen Van Hoa arbetade på den vietnamesiska redaktionen på Radio Free Asia. När stålverket Formosa sommaren 2016 orsakade en miljökatastrof i vattnen i centrala Vietnam utbröt omfattande protester som besvarades med kravallpolis och gripanden. Nguyen Van Hoa var på plats och bevakade händelserna.

I januari 2017 greps han och vid en hemlig rättegång i november 2017 dömdes han till sju års fängelse.

Your Excellency,

Allow me to express my concern about the treatment of Nguyen Van Hoa, a journalist and human rights defender, imprisoned solely for exercising his right to freedom of expression.

Nguyen Van Hoa was arrested in January 2017 after covering a public demonstration on the Formosa environmental disaster. In a secret trial in November 2017 he was convicted and sentenced to seven years in prison on the charge of “conducting propaganda against the state”. According to information Nguyen Van Hoa has been tortured by prison officials and placed in solitary confinement.

I urge Your Excellency to immediately and unconditionally release Nguyen Van Hoa imprisoned solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression, and pending his release, ensure that he is is protected from torture and other ill-treatment while in prison and that there is a prompt and impartial investigation into allegations of torture

Yours respectfully,

Iran: Ahmadreza Djalali behöver vård

Den iransk-svenske forskaren Ahmadreza Djalali behöver omedelbart få specialistvård som inte är tillgänglig i fängelset. Djalali, som är forskare vid Karolinska institutet, greps vid en resa till Iran i april 2016. Han dömdes i oktober 2017 till döden som israelisk spion. Iransk TV visade i december 2018 en film där Ahmadreza Djalali påstods erkänna sig skyldig.

Under tiden i fängelse har han gått ner 24 kilo och väger nu 51 kilo.

Dear Mr Ali Alghasi Mehr,
Allow me to express my profound concern for Iraninan-Swedish citizen Dr Ahmadreza Djalali, imprisoned in Tehran’s Evin prison. He is being denied the urgent specialized medical care he needs. Different blood tests indicates that he has a low white blood cell count. After an examination in early 2019 it was recommended that Dr Ahmadreza Djalali be seen by doctors specialized in haematology and oncology in a hospital outside of prison.

On two occasions a transfer was scheduled to a hospital outside of prison to see a specialist, but conditioned that Dr Djalali be shackled and wearing a prison uniform. He protested against these degrading conditions and, in reprisal, the authorities cancelled the transfer. These conditions seems to be deliberately designed to humiliate and punish him, and violates the absolute prohibition on cruel, inhuman or degrading treatments under international law.

I call for the immediate release of Dr Ahmadreza Djalali, and in the meantime that he be granted the specialized medical care he needs outside prison.

Yours sincerely,
