One year on, the CCBE denounces once again the crackdown on Chinese lawyers

The CCBE has once again written to denounce the crackdown on lawyers in China.
Saturday 9 July 2016 marked the one-year anniversary of the so-called “709 crackdown” which began with the detention of rights lawyer Wang Yu and her family, and led onto hundreds of lawyers, law firm staff, and family members being subject to intimidation, interrogation, detention as criminal suspects, and forced disappearances.
