北京消息 北京时间2009年12月9日(星期三)下午4点半至6点,美国驻华大使洪博培在北京驻华大使馆会见了江天勇,李方平,张凯,王光泽和戴金波。今年秋天,这五位维权法律人在访问美国期间曾经见证并公布了中国有关当局对待维权律师的不公正待遇,使美国和世界人们进一步认识了中国的人权现状,以及维权律师所遭遇的艰难险阻。经验丰富的江天勇律师还呼吁汤姆兰托斯人权委员会,要求美国驻华大使馆官员经常会见在北京的人权律师,听取他们的心声,了解中国维权法律人工作的真实状况。

今年早些时候,超过22位维权律师被当局取消了职业执照。受害者江天勇律师曾经在奥巴马总统中国期间被当地警方骚扰和拘押,他的妻子被殴打,连幼小的女儿在学校也遭讯问和惊吓。中国社会科学院范亚峰博士今年秋天因“政治原因”遭当局解雇。范亚峰和李方平是目前代理高度敏感的山西临汾教案的律师。

洪博培大使是在中国维权工作处在极端关键的时刻会见了维权维权法律人。在90分钟的会谈中,洪博培大使与5位维权律师就中国和世界人权问题进行广泛的对话和交谈。5位维权维权法律人一致对中国宗教自由问题受到当局威胁表示严重关注。洪博培大使郑重提出:“中国家庭教会是中国民间社会和宗教运动最重要的,并且是健康的存在力量。”一位律师向洪博培大使指出,中国家庭教会的存在,始终艰难地面对中国政府的镇压。 律师们特别提到新疆维吾尔基督徒阿里木江最近遭遇的最严厉刑罚, 以及山西临汾教会受到血腥镇压并严酷刑罚的情况。

洪博培大使在细心听取了维权法律人的报告后指出,他们将与有关当局交涉,提出建设性的意见,以维护家庭教会的信仰自由和合法权益。洪博培大使最后说,他希望将来能够有机会继续会见中国维权法律人。

对华援助协会傅希秋会长指出:“洪博培大使在华工作的第一年就果敢地顶住压力,在非常敏感的时刻会见了5位勇敢的中国维权维权法律人,以事实和行动向世界见证了美国政府和人民维护人权的决心和 立场。我们希望美国大使将来能经常会见中国维权维权法律人,希望美国人民维护人权的灯塔能照亮中华神州大地。”

BEIJING--On Wednesday, December 9th (Beijing time), U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman met with five human rights defenders from 4:30 PM to 6 PM inside the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, all of whom visited the U.S. this fall. Throughout their tour, Jiang Tianyong, Li Fangping, Zhang Kai, Wang Guangze, and Dai Jinbo spoke out on the unjust treatment of Chinese human rights lawyers by the government, and raised awareness the minority cases they continue to defend. Veteran Attorney Jiang Tianyong even appealed to the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, asking American Embassy officials to meet with human rights lawyers in Beijing on a more regular, frequent basis.

L-R: Zhang Kai, Wang Guangze, Jiang Tianyong, Li Fangping, and Dai Jinbo spoke in the U.S. about the brutal treatment of human rights defenders and their cases in China. Click on their names or photos to read their testimonies.

Each lawyer and legal scholar has personal experienced repression for their work. Earlier this year, more than 22 Christian human rights lawyers lost or were denied their licenses to practice law--including Jiang Tianyong. Jiang, upon his return to China, was harassed for attempting to meet with President Obama during the U.S. leader's trip to Beijing. He and famed legal scholar Dr. Fan Yafeng were questioned and held for over an hour after their attempt, then escorted to their homes and held under surveillance. Jiang Tianyong was detained the next day, his wife beaten, and their daughter interrogated at school. Dr. Fan was dismissed this fall from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, purportedly for "political reasons." Human rights lawyer Zhang Kai was detained and beaten this spring for representing a minority case, and both he and Li Fangping are currently representing appeals for the highly sensitive Linfen Church case in Shanxi.

The U.S. Ambassador's meeting comes at a crucial time for human rights defenders in China. In their 90-minute meeting held in the Ambassador's office, Ambassador Huntsman asked the lawyers' advice for the upcoming human rights dialogue. All of the participants urged that religious freedom is the most important issue at stake. One lawyer pointed out to the Ambassador that the house church in China has the healthiest presence of all the religious movements, which makes it difficult for the Chinese government to suppress.

The lawyers specifically mentioned the severe sentence of Uyghur Christian Alimujiang Yimiti and the Linfen Church case.

Also, it was pointed out to the Ambassador, that given the recent articles in some Chinese government papers defending house churches, there are different opinions within government leadership circles on this issue. Some input could help shift the opinion in favor of more freedoms. The Ambassador concluded that he had learned a lot from the lawyers and expressed his hope that they could continue to have these meetings.

"This timely meeting--during Ambassador Huntsman's first year in his position, and in a year of such increased pressure on these brave human rights defenders--gives the world hope for increased attention to rights defense work in China," said Bob Fu, President of ChinaAid. "We, too, look forward to these future meetings on regular basis with the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. We hope the U.S. will continue to be a beacon of freedom in China."
