The Conservative Party Human Rights Commission will  hold a new hearing on human rights in China, as a follow-up to our 2016 inquiry and our report “The Darkest Moment: The Crackdown on Human Rights in China 2013-2016”.

On Wednesday 18 April, from 5-7pm, in Room M, Portcullis House, we will hold a hearing on human rights in China, where we will hear from two Chinese witnesses: Mr. Bingwu Wang, brother of prominent Christian democracy leader Dr Bingzhang Wang who was kidnapped from Vietnam 15 years ago and was sentenced to life in jail since then, and Ms ChingYu Li, wife of human rights defender Mr. Ming-Che Lee from Taiwan who was the first prisoner of conscience from Taiwan in China. He was sentenced to five years in 2017. We will also hear from Bob Fu, founder and President of China Aid.

Our hearings are open to the public, unless otherwise stated. Some sessions may be closed for security reasons if necessary.
