Zhengzhou Police posted a status of Lawyer Ren Quaniu’s “Confession Statement” on its official Weibo yesterday around noon, saying Lawyer Ren’s attitude towards his own “crime” is “positive and direct”, so changing his “criminal compulsory measures” into “released on bail”. It is said that Lawyer Ren has arrived home safely.
Lawyers in China addressed that Zhengzhou Police’s behaviour violate the law which without any legal bases: the current status of Lawyer Ren is only a “criminal suspect”, the police must guarantee all evidences are confidential; bdesides, the case is under interrogation, the “confession statement” is only a deposition， even defense lawyer cannot access it.
