Human rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong, despite being arbitrarily disbarred in 2009, continued his rights defence work as a legal consultant for victims of power abuses. He disappeared on 21 November 2016. The authorities admitted on 23 December that he was under residential surveillance at designated location. None of his lawyers or family members has seen him by far, and his whereabouts remains unknown.
