【廣西維權律師陳家鴻遭連環打壓】

廣西維權律師陳家鴻在4月29日被大批公安帶走,事件可能與他近日的書法有關。現時以涉嫌煽動顛覆國家政權罪被刑事拘留。

陳家鴻在轉所調動被拖延了兩年六個月後,4月29日當天也正式註銷了其律師執業證。他早前就轉所調動提出申請,但一直被官方拖延。

N.B.: Lawyer Chen is under criminal detention on suspicion of “inciting subversion of state power.” His practising license was invalidated at the same time (his request to change the law firm was delayed for 2 years and 6 months by the authorities.)
