Access Denied: China's False Freedom

Access Denied: China's False Freedom (2021) is the first in-depth study of the Non-Release Release (NRR) phenomenon in China, in which prisoners, freed from jail or a detention centre, continue to be arbitrarily detained by the police at their home, at a hotel or in a secret location for weeks, months or even years. The report features interviews with victims and their families and analyses data on NRR including where it is most often imposed and the excuses given by police for this illegal extension of imprisonment.
