Court case number: Ö 2479-19.

This post provides details from the Swedish Supreme Court’s verdict today ruling that Chinese fugitive Qiao Jianjun should not be extradited to China. The full verdict is only available in Swedish (available here). Read the Supreme Court’s summary in English here.

上个月,本质上被隔离关押的余文生律师活动人士甄江华,二位都被报道“解雇”了他们的律师。这些律师是在他们被捕之前预先指定的,或者是由信任的家人所聘请的。听起来很可疑对吧?其实众所周知,警方会强迫被拘留者,特别对那些懂得法律如何运作的维权人士,撤销他们自己选择律师的权利。 我们知道要么是警方威胁了他们,或者是伪造了他们的笔迹。因为在被拘留前,二位都提前准备了表示永远不会放弃选择自己律师的权利的声明:余律师是用视频,甄江华则是将文字写在纸上。 他们的行为是中国日益增长的趋势中的一部分,许多人权捍卫者会预先准备先发制人的视频或声明,表明一旦他们失去自由,他们的行为将不是自由选择,一旦被拘留,你就无法发声了。

Last month, lawyer Yu Wensheng (余文生) and activist Zhen Jianghua (甄江华) , both essentially in incommunicado detention, reportedly “sacked” their legal counsel. These are lawyers they pre-appointed in case they were detained, or trusted family members had hired. Sound suspicious?
