It’s been a year and a half since Safeguard Defenders started assisting victims to hold China’s Party-State TV station, CCTV, responsible for broadcasting illegal and human rights-abusing forced confessions across the globe.

Safeguard Defenders has filed an ethics complaint with UNAIDS against one of its long-standing "goodwill ambassadors.

It’s not been a good week for China’s Communist Party-controlled overseas TV station China Global Television Network (CGTN).

UNwatch calls the World Health Organization to task for its use of CCP-aligned “goodwill ambassadors” , while the WHO also fails to respond to an ethics complaint filed much earlier by Safeguard Defenders.

Update: After almost two and a half years of being disappeared, news emerges that human rights lawyer Yu Wensheng was sentenced to four years.

In early April, the UN announced plans to partner with Tencent, one of China's leading surveillance and censorship enterprises. Safeguard Defenders was among several groups that raised human rights concerns about this plan.

Safeguard Defenders, with 87 other NGOs and parties, submitted evidence and recommendations to an Australian parliamentary committee set up to debate the adoption of a 'Magnitsky Act' to target human rights abusers worldwide.
