Hidden in Detention: Vanishing Suspects

Hidden in Detention: Vanishing Suspects (2019). This brief report exposes, for the first time, how it has become common for police to force prisoners in pre-trial detention centres to use a false name. This effectively disappears the victim, cutting them off from contact with their lawyer and their families and erasing their case from the legal database. Hidden in detention is yet another form of enforced disappearance in China.
