People's Republic of China: Li Wenming and Guo Baosheng sentenced in Guangdong Province
On 30 May 1997 the Shenzhen Intermediate People's Court sentenced two labour rights activists, Li Wenming and Guo Baosheng, to three and a half years' imprisonment on charges of subversion. Amnesty International considers the two men to be prisoners of conscience, arbitrarily detained for the peaceful exercise of fundamental human rights, and is calling for their immediate and unconditional release. There is further concern at reports that Li Wenming is suffering from acute kidney damage and has not received appropriate medical treatment in detention.
