China: The Olympics countdown: Repression of activists overshadows death penalty and media reforms
Amnesty International remains deeply concerned that several senior Chinese officials continue to use 'strike hard' policies to constrain the legitimate activities of a range of peaceful activists, including journalists, lawyers and human rights defenders. This report updates concerns in these areas, illustrated by the experiences of several individuals who have been detained or imprisoned in violation of their fundamental human rights. The failure of the Chinese authorities to address the legal and institutional weaknesses that allow such violations to flourish continues to hamper efforts to strengthen rule of law in China.
