, Index number: ASA 17/021/2007

Yang Maodong (also known as Guo Feixiong), held in Guangzhou No.1 detention centre, Guangdong Province, southern China, has reportedly been tortured in police custody in an apparent attempt to make him confess to charges of 'illegal business dealings'. The abuse has reportedly driven him to attempt suicide. He is scheduled to appear in court on 15 June, and there are grave concerns that he will not receive a fair trial.
