China: Further Information on Incommunicado detention / fear of torture and other ill-treatment, Huang Qi (m)

, Index number: ASA 17/025/2009

During a 26 May visit by his lawyer, Sichuan human rights activist Huang Qi claimed that he had been questioned for long hours and sometimes deprived of sleep: he had once been interrogated continuously for three days without rest. Huang Qi said he had two tumours, diagnosed by the doctor in the detention centre, on his stomach and chest that had developed since March. He also said that he was suffering from frequent headaches, an irregular heartbeat and insomnia. Amnesty International is concerned that Huang Qi may not be receiving adequate medical treatment.
