Medical letter writing action: People's Republic of China: Li Guiren
AI is concerned about reports which suggest that Li Guiren, 49-year-old editor-in-chief of the Hua Yue Literature and Art Publishing House in Shaanxi Province, is suffering from heart disease, gallstones and loss of teeth. His health has apparently deteriorated markedly in recent months and he has lost more than 10 kilos in weight. AI is concerned that he appears still to be deprived of adequate medical care. The organization believes that he is a prisoner of conscience, imprisoned for his peaceful pro- democracy activities, and as such should be released and given immediate access to all necessary medical care.
