China: 12 Hongkongers held incommunicado in China
Twelve Hongkongers, including pro-democracy activists, were arrested on 23 August 2020 by the Chinese coast guard for allegedly crossing the border between Hong Kong and China in secret in a speedboat. Held incommunicado, without access to their family and lawyers of their choice, they are at imminent risk of torture and other ill-treatment. Four family-hired lawyers from mainland China dropped the cases after they were threatened by authorities.
