China: Submission to the NPC Standing Committee’s Legislative Affairs Commission on the Draft “Supervision Law”

, Index number: ASA 17/7553/2017

The Draft Law would legalize a form of arbitrary detention and create a new extra-judicial system with far reaching powers that has significant potential to infringe human rights.
