China: Submission to the NPC Standing Committee's Legislative Affairs Commission on the second draft Foreign Non-Governmental Organizations Management Law
Upon careful examination of the provisions of the proposed law, Amnesty International’s position is that the law would run counter to China’s national and international obligations to safeguard the rights to freedom of association, peaceful assembly and expression. The law would also jeopardize the activities or existence of numerous organizations that are advancing the realization of economic, social, cultural, civil and political rights of people in China. Amnesty International urges the Chinese government to withdraw this draft. Should the government decide that a law is truly needed, it should introduce a new draft that is compatible with human rights obligations.
