Medical letter writing action: People's Republic of China: Wang Wanxing, Wang Miaogen and Xing Jiandong
AI is concerned about three men forcibly confined to psychiatric hospitals in China following their arrest in 1992 and 1993. Wang Miaogen and Xing Jiandong were arrested in Shanghai in 1993 where they are currently confined to police-run psychiatric hospitals; Wang Wanxing was arrested in Beijing in June 1992 and is confined there in a police-run hospital. Two of the men have already been imprisoned on political grounds. AI is concerned that they are being confined for political rather than for genuine medical reasons.
