中國:「樂平冤案」4名死囚獲再審後 被判無罪釋放

方春平、黄志强、程發根及程立和於2003年在受到酷刑下被迫他們從未干犯的罪行,被中國景德鎮中級人民法院判處死刑。經過多番上訴後,於2016年12月21日的重審被判無罪,四人當庭獲釋。13年後,他們重獲自由。
 
江西高級人民法院於2016年11月30日進行閉門重審,並認為證據有犯駁之處,導致證供的可靠性成疑,故此判他們無罪。

CHINA: NOT-GUILTY VERDICT FOR MEN SENTENCED TO DEATH

After more than 13 years since Huang Zhiqiang , Fang Chunping, Cheng Fagen and Cheng Lihe were originally sentenced to death, the Jiangxi Provincial Higher People’s Court has announced a not-guilty verdict. All four men were immediately released after a closed-door retrial on 30 November 2016.
 
Huang Zhiqiang, Fang Chunping, Cheng Fagen and Cheng Lihe were all sentenced to death in 2003, by the Jingdezhen Intermediate People’s Court in the central province of Jiangxi in China. After an appeal which they were given a death sentence with a two year reprieve in 2006, they were given a retrial which was held in 2016. 
 
Following a closed-door retrial, the Court ruled on 21 December 2016 that there were contradictions in the evidence,  that the authenticity and legality of the men’s confessions were uncertain. As a result, the Jiangxi Provincial Higher People’s Court announced a not-guilty verdict and released all four men immediately.

The 10-day art exhibition Carnival has come to a successful end on 26 February 2017!

We believe that the Freedom of Expression themed workshops have helped participants to explore in a different perspective the relationships between human rights, art and education. We sincerely thank you for everyone’s support. All proceeds from the fundraising dinners and online auction are essential contributions to our human rights education programmes in schools and communities.

3月初,我們就法改會《涉及兒童及精神缺損人士的性罪行》諮詢文件呈交意見書。是次性罪行改革與兒童和殘疾人士攸關,改革建議應符合《兒童權利公約》及《殘疾人權利公約》。當局亦應提供簡易圖文版等措施,以便持份者有效參與諮詢。

We filed a submission to the Law Reform Commission on sexual offences involving children and persons with mental impairment in early March. As this review is highly relevant to children and persons with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities, the recommendations should conform to The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The Commission should fully consult the stakeholders by adopting measures to facilitate active participation such as providing easy-read reports.
