Director of Nanhai District Detention Centre
Please allow me to draw your attention to the case of Su Changlan, who was sentenced to three years in prison on 13 March 2017 for her online criticism of the Communist Party and the government. She has been unlawfully detained since October 2014 at Nanhai District Detention Centre.
I urge you to ask the Chinese authorities to immediately and unconditionally release Su Changlan as she has been imprisoned solely for exercising her right to freedom of expression.
I further call on you to ensure that, pending her release, she has regular access to her family and lawyers, and any medical treatment she may require.
Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter.
I am kindly awaiting your reply.
