Following the death of human rights activist Cao Shunli, the FCO has called on authorities to allow all detainees proper medical care. Ms Shunli had been detained since September 2013 whilst travelling from China to attend human rights advocacy training in Geneva.
A Foreign Office spokesperson said:
We are saddened to hear that Chinese human rights activist Cao Shunli has died in detention, after she was reportedly denied medical treatment for serious illness. Ms Cao was a courageous activist who pressed for independent civil society involvement in China’s Universal Periodic Review process, and was detained in September 2013.
Members of the Human Rights Council are bound to uphold and promote the highest standards of human rights. We strongly urge the Chinese authorities to ensure all detainees have access to adequate medical care, and to release all those detained for exercising their constitutional rights to freedom of expression, association and assembly.
Death of Chinese Activist Cao Shunli
March 15, 2014
The United States is deeply disturbed by reports that rights activist
Cao Shunli has passed away at a hospital in Beijing. We offer our
condolences to her family.
Chinese authorities detained Cao Shunli in Beijing on September 14 while
she was on her way to participate in civil society meetings in
preparation for China’s Universal Periodic Review last October. We have
repeatedly raised our concerns about Cao Shunli’s detention, including
her deteriorating health, with Chinese authorities.
We continue to be concerned about the human rights situation in China
and will continue to urge Chinese authorities to guarantee all Chinese
citizens the protections and freedoms to which they are entitled under
China's international human rights commitments. [博讯首发,转载请注明出处]- 支持此文作者/记者
