人權團體呼籲各國政府和老撾當局確保中國人權律師盧思位被立即釋放

Comments Off on 人權團體呼籲各國政府和老撾當局確保中國人權律師盧思位被立即釋放

 

英文版 據報導,老撾當局自 2023 年 7 月 28 日起逮捕並拘留了著名的中國人權律師盧思位。我們對盧律師面臨被強制遣返中國,並很可能因而受到酷刑和其他虐待,表示嚴重關切。 多個東南亞國家經常受壓,被迫將弱勢群體強行遣返中國,並因此面臨任意拘留、不公平審判、酷刑和其他虐待等風險。各地人權團體有衆多相關紀錄,從 2009 年維吾爾人從柬埔寨被強制遣返,到 2022 年 8 月中國民主活動家董廣平從越南失踪,後被發現遭受中國拘留。書商桂民海2015年在泰國失踪後,其後在中國露面,卻無法出示護照。事實上這些人都經歷了長時間的強迫失踪,其家人和同事往往要在多個月或甚或多年後才能取得他們的信息。 我們敦促第三方政府: 要求老撾當局立即停止遣返盧思位,並迅速採取行動,確保他能夠接觸聯合國人員和他選擇的律師;並 公開呼籲中國當局撤銷針對盧思位的任何潛在指控。 老撾政府一旦將盧思位移交給中國當局,即意味將盧置於遭受酷刑和非人道待遇的嚴重風險。聯合國人權專家已多次指出,中國政府經常對人權捍衛者和律師施以酷刑和非人道待遇。[1] 根據國際習慣法,並自 2012 年 9 月起作為《聯合國禁止酷刑和其他殘忍、不人道或有辱人格的待遇或處罰公約》(CAT) 的締約國,老撾人民民主共和國政府負有《禁止酷刑公約》第 3 條規定的不驅回義務,不將任何人遣返他極有可能遭受酷刑的國家。 我們敦促老撾政府: 根據國際人權義務,立即中止遣返盧思位的一切程序並釋放他; 安排他會見聯合國有關官員和他自己選擇的律師; 根據需要允許他會見美國和其他國家的外交官員,幫助他繼續前往美國與家人團聚的旅程;以及 在上述情況得到實踐之前,公開其所在,並確保其人身安全和身心健康。 盧思位是中國著名的人權律師和捍衛者,為弱勢群體發聲,並曾代表眾多政治異見人士。中國當局近年對權利倡導越來越不容忍,他們對盧律師進行恐嚇和騷擾,包括於 2021 年 1 月以其網上言論涉嫌“危害國家安全”為借口,吊銷其律師資格。盧律師更在前往相關聽證會途中,遭到襲擊。此後,盧思位一直受到中國當局的密切監控,並自2021年5月起被禁制出境。 據了解,盧思位律師是次過境老撾,是要前往美國與家人團聚。 [1] E/C.12/CHN/CO/3, 经济、社会及文化权利委员会 关于中国(包括中国香港和中国澳门) 第三次定期报告的结论 性意见, 2023年3月22日;CAT/C/CHN/CO/5 禁止酷刑委员会 关于中国第五次定期报告的结论性意见*, 2016年2月3日
