(Beijing—Sept. 10, 2019) Chinese human rights lawyer Tang Jingling was taken back to his hometown recently after being detained for more than 10 days.

The attorney, who recently finished a five-year prison sentence on account of his defense of those targeted by the Chinese Communist Party, had just sought a visa to go to New York City as a visiting scholar. According to a recent report received by ChinaAid, Tang has been escorted back to his hometown in the nation’s Hubei province.

ChinaAid will continue to report on Tang’s case as more information becomes available.
