國際特赦代表7月訪港

Beijing   So   silent   on   fate   of   dissident

REPEATED   requests   for   the   early   release   of   jailed   Hongkong   dissident   Mr.   Lau   Shan-ching   by   London   based   Amnesty   International   have   been   greeted   with   silence   by   the   Chinese   authorities,   writes   Stanley   Leung.

This   was   disclosed   by   the   deputy   secretary-general   of   the   human   rights   group,   Mr.   Larry   Cox,   who   said   that   Chinese   officials   have   failed   to   respond   to   pleas   for   Mr.   Lau's   release   from   a   Guangdong   jail.

Mr.   Lau,   a   Hongkong   engineer,   was   sentenced   to   10   years'   imprisonment   by   a   Guangdong   court   in   1982   for   counter-revolutionary   charges   which   have   never   been   specified.

Mr.   Cox   said   Amnesty   had   been   working   hard   for   his   release   over   the   last   few   years   and   had   classified   him   as   a   prisoner   of   conscience.

Mr.   Cox   arrived   in   Hongkong   on   Sunday   for   a   five-day   visit   to   lobby   for   more   human   rights   protections   in   the   Basic   Law   after   1997.

He   said   Amnesty   was   also   concerned   that   future   Hongkong   residents   be   protected   against   the   detention   of   prisoners   of   conscience   and   vowed   that   his   group   would   monitor   closely   events   in   the   territory   leading   up   to   and   after   1997.   "Our   group   has   a   research   department   to   study   human   rights   violations   everywhere,   China,"   he   said.
