案件簡介: 公安於2019年5月28日在江蘇南京市帶走原籍湖北的劉進興及另外五名藝術家,並於翌日刑事拘留劉進興。公安搜查劉在北京的家,充公他的藝術作品和一些印刷品。另五名藝術家其後獲釋取保候審。

他的朋友相信劉進興被拘留的原因,是與政府在「六四」30周年前打壓維權人士有關。在維權人士和藝術家圈子,大家都知道劉進興售賣作品以支援其他被拘留維權人士。

劉進興2019年9月23日才首次獲准會見律師,之前要求會見律師全被當局拒絕,公安以他的案件涉及危害國家安全為由拒絕會見。劉進興律師在會見劉時才獲知劉已被正式逮捕,罪名是「尋釁滋事」。

2020年1月14日,南京市玄武區檢察院正式起訴劉進興,並列出他的所謂罪名為製作視頻和藝術作品支持被拘留的政治犯。他的庭審定於2020年8月13日於玄武區法院舉行。

劉進興曾因他的作品和維權活動被拘禁,包括2014年10月因以行為藝術支持香港「雨傘運動」被拘留,直至2015年7月才被除去所有罪名獲釋。劉進興曾住在著名的北京通州區宋莊藝術區。

Sentence:
Location of detention/imprisonment: Nanjing No. 3 Detention Centre, Jiangsu Province

Description: Police took away Liu, a Hubei province born artist, on 28 May 2019, along with five other artists in Nanjing, Jiangsu, and criminally detained him the next day. Police officers searched Liu’s home in Beijing, confiscating his artworks and some printed materials. The other five artists were subsequently released on bail.

His friends believed that Liu Jinxing’s detention was related to the government’s crackdown on activists before the commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre. Among the activists and artists circle, he was famous for selling his artworks to help support other detained political activists.

Liu Jinxing was only allowed his first lawyer’s visit on 23 September 2019. His previous requests were denied as the police claimed that his case involved “endangering state security”. The lawyer learned during the visit that Liu had been formally arrested on charges of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble”.

On 14 January 2020, Xuanwu District Procuratorate in Nanjing indicted Liu and listed his “crimes” as producing videos and artworks to support detained political prisoners. His trial is scheduled to take place at Xuanwu District Court on 13 August 2020.

Liu had been detained for several times for his art and activism, including being detained in October 2014 for his performance art to support the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong. He was released in July 2015 after being clear of criminal charges. Liu has lived in the Songzhuang art colony in Songzhuang Town of Tongzhou District in Beijing, the most famous and largest artist community in the municipality.
