案件簡介:
李翹楚本科畢業於中國人民大學勞動人事學院,後於英國約克大學獲公共政策碩士學位,清華大學從事研究助理的工作。李翹楚長期參與、關注和研究中國大陸的勞工、女權和民間維權議題,包括關注2017年北京清理和驅逐「低端人口」時農民工的工作及住房權益,參加過#MeToo 運動。同時,她也是新公民運動發起人許志永的女友。

因為長期深度參與公民社會活動,她多次被國保和公安騷擾。 2019年6月確診抑鬱症,必須定時按醫囑服藥,但依然為女權和勞權問題奔走。 2019年12月初開始,她的住所外每日都有國保值班,並跟踪其上下班,嚴重侵犯其日常隱私與公民權利。

2020年2月15日,許志永被拘捕(許志永一案的連結),李翹楚在北京亦被公安帶走,被「指定監所監視居住」及禁止通訊拘留,無法聯絡家人也不得選擇委任律師,外界因此極為擔憂她可受遭到酷刑或其他不人道對待,至6月19日才獲取保候審。她把被秘密關押的經歷寫成《李翹楚:被連坐煽顛、指定監視居住的120天》系列文章,詳細講述了自己被關押期間所遭受的酷刑及不人道虐待,因此多次被威脅,警方甚至聲稱「隨時可以再把你抓進去判刑」,並被要求刪除推特上的相關內容。同時,李翹楚的父親也遭到警方的多次傳喚威脅。

李翹楚取保候審期間,仍堅持為許志永、丁家喜常瑋平等1226公民案中被關押的人士發聲,並維護自己的公民權利,她曾就北京市公安局在2020年11月26日以來的諸多違法行為公開提起控告,要求北京市檢察院依法監督並糾正北京市公安局的違法行為,並歸還其相關的法律文書及被非法扣押的個人物品。

2021年1月21日許志永的辯護律師梁小軍和張磊在山東省臨沭縣以視頻會見了與外界失聯達一年的許志永。李翹楚得知並公開了許志永在被指定居所監視居住期間,曾經遭到了10天被剝奪睡眠的虐待(其中前5天每天睡眠4個小時,後5天每天睡眠2個小時);在被匿名羈押在臨沭縣看守所,每天的伙食每頓只有1個饅頭等,因牢房冰冷而凍傷的境況後,於1月31日就伙食問題向臨沂市公安局寄出了政府信息公開申請,2月2日就伙食遠低於國家標準和高價買餐的問題對臨沭縣看守所進行了控告;同時李翹楚就案件偵查階段以飢餓作為酷刑控告臨沂市公安局。

2月6日,李翹楚被山東警方以涉嫌「顛覆國家政權罪」押往臨沂,3月15日正式被捕。 據了解,李現被監禁在臨沂市人民醫院東區的監所醫院,其親友因此擔憂李翹楚的抑鬱症及身體健康狀況。

Li Qiaochu graduated from the School of Labour and Human Resources of Renmin University of China, and later received a master’s degree in public policy from the University of York in the UK. She then worked as a research assistant at Tsinghua University, has long lobbied for and researched in labor, women’s rights and civil rights issues in Mainland China, including the rights to employment and housing of the migrant workers during the mass eviction of the so-called “low-end population” in Beijing in 2017. She has been a vocal figure in China’s #MeToo movement. At the same time, she is also the girlfriend of legal scholar Xu Zhiyong, the founder of the New Citizens’ Movement.

Her long-term involvement and commitment in civil society activities makes her the target of harassment by state security officers and police on many occasions. She was diagnosed with depression in June 2019 and since then, she must take medication regularly as prescribed. Yet she continued to fight for women’s rights and labour rights. Starting from December 2019, state security officers guarded outside her residence and followed her to work everyday, seriously infringing her privacy and civil rights.

On 15 February 2020, Xu Zhiyong was detained (Details of Xu Zhiyong’s case) in Guangdong Province. Li Qiaochu was also taken away by the police in Beijing and held under “residential surveillance in a designated location” for over four months. She was unable to contact her family or appoint a lawyer. Her family and friends feared that she might be subjected to torture or other inhumane treatment. On 19 June 2020, she was granted bail pending trial. She released a series of articles entitled “Li Qiaochu: 120 days of being detained for inciting subversion of state power and residential surveillance in a designated location”, detailing the torture and inhumane ill-treatment she had suffered. During those four months, she was repeatedly threatened by the police that she would be arbitrarily detainedagain and even sentenced to jail. The police also warned her to delete the contents of her Twitter account. Her father was threatened to report to the police station constantly.

During Li Qiaochu’s release on bail, she continued to voice out for Xu Zhiyong, Ding Jiaxi, and Chang Weiping and those detained due to the “1226 Crackdown”, and defending her own civil rights. She filed complaints at the Beijing Municipal Procuratorate, calling it to supervise and correct the violations by the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau, return certain legal documents and those illegally seized personal items to her. On 21 January 2021, Xu Zhiyong’s defense lawyers Liang Xiaojun and Zhang Lei finally met with Xu in Linshu County, Shandong Province, who had been out of contact with the outside world for a year. Li Qiaochu learned the details from this meeting and disclosed that Xu Zhiyong had suffered 10 days of sleep deprivation during residential surveillance in a designated location (including 4 hours of sleep a day for the first 5 days and 2 hours a day for the next 5 days); he was kept in custody anonymously, the Linshu County Detention Centre gave him only one steamed bun per meal each day; Xu got frostbite due to lack of heating in his cell and, etc. On 31 January 2021, she applied for information disclosure at the Linyi City Public Security Bureau. On 2 February, she sued the Linshu County Detention Centre for providing overpriced meals far below the national standards of meals for detainees; at the same time, she sued the Linyi City Public Security Bureau for using starvation as a form of torture in the investigation stage.

On 6 February, Li Qiaochu was taken to Linyi City on suspicion of “subverting state power" and formally arrested on 15 March 2021. It is reported that Li is detained in the prison hospital in the eastern wing of Linyi City People’s Hospital. Her family and friends are worried about Li Qiaochu’s depression and health.
