Justice requires open and transparent proceedings. Show trials and kangaroo courts deny access to lawyers and families and are a mockery of justice. The rule of law is not the same as rule by law.

The Chinese Communist Party have announced that the trial of ten of the arrested Hong Kong 12 will commence on December 28th. The International community including the U.K. should carefully monitor the proceedings – which are likely to be held in secret.

The Hong Kong 12 – who include Portuguese, Vietnamese and U.K. passport holders – have been held incommunicado for 4 months and denied lawyers of their choice. Families have been barred from observing the proceedings .
Grandma Wong urges the world to support the Hong Kong 12 – denied access to their lawyers and families.

For the sake of women like Rahima Mahmut, Gulzira Auelkhan, Sayragul Sauytbay, and Ruqiye Perhat – whose heart-breaking, shocking, stories are recorded here – it’s time that the crime of genocide was given definition in the UK. On January 19th Parliament can use its voice and speak that name – insisting on justice for victims of Genocide and refusing to make tawdry trade deals with those responsible for the crime above all crimes.
