In a September 20 post online, lawyer Sui Muqing says that his wife, lawyer Sun Shihua, was beaten and illegally detained by the police at Hualin police substation, Liwan District in Guangzhou. She had gone to the substation at about 3 PM to speak with the police officer in charge of her client’s case. Lawyer Sui called 110 (the police emergency phone number) to request police be sent to the substation to investigate. However, 110 first refused to send out police, and then told him that if he dialed the number more than a certain number of times, he would be charged with disrupting police work. But Sui kept calling until 110 finally sent out police officers to the substation to make a record for Sun Shihua. Sun had not been released until her husband posted this news.
Sui Muqing’s lawyer's license was revoked in the beginning of this year due to his representation of many rights defense cases.
