Lawyer Yu Wensheng Accuses Municipal Bureau of Justice of Illegally Depriving Him of the Right to Practice Law

July 23, 2017

Lawyer Yu Wensheng filed a criminal complaint with the Beijing Municipal Procuratorate requesting that Miao Lin, the Director of the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Justice, and others involved be held legally accountable for abusing their power in using the annual renewal of law licenses to suppress lawyers. The complaint argues that after taking office as Director of the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Justice in November 2016, Miao Lin has continued to suppress human rights lawyers. After May 2017, the month of the annual review (annual inspection), which many lawyers consider unlawful, Miao Lin and his subordinates also used their official power to cooperate with different levels of Chinese law enforcement bureaus such as the police, procuratorate, courts, detention centers, and other powerful units, to refuse to issue the annual licensing renewal inspection approval stamp to some law firms and some lawyers, so as to restrict lawyers from their normal practice. When Lawyer Yu Wensheng handed in his lawyers’ license for annual renewal, it was illegally confiscated.

Lawyer Yu Wensheng is the defense attorney of lawyer Wang Quanzhang, who was arrested during the 709 crackdown and is still in custody.


刑事调查建议函

调查建议人:余文生,1967年11月11日出生,北京市人,律师,住北京市石景山区八角北路24栋107室。

被建议调查人:张军,司法部部长。

调查事项:滥用职权

事实和理由:

2017年自张军任职司法部部长以来,全国各地司法行政机关继续采取对律师群体高压管控,对以捍卫人权法治为己任的、勇于担当社会责任的律师继续打压。张军治下的各地司法行政机关、律师协会采取约谈威胁恐吓、不给律师盖年审备案章、扣押律师执业证等方式对付那些拥有正义感的律师和律师事务所。公然破坏中国法治,言依法治国、依法治律,行依警治国、依警治律。

以下部分事实列举:1、北京余文生律师律师证年审被卡,执业证曾被扣押,律师事务所被逼迫和余文生律师解除聘用合同。司法局告知部分律师事务所不许接收余文生。2、北京黎雄兵律师被云南省红塔区检察院发检察建议,北京某律协对此事展开调查。3、湖南文东海律师被云南省高院投诉,律协在调查。4、浙江吴有水律师仅因网上发表言论,杭州市律协,对吴律师立案调查。5、上海李明律师因办理信仰案件,受到律协和所在律所的双重打压,律协逼迫原所解聘李明,李明新找所迫于压力不敢接收,据说各地律协对上海律协的这个办法如获至宝,正纷纷前往取经。6、上海彭永和律师因代理敏感案件被停业处罚。7、广西百举鸣律师事务所全体律师在2017年年检时受到律协逼迫和打压,最后该所律师签订了不再办理敏感案件的承诺才勉强通过年审,但据说该所还是被处罚了。8、广西陈家鸿律师因代理一起看守所非正常死亡案件处理,最后被停业处罚。9、2017年年审全国各地如北京、广西、黑龙江、河南等地律师年审被无故延迟。很多律师年审被卡。10、河北韩庆芳律师和四川詹肇成律师正面临刑事指控。(以上信息网上获得,可能略有出入)等等……。

全国各地司法行政机关大规模涉嫌滥用职权,作为其上级司法部部长张军具有不可推卸的责任。为此,余文生特建议最高检察院依法调查张军是否具有滥用职权的行为及责任。

此致
