(Link contains descriptions of domestic violence)This is Li Yan, a 41 year-old woman facing imminent execution for killing her violent husband after months of abuse the police failed to protect her from.
If you have time today, please consider emailing the National People’s Congress Standing Committee Chairman, WU Bangguo Weiyuanzhang, at email@example.com, to ask for clemency for Li Yan.
Send your message as an attachment to the email. Write politely and without political comment:
- Urging the Chinese authorities not to implement Li Yan’s death sentence;
- Calling on them to ensure that Li Yan has access to her family;
- Urging the National People’s Congress to introduce a legal procedure for requesting clemency in line with China’s obligations under international human rights law
- Urging the Chinese authorities to take all allegations of domestic violence seriously, conduct effective investigations and, where there is sufficient admissible evidence, prosecute suspects in fair trials.
If you live in the UK, you can email your appeal to the Chinese Ambassador, His Excellency Liu Xiaoming, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For full details and postal addresses, download the casesheet
