CHINA - Activists and petitioners held in China's psychiatric hospitals [AN]


The authorities continue to lock up and feed drugs to those who struggle for citizens’ rights, a practice that violates China’s own laws. Under the latter in fact, only certified psychiatrists (not government officials) can have someone committed. One of the cases involves a 71-year-old activist held in hospital and fed drugs. In others, some inmates are subjected to electroshock.
