[1] Criminal Detention: The names in this list are all criminally detained but their locations and charges are unknown. According to China’s Criminal Procedural Law, when police detains someone, they have to present a warrant. They should immediately send the detainee to the detention centre within 24 hours. Unless the family cannot be notified or the detainee is in suspicion of endangering national security crimes, terrorist activities and such notification would impede the investigation, within 24 hours, the family of the detainee should be notified. If the circumstances that would impede the investigation has stopped, the family of the detainee should be immediately notified.

[2] “Residential surveillance" is one of the enforcement measures prescribed in the PRC Criminal Procedure Law (CPL, Articles 64, 69, 72-75). Article 73 of the CPL states that “Residential confinement shall be executed at the residence of a criminal suspect or defendant; or may be executed at a designated residence if the criminal suspect or defendant has no fixed residence. Where execution of residential confinement at the residence of a criminal suspect or defendant in a case regarding compromising national security, terrorist activities, or extraordinarily significant bribery may obstruct criminal investigation, it may be executed at a designated residence with the approval of the people's procuratorate or public security authority at the next higher level. However, residential confinement may not be executed at a place of custody or a place specially used for handling cases.” According to our experience, the coercive measures would lead to torture easily.
