PEN Guatemala pide su liberación inmediata

His Excellency Xi Jinping
President of the People’s Republic of China
State Council
Beijing 100032
P.R. China

Your Excellency:

         PEN Guatemala calls for her immediate and unconditional release if, as reported, Gao Yu  is being persecuted for her legitimate professional activities;

We remind the Chinese authorities that Article 35 of the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China provides for freedom of speech and that as a signatory to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which provides for freedom of legitimate expression, the right not to be arbitrarily detained and the right to a fair trial, they are obliged to “refrain from acts that would defeat or undermine the treaty’s objective and purpose”.
