Minitrue: Delete Profile of Pu Zhiqiang’s Wife Meng Qun

Minitrue: Delete Profile of Pu Zhiqiang’s Wife Meng Qun

The following censorship instructions, issued to the media by government authorities, have been leaked and distributed online. The name of the issuing body has been omitted to protect the source.

All websites take note and delete the unauthorized foreign media report “17 Months of Torment for Pu Zhiqiang’s Wife Meng Qun.” (October 8, 2015) [Chinese]

A profile of Meng Qun, wife of detained and indicted rights lawyer Pu Zhiqiang, was published to the website of the Hong Kong-based journal Asia Weekly (亞洲週刊) last week. CDT has translated the online version of the profile in full.

真Since directives are sometimes communicated orally to journalists and editors, who then leak them online, the wording published here may not be exact. The date given may indicate when the directive was leaked, rather than when it was issued. CDT does its utmost to verify dates and wording, but also takes precautions to protect the source.
