During New York Visit, Chinese Forced Labour Camp Director Sued by Local Refugees for Torture

The man in charge of forced labor camps in China’s Guangdong province was served yesterday with a lawsuit while visiting Manhattan. The complaint, filed on behalf of two female refugees now residing in Queens and other victims still in China, urges that the camp system superintendent be held liable for torture, illegal deprivation of liberty, and other severe human rights violations carried out in Guangdong labor camps that he has overseen since 2000.
