A Chinese lawyer who refused to hand over his mobile phone has been assaulted and left naked by the Qingxui district police in China upon request.   

Wu Liangshu stood in front of the district court half naked with leftovers of his gown showing his bare legs and under pants.

A number of Chinese lawyers have already gone through similar ordeals with some even kept in police custody.

Speaking to BBC, Mr. Liangshu Wu said “I wasn’t shocked. I have heard plenty of weird and violent stories of things happening to lawyers in China but I didn’t expect it to happen to me”. The officers, on the other hand, say that he refused to hand over his mobile phone when they asked for it.

Mr. Wu’s aim was to draw public attention as to what lawyers in China face every day so when he was offered replacement of the torn clothes he refused and said “no thanks

The lawyer was bold enough to come out from the court compound carrying his court materials, with a pen still stuck in the top pocket of his ripped shirt.

He was accused of making illegal recordings of court officials.

According to the first official investigation, the court police did not “beat” the lawyer but were found to have adopted “abusive coercive means” when forcing him to hand over his phone.

Over thousand Chinese lawyers have reportedly signed a statement criticizing the attack and calling for the CCTV footage from inside the court to be released to actually tell what happened.

Subsequently, the Chinese Lawyers’ Association has described Wu Liangshu’s incident as “really distressing”.

Meanwhile this incident has sparked controversies on social media with only negative comments against Mr Wu. “In China, lawyers can’t even defend their own rights, how can they defend their clients” and “you can tell just how Chinese human rights are from this picture”, according to the BBC.
