Description of organisation:

China Human Rights Lawyers Concern Group (CHRLCG), a non-profit non-government organisation based in Hong Kong SAR, was established in 2007. It works for the betterment of the legal environment in China and advocates for the protection of the rights of human rights lawyers and legal rights defenders in the country.

It was established on 20 January 2007. Current board members included prominent human rights lawyer and former legislator Albert Ho Chun-yan (Chair), barrister Cheung Yiu-leung (Vice-chairperson), former legislator Emily Lau Wai-hing (Treasurer) , solicitors John Clancey, Chong Yiu-kwong and Vannie Lau, journalism professor To Yiu-ming (Secretary), Patrick Poon and Venus Cheng. The initial funding of this group valued at HK$1.2 million per year is generously provided by Sir Joseph Hotung. The group is expanding with some new funding sources.

We acknowledge that despite their endeavours to fight for the rights of the underprivileged within the legal framework, many lawyers and legal activists in China have been subject to tremendous political pressure and unfair treatment by the Chinese authorities. They and their families deserve more attention and support from Hong Kong society and the international community.
