【香港】寫信呼籲香港釋放佔中四子!

ASA 17/0257/2019

 

2014年香港民主雨傘運動佔中9子其中的4名領袖,4月以「公眾妨擾」罪名遭判刑8至16個月,相關指控包含在抗議期間「阻礙公共場所與道路」。

 

他們僅因和平倡議香港民主,就成為遭監禁的良心犯;此判決開了危險先例,未來可能造成政府以模糊的罪名全面起訴及監禁和平示威者,造成對香港言論與和平集會自由的寒蟬效應。

致行政長官:
 
 
在2019年4月24日,2014年香港支持民主的雨傘運動中4名領袖:法律學者戴耀廷、社會學教授陳建民、政治領袖黃浩銘與立法會議員邵家臻「公眾妨擾」罪名成立,遭判刑入獄8至16個月,相關指控包含在抗議期間「阻礙公共場所與道路」。
 
9名領袖(佔中9子)僅因其行使和平示威、表達言論自由的權利,即遭模糊的罪名定罪,其中包括「串謀犯公眾妨擾罪」、「煽惑他人犯公眾妨擾罪」以及「煽惑他人煽惑公眾妨擾罪」。這是香港政府首次引用這些罪名來起訴和平示威者。檢察官決定以普通法的「公眾妨擾」罪名控告9人,刑罰比成文法中類似的指控更重。以「煽惑」及「煽惑他人煽惑」的罪名將人們定罪及判刑,對香港的言論與和平集會自由造成長遠的負面影響。報刊文章、示威活動幾個月前的記者會聲明、媒體訪問,以及警方拍攝示威領導者透過喇叭督促參加者邀請其他人加入示威活動的片段,在案中都屬「煽惑」的證據。
 
4位領袖的判決與入獄開了先例,未來可能造成政府以模糊的罪名全面起訴及監禁和平示威者,造成對香港言論與和平集會自由的寒蟬效應。全部9名示威者表明會對定罪判決提出上訴。
 
我們呼籲行政長官您:確保這4名僅因和平倡議香港民主即遭判刑入獄的良心犯立即無條件釋放,且該判決應即刻被推翻,不得延遲。
 
 此致 行政長官
Dear Chief Executive:
 
On 24 April 2019, four leaders of the 2014 pro-democracy Umbrella Movement protests, Professor Benny Tai Yiu-ting, Professor Chan Kin-man, Raphael Wong Ho-ming and Shiu Ka-chun, were sentenced to eight to 16 months’ imprisonment, on conviction of “public nuisance” related charges for “obstructing public places and roads” during the protests.
 
The nine were convicted of vague and ambiguous charges, including “conspiracy to commit public nuisance”, “incitement to commit public nuisance” and “incitement to incite public nuisance”, solely for their peaceful exercise of the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. It is the first time the government used these charges against peaceful protestors. Prosecutors based the charges on common-law offences, which allows for harsher sentences compared to similar charges under statutory law. The conviction and sentencing for “incitement” and “incitement to incite public nuisance” have long-term negative impacts on the enjoyment of the human rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly in Hong Kong. In this case, evidence of “incitement” included newspaper articles directed to the public at large; press conference statements and media interviews that happened months before the protests; and videos taken by the police of protest leaders using loudspeakers to urge participants to invite others to join the protests.
 
The conviction and the imprisonment of the four sets a worrying precedent that these vague and ambiguous charges could be used for blanket prosecution and imprisonment of peaceful protesters, exacerbating the chilling effect on freedom of peaceful assembly and expression in Hong Kong. The nine indicated that they will appeal against the conviction.
 
We call on you Chief Executive to ensure the immediate and unconditional release of the four prisoners of conscience, imprisoned solely for peacefully advocating for democracy in Hong Kong, and that their convictions are overturned without delay.
 
Yours sincerely,
