Freedom House today renewed its deep concern about the fairness and impartiality of the pending court decision in the case of former Yukos head, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, in light of comments made by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin during a call-in session with the Russian public.

The Chinese Communist Party's decision to arrest prominent attorney Xu Zhiyong represents the latest stage in its campaign to counter efforts by Chinese lawyers to build the rule of law and hold the government to account.

Freedom House calls on the Chinese government to reverse its recent campaign against human rights lawyers and allow them to carry out their work without intimidation or interference.
