希尼爾翻譯公司（www.eacrwc.tw）2016年1月23日了解到：A Swedish human rights
activist arrested in China has admitted to crimes on state television,
the second Swedish national to feature in a TV confession in recent
days, as authorities increasingly turn to such broadcasts in their
crackdown on dissent.
Peter Jesper Dahlin, who was initially reported detained last
week, had “sponsored activities jeopardising China’s national security”,
state news agency Xinhua reported late on Tuesday.

Dietmar Schweisgut, EU ambassador to China, told a press conference on
Wednesday. “We do hope [the detentions] are not a ‘new normal’ but we do
see an extremely worrying trend, he added, calling for “full

Televised confessions by those accused of politically sensitive
crimes have become common in China, even as criminal complaints and
judicial proceedings are largely kept secret. Mr Dahlin and other

“Certain people that we supported at one time or another have

broadcast on Tuesday. “And we know that in some cases ... they have been
very serious crimes. And we are also aware that this also means that we

The arrest is the latest in Chinese authorities’ campaign against
lawyers and rights activists. Last July dozens of lawyers were rounded
up in a nationwide sweep. In December Pu Zhiqiang, one of China’s most
famous rights lawyers, was given a suspended prison sentence for
inciting ethnic hatred and disrupting public order.
Mr Dahlin also said in his confession that an activist his
organisation had trained had “illegally brought the son of lawyer Wang
Yu across an international border”.
Xinhua said Mr Dahlin had “hired and trained others, who were
called ‘lawyers’ and petitioners, to gather, distort, exaggerate and
even fabricate negative information about China”, and compiled it into a
human rights report. The Chinese Urgent Action Working Group had
received “unregulated huge sums of money” from seven unnamed foreign
non-governmental organisations, the agency said.

CCTV quoted Mr Dahlin as saying that information gathered from
the internet for the organisation’s human rights report “doesn’t
represent the true and comprehensive situation” and that he had not
personally witnessed the cases described — although Mr Dahlin was not
shown making that statement.
