Detention of Dr Yang Jun

  • Statement

Today marks two year since Australian citizen, Dr Yang Jun, faced a closed trial in Beijing.

Dr Yang is still awaiting a verdict and the Australian Government remains deeply concerned about delays in his case.

Today, our thoughts are with Dr Yang and his family.

Australia has consistently called for basic standards of justice, procedural fairness and humane treatment for Dr Yang, in accordance with international norms and China’s legal obligations.

We will continue to advocate for Dr Yang’s interests and wellbeing, and provide consular support to Dr Yang and his family.
