China's

Over the past 2 weeks, more than 230 human rights lawyers, employees and activists have been arrested, detained or have disappeared following Beijing’s crackdown on individuals deemed threats to ‘national security’.

Why are these individuals being targeted when Beijing’s leaders claim to want to make the judicial system more responsive to ordinary citizens? We explore.

This is a report by Wong Yu Han.
