Today marks four years since Dr Yang Hengjun (Dr Yang Jun) was detained in China.

While reports have noted that Dr Yang was allowed a consular visit, the Opposition remains deeply concerned for Dr Yang’s welfare as well as his limitations on access to legal representation.

The uncertainty and continual delays to Dr Yang’s case are unacceptable and unjust.

We urge the Albanese Government to use all available diplomatic means to secure the release of Dr Yang as well as Ms Cheng Lei who was detained August 2020.

During this difficult time our thoughts remain with Dr Yang and his family.
