更新: 2019-05-09 (17:30 GMT+1) 继英国通讯管理局Ofcom收到英国公民韩飞龙联合保护卫士提交的投诉,并决定启动对中国国家电视台CGTN的调查后,隔日再启动对该电视台第二项调查,涉及播出被监禁瑞典书商桂敏海的两次强迫电视认罪视频,投诉亦由桂敏海之女安吉拉与保护卫士联合提交。 自2018年播出桂敏海的最后一次电视认罪后,中国仍在继续摘取并在国内外播出类似电视“认罪”。桂敏海最后一次认罪视频也在CGTN法语频道播出,此后被在电视上认罪游行的人士包括二位加拿大人,一位中国记者(连同他的家人),一位维族诗人,甚至还有一位仍处于失联的中国高院法官,这些人的电视认罪均在未被法庭定罪前,甚至未被逮捕前。虽然自2016年高峰期后,电视认罪的使用已经放缓,但仍然是中国当局持续使用的工具。

CCTV13 today (2019-02-22) aired the 50th known Forced TV Confessions since Xi Jinping came to power. CCTV13's news program Focus On (共同关注) aired a confession in their evening news broadcast featuring Wang Linqing (王林清), a judge on China's Supreme Court that went missing on January 3, 2019, and possibly placed into Liuzhi under China's new National Supervision Commission.

On February 28, 2019, a complaint will be filed by Safeguard Defenders to the UK’s TV regulator Ofcom, concerning systematic violations of the UK’s rule concerning due impartiality and due accuracy in TV broadcasts (standards section five), calling on Ofcom to investigate the broadcast of known and provable lies and intentional distortions in newscasts. The full complaint uses eight different broadcasts by CCTV/CGTN to show the systematic nature of these violations.

This brief paper looks into how critics are effectively disappeared after arrest, while awaiting trial, by police’s use of false names for those placed into pre-trial detention, done by police sometimes with, sometimes without, the detention centers’ knowledge.
