Chinese lawyer Jiang Tianyong scans the half-empty office of the Gongmeng rights group's legal research center after it was closed in July 2009 by Chinese authorities. The last time he was seen, police were throwing him into a van in February while visiting his brother's house near Beijing. "None of them will tell me anything about why he was taken away or where he has been taken to," his wife, Jin Bianling, said. "I worry about him all the time. What if the police are torturing him?"
