Passed House amended (06/25/2003)

Condemns and deplores the incommunicado detention of Dr. Yang Jianli by the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the lack of due process afforded him.

Calls for his immediate and unconditional release.

Declares the sense of the House of Representatives that the United States should: (1) make the immediate release of Dr. Yang Jianli by the Government of the PRC a top concern of U.S. foreign policy; (2) continue to make every effort to assist Dr. Yang Jianli and his family while discussions of his release are ongoing; (3) make it clear to the Government of the PRC that the detention of U.S. citizens and permanent resident aliens and the infliction of human rights violations on these groups are not in the interests of the Government of the PRC; and (4) reiterate the deep U.S. concern regarding the continued imprisonment of Dr. Yang Jianli and other U.S. citizens and permanent resident aliens, and discuss their legal status and immediate humanitarian needs with the Government of the PRC.
