Amnesty International has compiled records of 33 prisoners of conscience currently detained for Internet offences. This document includes ten appeal cases for 16 prisoners who are either political activists or Falun Gong practitioners, and two people who have died in custody as a result of torture. Most have been sentenced under the Criminal Law for sharing, spreading or downloading information considered by the Chinese authorities as harmful or "subversive". Sentences range from 2 - 12 years.
