It's merely the common situation of the CCP's rule in China. This is the "law" which Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Cisco, Nortel etc. claimed that they should respect and obey.

Lihlii,
You are wrong that such things are happening in China because of CCP. I can quote examples from US history that shows similar behavior - arrest without charges, no consultation with lawyers etc. etc. In fact even more evil than what CCP is doing. It happened in the 1920s during the Red Scare. Many many thousands were arrested this way in the US at that time. Contrast to CPC which is only arresting a handful. And US at that time was a democracy so we cannot blame CCP for this, although in my book, China is a democracy as well.

see: http://us.history.wisc.edu/hist102/lectures/lecture16.html

"On January 2, 1920, the Red Scare reached its climax in the United States. On this day, simultaneously in thirty three American cities, Justice Department agents arrested 3,000 "communists, anarchists, and aliens." In actuality, most of these persons had broken no law and were, in fact, American citizens. The government violated their constitutional rights by detaining them without bail and by preventing their contact with lawyers or family members. Government agents also apprehended other Americans for "guilt by association." This series of arrests brought the total number to around 7,000. Of these 7,000, the government deported or imprisoned only 556. "

mahathir_fan: I'll have to notice you that due to ineffective network propaganda you did last month, you have to come back to our agency's headquarter located here in Bejing to get your paycheck.
