Are arrest warrants either posted in a public place or otherwise available to members of the public? 5. Would someone who was the subject of an arrest warrant and who was detained for periods of 15 days (1997) and a month (2005) be given, or otherwise be able to obtain, both their arrest warrant and release papers? 6. Is it true that the Chinese authorities only consider those who have been imprisoned for more than a year, or those who have committed serious criminal offences, as persons who have committed a criminal offence? 7.
