Chinese Activists To Face Jail Term

share on:

The three Chinese anti-corruption activists who were called out earlier have been sentenced to up to six-and-a-half years in prison on Thursday, a lawyer said, the latest in their grass-roots movement to be jailed despite an official drive against graft.

Last year the trio had taken photos of themselves protesting with banners in a bid to persuade the government officials to disclose their assets as a curb against corruption.

Liu and Wei whose sentences are the longest handed down so far to member of their New Citizen Movement, were found guilty of disrupting public order, “using evil religion to sabotage law enforcement” and “picking fights and provoking trouble”, while Li was convicted only of the final charge.

  1. With the latest study from PEW Research stating that 95% of teens have access to the Internet, 80% of kids have
    cell phones and 48% have data plans, providing a safe cyber-space should be a priority for all
    parents. Then consider yourself one of the few, true internet marketers.
    A internet marketing business, in a nutshell, a business that’s designed to run on the internet
    via a website.
