A Chinese journalist in jail – NYT

From a New York Times editorial (link):

Among other things, China must have a free press and a judicial system based on the rather than political power. One highly public test of both will be whether the Chinese authorities release , who has been in jail for nearly 18 months on specious charges that he revealed state secrets to The New York Times.
