Honours for China’s Sars whistle blower

This news is on today’s Straits Times. “The military doctor who blew the whistle on the Chinese government’s cover-up of Sars last year is among this year’s winners of the Ramon Magsaysay Awards, Asia’s equivalent of the Nobel Prize.

Dr , who had called for a political reassessment of the 1989 Tiananmen Square incident, was recently released after being held for seven weeks by Beijing.

Dr Jiang, who was given the award for public service, was honoured for his ‘brave stand for truth in China, spurring life-saving measures to confront and contain the deadly threat of Sars’. ”
