Philip P. Pan: China Discloses Prisoner Details

From the Washington Post:

The Chinese government has given U.S. officials a list of 51 political prisoners who have been granted sentence reductions or are being considered for early release, a gesture that comes as the Bush administration is weighing whether to sponsor a resolution criticizing China’s human rights record at a U.N. meeting next month.

The list was delivered last week to a State Department delegation visiting Beijing for discussions about resuming a formal U.S.-China dialogue on human rights, according to the Dui Hua Foundation, a human rights group in San Francisco that was also given a copy of the list by the Chinese.
