Reuters: China Jails Reporter for Leaking ‘State Secrets’


A court in south China jailed a Chinese journalist for 10 years on Saturday for illegally providing state secrets to overseas organizations, the state-run Xinhua news agency said.

The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists said in February that China had the most journalists in prison, 42, of any country for the sixth year in a row.

Prosecutors in Hunan province told the Intermediate People’s Court that , 37, a former news editor for the Contemporary Business News in provincial capital Changsha, e-mailed notes he took at an April 2004 internal newspaper meeting to an unnamed overseas publication, Xinhua said without naming the publication.
