Benjamin Kang Lim: China holds sociologist for leaking state secrets

From Reuters:

A sociologist at China’s top government think-tank and a colleague have been detained on suspicion of leaking state secrets, three independent sources said on Thursday amid a series of recent high-profile detentions.

Lu Jianhua, 45, a sociologist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), was taken into custody by agents of the state security apparatus in April, said the sources who asked not to be identified.

Chen Hui, assistant to the director of the CASS General Office who had access to classified documents, was detained around May, the sources said.
