China accuses journalist of spying – Jane Macartney

Chengxiang From The Times Online:

China yesterday charged a journalist for a Singapore newspaper with spying for Taiwan, alleging that had accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars to carry out espionage.

The arrest of the veteran journalist, who has reported on China for more than 20 years and is familiar with numerous government officials and prominent academics, may be intended to send a message to the media about the limits placed on press freedom by the Communist leadership.
