China journalist faces charges for corruption report – Chris Buckley

From Reuters (link)

Chinese journalist had told his wife he knew how to handle the risks of his job, but that was before he was arrested after reporting claims of corruption, joining the country’s list of detained reporters.

Yang was arrested in January after five months’ hiding from police, charged with extortion after reporting claims of dishonest state property sales in his home county in southern China’s Hunan province, his wife Gong Jie told Reuters.

But Yang, his family and other reporters insisted he was innocent and said officials persecuted him for exposing their misdeeds.
