Leading China Rights Activist To Stand Trial Next Week: Lawyer

From AFP:

Chinese dissident Hu Jia will stand trial next week for subversion, his lawyers said Friday, in a case that is being seen as a litmus test for China’s vow to improve human rights ahead of the Olympics.

Hu is facing charges of “incitement to subvert state power” and will be tried on Tuesday morning at the Beijing No 1 Intermediate People’s Court, Li Jingsong told AFP.

The Beijing intermediate court handed over the formal indictment and other case documents to Hu’s lawyers this week, he said.

An official at the court who picked up the phone on Friday said she had no information on the case, and asked to call back in the afternoon.
