China Dissident Held ‘For Criticising Quake response’

From Guardian:

Chinese police have detained a political dissident because of remarks he made about the government’s handling of the Sichuan earthquake, according to his family and supporters.

Guo Quan, the founder of the China Democracy party, was seized outside his home by seven or eight police officers four days ago. They searched his house and confiscated his computer.

“They waited outside and caught him as he was taking our child to school,” said his wife Li Jing.
