Chinese Journalist Sentenced To 3 Years

From AP:

A Chinese writer and journalist who was arrested after protesting against a power plant in southwest China was sentenced Friday to three years in prison on charges of subverting state power, his lawyer said.

Chen Daojun was sentenced in Chengdu, the capital of province, in a trial lasting a little more than 30 minutes, said Beijing-based lawyer Zhu Jiufu.

Three of Chen’s articles were presented in court as evidence that he attacked the Communist Party, Zhu said.

“In my opinion, he was only criticizing the party, and never said he would subvert it,” Zhu said.
