China Releases Last Tiananmen ‘Hooligan’

From AFP:

The last known prisoner incarcerated for “hooliganism” during China’s 1989 Tiananmen democracy movement has been released after nearly 20 years in jail, a US-based rights group said.

But up to 30 people imprisoned as a result of the protests and the subsequent bloody crackdown remain in jail on other charges, including counter-revolutionary crimes, the Dui Hua foundation said.

“Liu Zhihua was the last leader of an autonomous workers’ federation — independent labor unions set up during the spring — serving a prison sentence,” Dui Hua director John Kamm said.
