Gao’s extremely moving account of being brutally tortured by the police

WSJ: The whereabouts of Gao Zhisheng, who had carved out an international reputation for taking on controversial legal cases, such as government land seizures, has been the subject of intense speculation since he disappeared last year. Previously, a foreign ministry official had said Mr. Gao is “where he should be,” later amending his statement to say he didn’t know where Mr. Gao was.

At a news conference Tuesday with British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said in response to a reporter’s question: “Gao Zhisheng has been sentenced for committing the crime of subverting state power,” according to the Associated Press.

Referring to allegations Mr. Gao had been tortured, he added, “His relevant rights based on this law have been protected, so the question of torture does not exist.”

Anyone who follows China apart from propaganda knows that the chances that Gao is not being tortured are extremely slim.
