No visitors for Chinese activist in jail

2012-01-10 15:30
Beijing - The wife of an outspoken human rights lawyer jailed in China's remote Xinjiang region says her husband has been denied visitors.

Gao Zhisheng was jailed last month in Shaya county in the far western Xinjiang region. He's serving a three-year sentence for subversion that was ordered in 2006 but initially suspended. He was returned to jail in December for allegedly violating the terms of his parole.

Gao's wife, Geng He, says authorities in Shaya told relatives trying to see Gao on Tuesday that he is undergoing a three-month "education period" and is not allowed visitors.
