HRIC Posts Discussion of Wu's Case & Suffering


September 22, 2011, Human Rights in China (HRIC) started to pay closer attention to Wu's case and his recent suffering.


" After proposing, in 1998 and 1999, government reforms, including greater government transparency, establishing non-Party oversight bodies, and ending corruption, Wu Zeheng, a Guangdong-based Buddhist leader, was sentenced to 11 years in prison on the charges of "illegal business" and "issuing stock without authorization." Since his release in February 2010, he has been continually harassed, monitored, threatened and beaten."
