UPDATE: Dissident & Christian Zhu Yufu’s Subversion Trial Scheduled for Tuesday Jan. 31

Monday, January 30, 2012

China Aid Association

(Hangzhou, Zhejiang—Jan. 29, 2012) A longtime political dissident and baptized Christian, Zhu Yufu, is scheduled to go on trial on Tuesday for allegedly “inciting subversion of state power,” ChinaAid has learned.

Zhu was formally charged earlier this month after having been held in detention for 10 months in Hangzhou, coastal Zhejiang province. He will be defended by at the trial before the Hangzhou Intermediate People’s Court by the well-known Christian human rights lawyers Li Baiguang and Li Duiyong of the Beijing Gongxin Law Firm.

Zhu’s political activism dates back to the 1979 Democracy Wall movement, and he had previously been imprisoned twice for a total of nine years.

This time, he was summoned by police from the Wangjiang police station in the Shangcheng Sub-division on March 5, 2011 and taken into custody for a poem Zhu wrote and posted online around the time of the Arab “Jasmine Revolution” calling on people to take to the streets.
