Gao Zhisheng is going to finish serving his 8-year sentence, including three years in prison and five years’ probation. His family asked to pick him up from prison, but was told that the prison would need to communicate with Beijing first.
In 2006, Chinese rights defense lawyer Gao Zhisheng was convicted of “inciting subversion of state power” and sentenced to three years in prison with five years’ probation. Now his 8-year sentence is winding up.
