Global Voices co-founder Rebecca MacKinnon blogs about new information related to the case of 'net dissident Wang Xiaoning, shown above with his wife (who is suing Yahoo for helping China jail her husband):
More documents have surfaced showing that Yahoo! employees knew that they were handling political cases when they received information requests from Chinese authorities on at least two people now doing serious jailtime.More on the documents Link.
This is contrary to previous claims by Yahoo! that "we had no information about the nature of the investigation." Note that Yahoo! insists that it is wrong to say they were lying, in spite of that statement made to Congress last year which makes it seem like they were.
This week's documents, also courtesy of the DuiHua Foundation, contain new details from the case of Wang Xiaoning, also doing ten years, for "inciting subversion." The folks at Duihua have examined the new documents, judged them to be authentic, and uploaded the originals plus translations here.
