No verdict in Zhao Yan trial

Posted by Author on July 28, 2006

(RSF/IFEX) – Reporters Without Borders has expressed concern at the “completely illegal” handling by the authorities of the case of “New York Times” employee Zhao Yan, who faces the death penalty for “fraud” and “revealing state secrets.” The organisation calls for the immediate release of the laureate of the 2005 Reporters Without Borders press freedom prize.

No verdict has been announced within the official six-week time limit (which expired on 25 July 2006) after his behind closed doors trial on 16 June by the Beijing no. 2 intermediate court.

“The New York Times” has applied for his release and his lawyer, Guan Anping, said it was hoped the authorities would “recognise the irregularities in the case and take a just decision.”
