Famous Chinese Artist Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison For His Speech

Posted by Author on April 18, 2007

On April 13, the Famous Chinese painter Yan Zhengxue was sentenced to three years in prison for “inciting subversion of state power.” Said by NTDTV, the global Chinese language TV network. Here’s it’s video report:

Mr. Yan’s defense attorney Li Jianqiang told The Epoch Times that initially Yan had been accused by the court of “subverting state power,” but this charge had been reduced to “inciting subversion of state power.” The court had removed charges of him participating in safeguarding land rights of Zhejiang Province and organizing the farmer’s union, collecting donations for Chinese exile writer Liu Binyan, and his secret membership in China’s Democratic Party.

Yan’s conviction was focused on the charges that he had published articles on overseas websites.

Mr. Yan Zhengxue was born in 1944 in Zhejiang Province, China. In 1962, he was admitted to the middle school affiliated with the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts.

In 1990, he was elected mayor of Yuanmingyuan artist village which is known as China’s “SOHO.” Many of his artistic works have been displayed in China and internationally, especially those paintings which were created during the time when he was in jail.

On October 18, 2006, Yan’s home was ransacked and he was abducted by the Zhejiang Taizhou State Security Bureau. He was charged on October 25 with the crime of “subversion of state power.”

On the afternoon of April 5, 2007, Taizhou Intermediate People’s Court held a hearing on this case. – According to The Epoch Times’ report.
