Chinese Journalist Working For US-based News Website Arrested

Posted by Author on June 5, 2007

Reporters Without Borders, 31 May 2007, updated on June 5, 2007-

Reporters Without Borders called for the release of Sun Lin (better known as Jie Mu), a correspondent for the (US-based) news website Boxun http://news.boxun.com, who was arrested on 30 May by plainclothes police in the eastern city of Nanjing.

His wife, He Fang, was arrested at the same time but freed four hours later.

They also searched the journalist’s apartment.

On 29 May, police detained for several hours a score of people at a cafeteria run by He Fang.

Jie Mu sent film to the US-based Chinese-language Boxun describing their detention. He also recently interviewed victims of official abuses in several parts of China.

A foreign ministry official in Nanjing went to his home in March and told him to stop working as a journalist and seized his press card.

Jie Mu, who founded the now-banned newspaper Da Du Shi, told Reporters Without Borders he had printed stories about abuses of power but had never done anything illegal.
