Bloomberg News: China Activist Chen Is Under U.S. Protection

April 28, 2012

Excerpted from Bloomberg News:

Chen was jailed for more than four years after helping villagers resist forced abortions, rights groups including the New York-based Human Rights in China say. After his release in September 2010, he and his wife were confined to their home in the village of Dongshigu. [...]

Human Rights in China, citing a “knowledgeable source” that it didn’t identify, said that Chen’s nephew, Chen Kegui, was taken from his home by more than 30 policemen yesterday. Chen Guangfu, Chen Guangcheng’s older brother, was taken away a day earlier, the group said in an e-mailed statement.
