China sentences activist to 10 years in prison

Chinese authorities sentenced a democracy activist to 10 years in prison for subversion, a relative said Thursday, the third dissident found guilty of similar charges in less than a month, CNN said. A court in Wuhan sentenced Li Tie, 52, for “subversion of state power,” according to a relative who did not want to be named for fear of punishment. Li was arrested in 2010 for pro-de­mo­cracy articles that prosecutors said criticized the government, and tried in April last year, the Hong Kong-based Chinese Human Rights Defenders group said in a statement.
