SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – The Bay Area woman, whose dissident husband was released from a Chinese prison on Thursday, is now calling for his return to the United States.
Gao Zhisheng is one of China’s best-known human rights lawyer and also a government critic. He was released from Shaya prison in China on Thursday, after being convicted in 2006 of subversion. He was sentenced to three years before being released on probation, but was taken away by security agents again in 2009. In 2011, he was sent back to prison because according to state media, he violated the terms of his probation.
