Chinese rights lawyer returns home after 2-year sentence

The wife of a prominent Chinese human rights lawyer who recently completed a two-year prison sentence on national security charges says that he has returned to his parents’ home in central China.

Jin Bianling wrote on Twitter over the weekend that she video-chatted with her husband, Jiang Tianyong, who was released from jail last Thursday.

She says that Jiang was permitted to go to his parents’ residence in Henan province two days after he was initially released and escorted elsewhere by police.

Jin wrote on Twitter from Los Angeles, where she and their daughter live, that while Jiang is out of jail, he says that he is “still not free.” Jiang defended politically sensitive individuals like the blind legal activist Chen Guangcheng and followers of the outlawed Falun Gong spiritual group.
