Chinese journalist now free

Chinese journalist Shi Tao is finally free for being jailed for eight years after he revealed the government’s restriction of the 15th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre.

It was known that Shi’s release was early as expected because he was sentenced for 10 years.

Shi was a member of the independent Chinese Pen Center that aims to promote freedom of speech in China. (Luisito Antonio Santos)
