China fails on human rights plan: HRW

The group said China deserves praise for openly publishing human rights plan.

Beijing: A human rights group says the continued use of torture, illegal detention, censorship and other offenses mean China has failed to deliver on its first human rights action plan.
The New York-based Human Rights Watch said after evaluating China`s official two-year plan that ended last month that China deserves praise for openly publishing a human rights plan but said its many failures left it "largely a series of unfulfilled promises”.
China`s human rights were fully in the spotlight last year when imprisoned author and critic Liu Xiaobo was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Liu`s wife, Liu Xia, has been under house arrest and out of contact since shortly after the award was announced in October.
