China lacks the rule of law: Chen
New York: Blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng, who was at the centre of an extraordinary diplomatic crisis between China and US for nearly a month, hopes Beijing will conduct a thorough probe into his illegal punishment for the past seven years.
In an op-ed piece published on The New York Times website on Tuesday night, Chen Guangcheng wrote that the fundamental question the Chinese government must face is lawlessness.
He writes that "China does not lack laws, but the rule of law."
Chen escaped house arrest in China and was given sanctuary inside the US embassy, setting off a diplomatic skirmish that ended with his leaving China.
Chen, who is now a fellow at New York University`s law school, plans to speak on Thursday at the Council on Foreign Relations in Manhattan.
