Chinese rights lawyer in remote jail denied visits
Beijing: The wife of an outspoken human rights lawyer jailed in China`s remote Xinjiang region says her husband has been denied visitors.
Gao Zhisheng was jailed last month in Shaya county in the far western Xinjiang region. He`s serving a three-year sentence for subversion that was ordered in 2006 but initially suspended. He was returned to jail in December for allegedly violating the terms of his parole.
Gao`s wife, Geng He, says authorities in Shaya told relatives trying to see Gao on Tuesday that he is undergoing a three-month "education period" and is not allowed visitors.
She says Gao`s family was told that if he behaves well, he can see his family after three months, but that he will be denied visitors if he behaves badly.
