Human Rights in China (HRIC) has learned that Shandong-based dissident Li Jianping has been sentenced to two years in prison, more than half a year after he went to trial and more than 500 days after he was first detained. On October 25, the Zibo City Intermediate People’s Court found Li guilty of “incitement to subvert state power” on the basis of articles he wrote that were posted on overseas Web sites. Li reportedly plans to appeal the verdict.
