Mr. Liu, now 48, was released and returned to his home in Beijing on Febuary 5, 2007.

The suffering my wife and son had to endure is nothing compared to the martyred brothers and sisters in China. I will contniue to stand up for this just cause for which I am called (to seak up for the persecuted).”
