China: Chen Crisis Momentarily Averted, Family, Supporters Remain In Danger

05/04/2012 China (ChinaAid) - Secretary Clinton announced today an agreement that allows Chen Guangcheng and his family to come to the U.S. Chen will reportedly accept a fellowship to New York University Law School. US officials stated they were working to expedite Chen's departure, probably in the next few days.


ChinaAid remains concerned about Chen's family members and the many rights defenders who remain in China. Chen's frail mother remains detained, his brother Chen Guangfu and nephew Chen Kegui will be sentenced, and the netizens who helped Chen escape, like He "Pearl" Pierong, still face charges. Also, famed human rights lawyer Jiang Tianyong was beaten on Friday morning for trying to visit Chen. He reportedly has lost hearing after the beating."

"The fight for freedom and rights continues," said Fu. "Beijing gives Chen freedom with one hand and beats rights defenders with the other. ChinaAid will remain vigilant."
