Hu Jia sentenced to three and half years
Adjust font size:

Hu Jia was sentenced on Thursday by the Beijing First Intermediate People's Court to three and half years imprisonment, with one year deprivation of political rights, for subverting the state.

The verdict said Hu, aged 34, labeled the Chinese political and social system, and instigated subversion of the state, which is a crime under Chinese law.

Considering Hu's confession of crime and acceptance of punishment, the court decided the ruling with leniency and announced a less harsh prison sentence.
