China Releases Kin of Tiananmen Victims


Tiananmen Square MassacreChina said Friday it has released a woman who lost her husband and two who lost their sons in the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests after detaining them over 'illegal activities sponsored by overseas forces.'
Retired professor Ding Zilin, a leading spokeswoman for the Tiananmen Mothers group, Zhang Xianling and Huang Jinping were 'released by police after being admonished and showing repentance,' according to the official Xinhua News

In another report in the People's Daily Ding supposedly "confessed that she and he co-detained "conspired "with overseas forces to evade Chinese Customs and import illegal goods to China with fabricated labels and documents, and engaged in other activities in violation of China's Customs Law, the State Security Law and detailed rules on the implementation of the State Security Law".

The flowery and obviously trumped up accusations can not hide what this really was: an attempt to intimidate Ding and her Tiananmen Mothers group ahead of the 15th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre
