CHINA - CYBER-DISSIDENT WHO HAS BEEN TORTURED REFUSES TO ANSWER PROSECUTOR IN COURT - 10.07.2007

The trial of cyber-dissident Guo Feixiong was adjourned after three hours yesterday morning because of his "unruly" behaviour in court. "It is clear that this is a case of political persecution, I doubt the fairness of this trial because of the presence in the courtroom of two prosecutors against whom I brought complaints", he told the court.

More from the article:

"Judging by the fact that 90 per cent of the 175 interrogations to which I have been subjected during my 10 months in detention were about human rights issues, it is clear that this is a case of political persecution," he told the court.
