Washington DC (USA) – The US has condemned China for wrongfully sentencing of independent journalist and women’s rights activist Huang Xueqin (Sophia Huang), as well as labour rights activist Wang Jianbing. The US has also called for immediate release of these two activists. China’s Government sentenced Huang to five years of imprisonment and Wang to three years and six months of imprisonment.

US State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said Zhuqin and Jianbing should be released immediately as they were unfairly detained. China is constantly trying to intimidate and silence citizens in this way.
