Cyber dissident Wang Xiaoning freed but many Chinese netizens still in prison

Reporters Without Borders acknowledges the release today of the cyber dissident Wang Xiaoning.”We are relieved to know that Wang Xiaoning is finally free and we share the joy of his family and friends,” the press freedom organization said. “However, we note that he served his sentence in its entirety and there has been no question of leniency on the part of the Chinese authorities. We urge the latter to allow Wang Xiaoning to lead a normal life and spare him the surveillance and intimidation to which many dissidents are subjected after they leave prison.
