China sends campaigner Liu Feiyue who ran human rights website to prison for five years.

A Chinese court on Tuesday sentenced the founder of a website that reported on human rights abuses to five years in jail for “inciting subversion” of state power, a verdict criticised by a campaign group as part of an effort to shut down grass-roots political activism.

Liu Feiyue, the founder of Msguancha.com, a news portal that covers government corruption, police abuses and human rights issues, was arrested in 2016 and charged with “inciting subversion of state power”.

The Intermediate People’s Court in Suizhou city, central Hubei province, sentenced Liu to five years in prison and seized more than one million yuan (US$148,326) of his personal assets, the court’s website said.
