Wife of Jailed Chinese Rights Lawyer Takes Protest to Supreme Court

The wife of a jailed human rights lawyer has staged a vocal protest outside China's highest court during the Lunar New Year holiday, calling for redress for his incommunicado detention since July 2015. As the rest of China celebrated the Year of the Pig with their families, Li Wenzu, wife of rights attorney Wang Quanzhang, shouted slogans outside the Supreme People's Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorate, the highest state prosecuting body, in Beijing. "Acquit and release Wang Quanzhang!" Li shouted, with family members of fellow activists and lawyers at her side.
