Interview: 'They Are Still Restricting My Freedom,' Says Lawyer Wang Quanzhang

Chinese rights lawyer Wang Quanzhang was released from Shandong's Linyi Prison at the end of a four-and-a-half year jail term handed down on Jan. 28, 2019 by the Tianjin No. 2 Intermediate People's Court, which found him guilty of "subversion of state power." The verdict and sentence followed repeated delays, resulting in Wang being held in pretrial detention for more than three years with no access to a lawyer or family visits. Since his release on April 5, Wang has been told not to go back to join his wife and son at the family's Beijing home. He spoke to RFA reporter Gao Feng about life on the outside.
