Short Summary
According to CHRD (10 February 12, 12 April 11, 16 May 12, 5 September 14), AP, via Star Tribune (10 February 12), RFA (17 January 12, 12 March 13), and CAA 14 February 12 and 8 April 13), PSB officials in Hangzhou city, Zhejiang province, detained democracy activist Zhu Yufu on March 5, 2011, and arrested him on April 11 on suspicion of "inciting subversion of state power." The Hangzhou Intermediate People's Court sentenced him to 7 years in prison on February 10, 2012. Zhu's verdict cited as evidence his activities in the name of the China Democracy Party; his assistance to democracy advocates; articles he wrote posted overseas that "slandered our country's" state power; and three Internet postings. Zhu lost his appeal in May 2012 and was placed in Zhejiang Provincial No. 4 Prison. His health condition reportedly had deteriorated, but officials denied him high blood pressure medication and his multiple medical parole requests. On March 4, 2018, authorities released Zhu on completion of his sentence but reportedly forcibly "travelled" him due to "stability maintenance" during the March 2018 meetings of the NPC and CPPCC in Beijing municipality (RDN, 4 March 18; RFA, 5 March 18). Authorities sentenced him to 7 years' imprisonment in 1999 and to 2 years in 2007 for his activism.
