An anonymous reader wrote in to tell us about Lin Hai, who ischarged with ' internet subversion' in the PRC. His crime is apparently to pass a list of 30,000 chineese EMail address to an on-line magazine run by Chineese dissedents abroad. He faces life imprisonment if found guilty. Here is the original story. These reports will not be seen in the PRC as the BBC's Mandarin Service is blocked by the 'Great Firewall of China'. I bet Slashdot is too.
