Synopsis >

A Chinese court has jailed the brother-in-law of one of China's leading dissidents. The verdict, handed down here on Sunday, sparked outrage among rights activists. They say the case was trumped up and is part of official retribution on the Liu family. Liu Hui was sentenced to 11 years in jail on charges of fraud. He is the brother-in-law of Liu Xiaobo, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and critic of China's one-party rule. In a rare interview, Liu Xiaobo's wife condemned the verdict.
