Radio Free Asia – On May 8, AIDS activist and human rights defender Hu Jia was transferred to Chaobai Prison in Tianjin to serve his sentence. His lawyer, Li Fangping, reports that he was only notified on May 14 that Hu had been transferred and did not know the reasoning behind it. A friend of Hu says that he is worried for Hu’s health, as he suffers from liver disease and may be required to work. Hu’s family, including his wife and daughter, are all in Beijing. On April 3, Hu was sentenced to three and a half years’ imprisonment and one year’s deprivation of his political rights. He stated in April that he would not challenge his verdict.
