[JURIST] Chinese activist Peng Ming has been sentenced to life imprisonment for terrorist activities [Xinhua report] by Wuhan's Intermediate People's Court. The court found that Peng tried to overthrow the Communist Party by operating a terrorist training base in Myanmar, orchestrating kidnappings and murder, and publishing numerous books and articles encouraging terrorism and violence. A former Communist Party member, Peng fled China after spending 18 months in a Chinese labor camp and founded the little-known China Federation Party. Peng has been shunned by China's exiled pro-democracy movement [Wikipedia profile], which advocates peaceful means of bringing about change. Reuters has more.
