+OverSword Posted August 4, 2021 #1 Share Posted August 4, 2021 Quote Sun Dawu runs one of the country's largest private agricultural businesses in the northern province of Hebei. Sun, 67, has in the past spoken out about human rights and politically sensitive topics. He was found guilty of "picking quarrels and provoking trouble" - a charge often used against activists. Other charges against him include illegally occupying farmland, assembling a crowd to attack state agencies and obstructing government workers from performing their duties. He was also fined 3.11 million yuan ($478,697; £343,227). Sun's company is among China's biggest, with businesses ranging from meat processing and pet food to schools and hospitals.

I wish to take the charges upon myself, even if they're severe, in exchange for the release of others. We are people who have made contributions to society," he said. 3 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
