【China】The Return of Li Mingzhe

Taiwanese human rights worker Lee Ming-che returned to Taiwan in May. He was indicted by the CCP for “subversion of state power” and detained for five years . Now he has finally returned to his hometown. During this period, his wife Li Jingyu firmly refused any quid pro quo. Instead, she went to the world and called for help in a high-profile manner, forcing the CCP to pay attention to Li Mingzhe’s treatment in prison. In the face of totalitarian oppression, the story of husband and wife’s complete mutual trust and protection of dignity is moving.
