Where is Gao Zhisheng again? He has gone missing since Sunday
We are dismayed to find that rights lawyer and political dissident Gao Zhisheng has been out of contact with his wife in the last few days after he voiced support for a fellow activist who was sentenced to prison last week.
Gao's wife Geng He, who lives in the United States, said yesterday that her daily contact with her husband was abruptly cut off on Sunday, and when she called his number there was a message saying the number no longer existed.
On Saturday Gao had praised Yang Maodong in an online article.
And now with Gao being incommunicado, there are fears he is being punished for speaking out again.
This is not the first time this has happened, though it is troubling each time he is punished.
