China Suspends Two Human Rights Attys For Life

China suspended Human Rights Attorneys Liu Wei and Tang Jitian,
for their representation of religious and political dissidents.

Tang Jitian said Chinese authorities "...have completely gone against the principles of the law and out of their need to take revenge against the profession, they have decided to punish us this way."

The lawyers say that they will appeal and use all legal means to expose the authorities illegal actions.
