Activist and writer Guo Feixiong (郭飞雄) was released from prison on Tuesday, September 13, 2011, following the completion of a five-year sentence for “illegal business activity.” Prior to his imprisonment, Guo had also worked as a legal advisor at the Beijing-based Shengzhi Law Office and provided legal assistance on several controversial cases. Amongst these included helping the villagers of Taishi, Guangdong, to remove a corrupt village chief in 2005. The charge of “illegal business activity” was connected with the 2001 publication of a book that Guo had edited on a political scandal in Liaoning.
