and cyber-dissident Lu Gengsong has been jailed for four years for "inciting subversion of state power," his lawyer said.

Lu blogged lots of stories about corruption and was unpopular with the officials he exposed. He is also known for disclosing a large number of illegal eviction cases. His lawyer Mo Shaoping said that he had decided beforehand that if he was sentenced we would appeal, so that's definitely what we'll do.

Police barred other supporters and friends from attending the verdict by either putting them under house arrest or preventing them from entering the courtroom.
