Wang Juntao Links Hu Jia Case with Beijing Olympics

According to Epoch Times, Wang Juntao (王军涛), a prominent figure during the 1989 movement, thinks the recent arrest of Hu Jia is directly linked to the upcoming Olympics in Beijing. During an interview with the paper, Wang points out that the 2008 Olympics has in fact become a focal point for human rights in China. Therefore, the Chinese government wishes to control the dissidents and eliminate challenging voices before the Olympics.

Wang calls on the international society to pay close attention to the case and provide enough pressure to force the government to release Hu Jia.
