Chen Guangcheng: “No Remaining Legal Issues”

Chen Guangcheng leaves U.S. embassy for what, it is suggested, is going to be a normal life in China. Meantime, Beijing reportedly makes some unusual announcements concerning investigations of “extralegal” activities of the local authorities in Chen’s hometown, and demands an apology from the U.S. for interference in Chinese domestic affairs.

  1. Never believed that he would go to the US – he had never been officially accused of anything, and his family would have been left behind in China.


  2. I don’t know Mr. Chen personally, and even if I did, I wouldn’t have been able to predict his decision. I wouldn’t have ruled this scenario out either, because it would have included his family.

    Gao Zhisheng reportedly broke down in 2010. It’s hard to tell when I’d wish that people carried on or gave in. I think if “non-interference” has a real meaning, it is about personal decisions under circumstances we never experienced ourselves.

    What I do know is that I wish Chen and any honest citizen success – success in leading lives that correspond with their values.


  3. It will probably take a while before we know what was and is really going on – maybe months.
