Books, Emails and Reports re Deutsche Welle

Li Qi (黎奇), one of the authors of the Open Letter published by the Neue Rheinische Zeitung in April last year, also authored a book about Deutsche Welle, his former employer. The August-von-Goethe Literaturverlag apparently published the book in October this year – “Deutsche Welle’s China Nightmare” (China-Albtraum der Deutschen Welle).

A Huanqiu Shibao article published on November 9 this year contains references to the book, plus “latest news” about the Deutsche Welle Chinese department saga, but at first glance, there is little that I would take as fact right away.

Today, I received an unsolicited e-mail (probably a mass email) from a Chinese dissident in Germany, the details of which I can’t take as facts right away either. Some of it appears to refer to Li Qi, too, but from an angle which is different from Huanqiu’s, obviously.

Also according to Huanqiu, Germany’s Federal Labor Court will probably decide Wang Fengbo‘s case (see interview of January this year here) by the end of this year.

Might come back to the stories later this week.
