Authorities arrested Xu Zhiyong, a Beijing attorney known for his anti-government views, on Tuesday July 16, seizing his telephones and computers in the process. Xu stands accused of disrupting the public order, even though he has been under house arrest for the past three months. Xu’s causes include representing the victims of the tainted milk powder scandal in 2008, campaigning for officials to disclose their wealth, and publicly calling for the release of imprisoned activists.
