The wife of a Chinese human rights lawyer has died in the US due to cancer. 55-year-old Zhang Qing went to America in 2009 due to the torture of China. From there she had been appealing to the Xi Jinping government of China for the independence of her husband Yang Maodang, but China rejected her appeal every time. Qing left this world on Monday with the hope of meeting her husband and living life together.
Husband sent to jail repeatedly after implicating him in a false case of corruption
The Chinese government repeatedly implicated Qing’s husband on false charges of corruption and sent him to prison. Whereas, Qing’s husband himself uncovered a case of corruption. The Chinese government has been suppressing people who talk about human rights in the past. Her husband has been accused of corruption in a village.
President Xi Jinping is believed to be trying to eliminate his opponents through an anti-corruption campaign.

Wanted to go to meet wife at the last moment, but did not get approval
