A blind human rights activist, whose previous conviction was overturned, will return to court on Monday, Reuters reported. But his lawyer, has raised fears that the new trial may not hear claims of the use of torture to obtain testimony. In 2005, Chen Guangcheng reported late-term forced abortions and other family planning abuses in Shandong Province. Then in August he was sentenced to four years and three months in jail on charges of damaging property and disrupting traffic during a protest in his home village of Dongshigu. His family has repeatedly said the case was trumped up by officials set in revenge. An appeal court ordered a retrial.
