China releases Ai Weiwei

He is probably lucky that he is such a well known artist because otherwise, he could have easily been ignored and gone for much longer. That’s the world’s favorite business partner in action. BBC News:

He was bailed late on Wednesday after pleading guilty to charges of tax evasion, Xinhua news agency said.

An outspoken critic of China’s human rights record, his arrest in April prompted a global campaign for his release.

The 54-year-old said he was back home and in good health in a phone interview with the BBC.

“I am already home, released on bail, I can’t talk to media but I am well, thanks for all the media attention,” he said.
