Q: Australian journalist Cheng Lei has returned home to Australia after serving her sentence in China. Do you have any comment on this?
A: Relevant Chinese authorities have released the information on this, which you may refer to. I would like to stress that China’s judicial authorities tried the case and delivered the sentence in accordance with the law. The rights of the individual concerned under the law were fully protected, and Australia’s consular rights including the right to visit and the right to be notified were respected and implemented.
