Boxun’s reporter was informed that because of posting criticism of propaganda czar Liu Yunshan, detained famed rightist writer Tie Liu has been formally charged in court. His attorney Liu Xiaoyuan announced that on Wednesday February 11, at the expiry of the deadline for prosecution, Tie Liu’s wife heard from the Procuratorate that the case wouldn’t be pursued. She went to Chengdu’s Qingyang District Court and was told the case had not been registered with the court yet. Because of this, attorney Liu Xiaoyuan surmises that the case may be in the seven-day process of being registered for trial.

On the morning of September 14, 2014, Tie Liu was detained in Beijing on the charge of suspicion of creating a public disturbance.
