Ching Cheong

Ching Cheong (Chinese: 程翔; pinyin: Chéng Xiáng; born in 1949) is a senior journalist with The Straits Times. He is best known for having been detained by the People's Republic of China on allegations of spying for Taiwan. He was imprisoned from April 2005 to February 2008, spending more than 1000 days in prison. Human rights advocates and others called for his release saying the charges were groundless. During the process, he was viciously accused, deplorably defamed ( he was accused to have an affair with a woman which has proved to be fictitious) and unlawfully imprisoned.
