Reporters Without Borders is saying Yahoo! Holdings Ltd. in Hong Kong "provided China’s state security authorities with details that helped to identify and convict" journalist Shi Tao, who has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
"Information supplied by Yahoo ! led to the conviction of a good journalist who has paid dearly for trying to get the news out. It is one thing to turn a blind eye to the Chinese government’s abuses and it is quite another thing to collaborate."
