Chen in U.S. closes crisis that began in late April

The Chinese dissident blind Chen Guangcheng, his wife and two sons have left today for New York , ending a crisis that began last April 27 that threatened to create tensions between the U.S. and China. Chen has not been expelled, or has applied for asylum. For him, it was found the easy solution of a visa to study at New York UniversityAdmitted to a clinic in Beijing after being a guest of the U.S. Embassy in China, Chen told the 'Washington Post' that the authorities have warned him only this morning at 11 o'clock the next departure. All'aeoroporto arrived, Chen got the passports and visas. Then I flew out just before 18 (local time) accompanied by U.S. officials. "I try all sorts of emotions," Chen said on the phone just before leaving, still bewildered by recent events. Kept in hospital in recent days, Chen could not even greet his mother before leaving. It has repeatedly expressed concern about the fate of family members left behind, after his brother Chen Guangfu was tortured by police and his nephew Chen Kegui was charged with attempted murder for defending himself by plainclothes officers who were assaulted. The case is deflagrato Chen in late April on the eve of the session of strategic dialogue and economic between the U.S. and China, to be held in Beijing with the participation of the Secretary of State Hillary. The dissident was adventurously escaped from house arrest which was in fact confined to his village of Dongshigu in the eastern province of Shendong, the night between 22 and 23 April. Arriving in Beijing, after a journey of 650 kilometers accomplished with the help of friends, Chen has taken refuge in the U.S. .And 27, thanks to the Chinese in exile in the United States, was released on YouTube a video in which he asked Justice at the top of Beijing. For several days the U.S. Embassy has maintained silence on the presence of Chen, taken for granted by various sources. In the meantime, has started a frantic diplomatic negotiations, which seemed to find a solution on the morning of Clinton's arrival in Beijing on May 2. Chen was released by the embassy and was rushed to a hospital, where he riabbracciato his wife. The agreement was that it was a free citizen, but soon Chen began to fear for his safety. And less than 24 hours after its release from the embassy has asked to come to the U.S. The solution found so as not to publicly embarrass China was that of the visa application to study abroad.Clinton is back in the U.S. and Chen remained in Beijing. Now that the dissident party, while world leaders gathered for the G8 summit at Camp David, Washington can boast a successful result of a diplomatic 'soft', without head-on collisions that were likely to be counterproductive. Chen will be accepted in the United States by China Aid , the Chinese dissident Christian organization led by Bob Fu, who has always been close. Became blind as a child, Chen is a self-taught lawyer engaged in defending the rights of the peasants of his native province of Shandong. In 2005 it became known denouncing the story of thousands of women forced to have abortions or be sterilized in the name of the one-child policy. The authorities punished some officials in charge, but while Chen was sentenced to four years in prison for inciting the protests. And once his sentence, he found himself under arrest domicilari fact, from which it then sensationally escaped.
