Liu Ping is no stranger to standing up for universal human rights. Most recently, she has tried to tackle corruption in China by pushing for government officials to make their assets public. Now, she's been sentenced to more than six years in prison. Lu Ping has stated that she was tortured during her pre-trial detention, and she continues to be at risk. Her case highlights the hypocrisy of Chinese government officials, who claim to be clamping down on corruption, yet persecute those who try to expose it.
