Lawyer and rights activist Jiang Tianyong is expected to be handed a verdict on his subversion charges on Tuesday, his wife says.

Jiang is known for defending high-profile dissidents and practitioners of Falun Gong, the banned spiritual movement, before he was disbarred in 2009.

He disappeared in November 2016 after travelling to Hunan to support fellow rights lawyer Xie Yang. Jiang was later charged with “inciting subversion of state power” and was put on trial in the central province in August.

“The government-appointed lawyer told his father of another court session scheduled for 9.30am on Tuesday,” Jiang’s wife Jin Bianling said by phone from Los Angeles. “He also told Jiang’s sister there would be a verdict … and that Jiang’s father could attend.”
