Following Dui Hua's July 2 statement on the release on parole of naturalized American citizen and businessman Jude Shao, Executive Director John Kamm was invited by The Wall Street Journal/Asia to comment on the case. Kamm's op-ed, entitled "Free on the Fourth of July," was published on July 4 and discussed the background of Shao's case, the significance of his release, and the value of human rights diplomacy in the pursuit of better treatment and clemency for prisoners.
