Ai Weiwei Bailed

Ai Weiwei has been released on bail, having pleaded guilty to charges of tax evasion. He has offered to repay the taxes and was instructed not to give interviews to the media. He is seen here with a media scrum on his doorstep. He says he is in good health, although Chinese authorities cite a chronic health problem as one of the reasons for his release. Police allege that Beijing Fake Cultural Development Ltd has evaded a huge amount of tax and destroyed accounting documents (title link). Its address in China is 258 FAKE (CLICK).
