Qu Liqiu, the wife of jailed mainland academic Lu Jianhua, hopes the mainland authorities will grant an amnesty to her husband following a call by freed journalist Ching Cheong for an amnesty in the year of the Olympics.

'I hope more people, especially those who are innocent, will be given an amnesty,' Mrs Qu said. 'Of course I hope Lu Jianhua will be freed, too.'

Lu is serving a 20-year jail term on the mainland for leaking state secrets in connection with Ching's case.

When asked how likely Lu would be granted bail like Ching, Mrs Qu said: 'I am not sure, I have not thought it through.'
