DISSIDENT Wei Jingsheng's appeal against his 14-year jail term for conspiring to subvert the Government will be heard today. 'They informed us we should go to the court at nine in the morning,' a family member said. 'They said they would announce a verdict,' he said, adding he did not know whether it would be announced in open court. The Beijing Higher People's Court was expected to review evidence and other documents behind closed doors after which it would have three options - uphold the intermediate court verdict and sentence, cut the sentence or order a retrial. Wei, 45, a 1995 Nobel Peace Prize nominee, was convicted on December 13 and sentenced to 14 years in jail for financing the struggling democracy movement. His sister denounced the trial as a farce.
