A citizen journalist reporting on the truth of the COVID-19 pandemic from China has been sentenced to four years in prison. 

Zhang Zhan, aged 37 years old, was convicted on charges of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” at the Shanghai Pudong New Area People’s Court Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported. The trial reportedly lasted only 2.5 hours. Zhan was accused by prosecutors of spreading falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic via social media posts and interviews with overseas news outlets.
