Activist allowed to return to China

After 92 days of living inside Narita Airport, human rights activist Feng Zhenghu has been told that he will be allowed to return to China:

Feng had already announced Sunday that he had decided to end his protest after meeting with officials from the Chinese Embassy last week. But it wasn’t clear until Tuesday whether China would allow him to re-enter the country – he had been denied entry eight times since June, prompting his protest.

“Chinese officials told me that they are giving me permission to go back to Shanghai,” Feng, 55, told reporters Tuesday at the airport terminal, where reporters were allowed in by security.

He said he planned to enter Japan on Wednesday before heading back to Shanghai for the Chinese New Year in mid-February.

Feng said Tuesday that he was certain that this attempt to return home would be successful.
“I won’t be rejected again. That would be impossible,” he said. “If that happens, it’s not my problem. It’s the Chinese government’s problem.”
