Government continues to stonewall on Gao Zhisheng's fate

Asked about Gao Zhisheng's whereabouts at a recent press conference, the Foreign Ministry spokesman could offer nothing better than vague nothings: "The relevant judicial authorities have decided this case, and we should say this person, according to Chinese law, is where he should be." This is not quite the same as saying he is alive and in custody. Note how he can't even bring himself to say Gao's name - shades of Bill Clinton and "that woman".
