Wang Xiaoning, 62, was one of four Chinese dissidents who accused Yahoo! of helping to convict them by handing over private data to the Communist party.

Mr Wang, who was jailed in 2003, will be released on Friday, his wife Yu Ling told AFP. In 2007, Mrs Yu said Yahoo! had “betrayed” her husband.

Mrs Yu, 61, said Mr Wang had been badly treated in prison, but remained in relatively good health, and added that he could face further restrictions after his release.

“My goal is to get him home peacefully and avoid all trouble (from the authorities),” she said.

Mr Wang posted essays on the internet calling for democracy and criticising China’s one-party system.
