Chinese rights lawyer admits subversion in what wife calls show trialBy Christian Shepherd BEIJING (Reuters) - A prominent former Chinese rights lawyer on trial for subverting state power on Tuesday said overseas workshops inspired him to try to overthrow China's political system, in what his wife and activists said was a show trial designed to discredit him. Jiang Tianyong, 64, who was disbarred in 2009 after he took on sensitive cases such as defending practitioners of the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement, disappeared last November while visiting the family of another detained rights lawyer, Xie Yang. Jiang was formally charged with subversion more than six months later.
