Great Regulars: Chinese authorities have allowed a dissident

Chinese writer, who was held under house arrest in a crackdown last year, to leave for New York with his family under strict instructions not to speak out in public or to get involved with overseas activists, sources said Monday.

The move is seen as an attempt to remove dissident voices ahead of a key Chinese leadership transition later this year.

Gu Chuan, his wife Li Xin'ai, and their two children were escorted to their flight by China's state security police and arrived in New York at the weekend.
