A Chinese journalist who posted allegations of corrupt dealings during the privatization of state-owned assets has been formally arrested on a defamation charge, his lawyer said.

The Beijing People’s Procuratorate approved Liu Hu’s arrest on Sept. 30, lawyer Zhou Ze said by phone today. Liu, who worked for the Guangzhou-based New Express, had been in detention since Aug. 24, according to Zhou.
