Reporters Without Borders called on Yahoo! to supply a list of all cyber dissidents it has provided data on, beginning with 81 people in China whose release the worldwide press freedom organization is currently campaigning for.

It said it had discovered that Yahoo! customer and cyber dissidents Li Zhi had been given his eight-year prison sentence in December 2003 based on electronic records provided by Yahoo. How many more cases are we going to find? it asked. We were sure the case of Shi Tao, who was jailed for 10 years last April on the basis of Yahoo-supplied data, was not the only one. Now we know Yahoo works regularly and efficiently with the Chinese police.
