`SARS hero' blasts Beijing for Tiananmen Incident
Tuesday, Mar 09, 2004,Page 1

A military doctor who exposed China's SARS cover-up last year was questioned yesterday over a media leak of a letter he wrote to top leaders asking for a reappraisal of the 1989 Tiananmen Incident pro-democracy protests.

A source close to Dr. Jiang Yanyong (???) said officials from his hospital came to his home yesterday and asked him how his letter to the Communist Party's 24-seat Politburo had reached the media.

"He told them he didn't leak the letter and that he didn't know how the outside world knew about it. He told them they could conduct an investigation into it," the source said.

Jiang, met by two reporters outside his 12th-story flat in western Beijing, waved his hand and said: "No filming."
