Lantos: Yahoo! Lied About China

Congressman Tom Lantos, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, says that Yahoo! has provided false information to Congress regarding its part in the arrest and imprisonment of Shi Tao. He is now asking Yahoo! executives Jerry Yang and Michael Callahan to appear before the committee early next month.
"Our committee has established that Yahoo provided false information to Congress in early 2006," Lantos said in a written statement. "We want to clarify how that happened, and to hold the company to account for its actions both before and after its testimony proved untrue. And we want to examine what steps the company has taken since then to protect the privacy rights of its users in China."
